Re: Dehumidifier in wet/rain PNW?

Living aboard a 30'. I keep two small electric (west marine brand) dehumidifiers running full time. I'm tied to a dock with shore power though. When it's dry outside I crack the fwd hatch and open all of the other ones in hopes that air circulation will keep things fresher upon my return. It seems to be working. One dehumidifier is in the V berth, the other I move around near the aft qtr berth or the galley. I was using one but discovered mold/mildew on a couple things stored in the v berth, so that's why one is dedicated just to that space now. There's a little skylight up there that tends to leak if it's raining hard.
