I live in steamy florida and use the above. Works great and pulls about as much power as a lightbulb. With my old boat i fought mold with damp rid until someone on here pointed me in this direction. Its not a true dehumidifier but it works

I second these. I have two in my boat. Keeps air moving and add's a little heat.

What about storage in a barn without electricity? My x-10 was dry when I put it in and I cracked open the cover after placing moth balls (to keep the rodents out). However, should I put a separate mold preventer in the boat? I live in Wisconsin and winter is pretty dry.

I've been using a simple box fan on low under the cover for years now and never have any mold issues.
