Do not underestimate the power of this little dehumidifier. We couldn’t manage without it in Florida. It works like a champ to keep our trailer dry. There are some really good dehumidifiers out there but they are much larger. This one, for its size, does a fine job. In fact, we’re thinking about getting another one – one for each end of the trailer.
Don’t expect a massive amount of moisture to be harvested from the environment overnight – maybe a cup a night is all we get in very wet weather. A larger dehumidifier will do a more professional job and those can be rented at Home Depot for a couple of days – which is a good thing to do annually. Also, desert camping is a good way to dry out.
This unit is for daily use. It’s very quiet. In wet weather, it keeps the moisture from collecting inside the trailer. It uses very little power, so we run it full-time. It fits in a small open spot which was designed for an old-style speaker. Every morning, as part of my housework routine, I empty about a half to a full cup of water, depending on the weather.
Of course, if we had more room to accomodate a larger dehumidifier, we’d have one. So, for now, this brave little dehumidifier is better than no dehumidifier at all. It’s a quality product of sturdy construction and simple, elegant design which blends in with any decor.
