Re: Cold Weather Hull Condensation

I have been using this EVA-Dry 4000 for about nine months here in SF bay and have been very happy with it. It is a rotary desiccant dehumidifier that works down to 34F. Much lighter and less bulky than a compressor version. It has a drain feature and re-starts on a power interruption. Auto regulates the humidity, and pulls out much more moisture than the EVA-2200 peltier model. Good luck.

Re: Cold Weather Hull Condensation

Re: Cold Weather Hull Condensation

Do you think I could add the product you put in your paint in the cleaner I use under side of sumbrella on the fly bridge where I have to fight mildew in the humid summer? What is the name of it? Thanks

I have used a GE dehumidifier on board and it works great. Also vents a little heat out that is dry,,,no more drips ! 8 years and use when needed. I was looking at the Evadry to mount in forward and aft cabins during this refit and plumbing into shower sumps. Not sure how well they work though.
