What size and type of dehumidifiers are you all using or recommending?



I have a BT Cruiser that needs to be stored/parked outside for two months of rainy cold pacific northwest weather.


Do I want a tube type to drain the water away?
A catch basin type? (If so how many liters am I likely to need?)
Or are the pellets/granules enough for this soaking wet climate?


Or should I just heat it? Vents open? Partially open? Closed tight?



Honest - I looked and couldn't find such a discussion.


Bests to all you all!

The Dri-z-Air types work well for small spaces like cupboards or closets but are not sufficient for any length of time in an area as big as a motorhome in the PNW

I would use one with a drain hose (or modify the tank style to accept a hose), and set it in the bathtub/shower for the winter. We used a tank-type dehumidifier in Wisconsin summers, and it seems like it was always overflowing because I'd forget to empty it, leading to putting all that moisture back in the air.

JMHO.
