Having endured the heat at Kemah in the summer, What? 80 degrees that is winter time. I had a miserable sleepless night. I use a bigger model of these.
DP: Dry Pal Dehumidifier
Ideal for boats, campers, and RV units - 250-350 cubic feet
Mermaid's Dry-Pal Dehumidification units are an ideal addition to any vessel, camper, or RV, where dehumdification is a must. This product can be used instead of using your air conditioning system. Manfufactured out of 304-18 gauge polished stainless steel.
The Dry-Pal is available in 110v or 220v applications. This product is designed to dehumidify an area 250-350 cubic feet. It will dehumidify larger areas, however, optimal humidity levels will be more accurately achieved within the units parameters. Non-skid rubber feet are installed on each unit for the security of not damaging counter tops or tables. Ideal location for the unit is in an area where no air obstructions can occur. It is preferred on or near a sink or table where a drain can be utilized. The condensation that is accrued needs to drain to either an overboard thru-hull or a sump pump. Dry-Pal is protected with the security of a one-year warranty. 6 feet of clear 1/2 condensation hose provided.
DP Base Price: $499.00
The downside, it generates gallons of water, (5 gals or more per hour), and won't keep up with a sweaty body.
I have two 16000BTU AC units running full time, when one broke it couldn't keep up and the boat got TOO hot to sleep. I replaced it imediately.
I use the humidifier, the compressor type for when I'm not on the boat, and the two AC units on Generator when I am.
