    Greetings,

    I live in the PacNW about an hour North of Seattle. It gets wet and damp around here and the stories are true. I'm new to a Pup and am keeping mine in the garage year round, but I'm wondering if I need to add a dehumidifier into the Pup for the winter?

    If so, what kind do I get? I have no idea.


    Thanks everyone. Much appreciated.
    Cheers.

    I've used DampRid but, for me, the jury is still out on how effective it was. DampRid definitely removed moisture, but I just don't know how much was left behind after it was saturated.

    We use DampRid, but we are on the dry side of the Cascade Mountains. We just fill the container once when we winterize, which is usually just after an October trip to the coast when we get nicely damp. On the soggy wet side, you may need to refill DampRid several times per winter.
