    do any of you use 120V electric dehumidifiers ?(e.g., the 180 Watt round pancake type ) for long term storage of your popup in mild climates?

    especially A-frame campers?

    or is it a waste of time if there is a least a little ventilation and the camper is under a fabric RV cover (trailer-specific shape)

    I never worried about moisture in the pop up mostly because it never crossed my mind. Never had a problem. When we bought the TT, I read the owners manual :)shocked:) and it suggested damp-rid. I used that over two winters and it did collect quite a bit of water. At about $5 each (we use two for a 19 foot trailer) it's cheap insurance.

    Those round pancakes are just heaters that keep things above the dew point. They do not actually remove moisture.
