Any suggestions on a compact unit for a Class A 36ft. ?

What are you going to do with the condensate that you collect?

Also, do you know that running the dehumidifier will result in a net heat gain into the space?

We use this one on the Oregon coast. We full time and will dump about 3 quarts every day. Makes a big difference with mustiness in the bedroom.

Please let us know whether this is for while the the coach is in STORAGE or while in use.


If in storage, the best answer is a small (30 pint) home-style dehumidifier.


Set it on the kitchen counter or in the shower draining into the gray tank unless stored at your house where you can empty the container. Set humidity at 50%-- high enough that it won't dry out the wood and low enough that no mold or mildew will grow.



The first 24 hours, it will remove a couple of quarts, little after that.


We have done exactly this on all our motorhomes and sailboats for the last 40 years.

Some small fans to circulate air can really help along with dehumidifier. Works well in dead air zones like in the bedroom with mattress ,lots of fabric and small dead air pockets. Honeywell has some small fans that really move some air at low power.
