There is an interesting paradox that happens in Texas in regards to the amount of rainfall we get. Here’s a quick summation. It has been raining voluminous amounts and people are pretty much over the inconsistencies Texas’ rainy season. If you are a Texan, you just accept this as part of living here. Of course, just because you know what the score is doesn’t mean you don’t complain about it. Then, it suddenly stops and before we know it we are begging for the rain to come back. Texans are never satisfied. In the meantime, humidity is just a part of life, especially here in Houston. Not only is the humidity high in our homes and office, it is REALLY high in our motorhomes and trailers. Even though you may not have had any leaks in your RV, it was probably closed up during the storms and just smells a little musty. If there is one thing I’ve never grown accustom to, it’s that dank, musty, stale air. I dislike it so much that I went on a mission to find a few products that really work to help get rid of that musty smell. I have become a big fan of the Eva-Dry Dehumidifiers. These handy dehumidifiers are filled with silica gel, a very “thirsty” substance and it even has a handy indicator on the front of the unit that tells you when it’s time to recharge the silica. At that point, you simply plug it into any power outlet and, in a few short hours, the silica is good to go again for another 30-60 days. There’s no messy crystals, or water to spill out. The crystals just absorb the water and then they recharge. Voila! I love it when things work this easily.
Here are some other great dehumidifiers for you to peruse. All get the job done very efficiently.
The bottom line is that high humidity is not only a odoriferous nightmare, but it can cause damage to your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth-wheel. Look into equipping your RV with a dehumidifier and literally clear the air.
As always, if you have any questions about which dehumidifier might be best for your RV, don’t hesitate to contact PPL Motorhomes.
