Hi: Chapitre... We always leave the MaxxFan open about an inch. That usually lets out enough air to keep the moisture from being a problem. A plastic bucket on the floor with a container of Dri-Z-Air in it, will also help collect moisture. The bucket is important if you don't visit often to empty the tray...VERY SLIPPERY STUFF!!! Alf

Chapi, we close everything up tight. I feel if it is dry inside when you park it, and close everything, there is no possibility for moisture ingress. Has worked for me the past 25 yeas of owning an RV, though we do get fairly dry winters around here.

I put one of these in, check it every so often and recharge as necessary. I like that it is easy to recharge and use over and over.

We use 2 of the same thing. Keep the trailer closed up unless it is a low humidity day in which case I will open everything up maybe once a month for the day and close back up before night.
