It's Working

The Old Lady wants to call it Casper Jr.*
We got a small dehumidifier recently and at first we weren't sure how well it was working. It did get some water in the tank, but weren't sure just how much it was doing to reduce the moisture in The Guppy. At first it was in the living/kitchen area and then I put it up on the bunk over the cab. One of the reasons we got it was because there was a lot of condensation on the window across the front of the bunk area. It would run down the glass and fill the channel in the window frame and then run down the paneling. I had brought along a piece of paneling to replace the piece that was getting wet. I didn't want to replace the panel until the condensation problem was fixed. Today I checked the front window and there was hardly any water on the inside of the glass. The dehumidifier had been on the bunk running for a couple days. The tank on it was a little less than half full. The tank holds half a liter or about a pint.

We got a new neighbor a few days ago and he suggested putting small bubble-wrap on the inside of the windows. He had just come down from Denver and said he had done that with his windows and had no trouble even with below zero temps. I am thinking about trying that with some of the windows, like the ones we don't need to see out, the front window in the bunk area is a prime candidate.

*My middle name is Casper, so that's why the Jr for the little white machine.

  2. can you crack your roof vent? That usually helps. We put aluminum foil on our bedroom windows and it seemed to keep the moisture down as well as darken the bedroom. We were also in 24 hour daylight in Alaska and needed the dark room to sleep.
