    We bought one of these units and ran it all winter last year. We placed in the salon of our 36' Carver. It was amazing how it kept the air moving ever so slightly and by putting out just a bit of warmth it kept the cabin fresh. This fall we purchased another one to go in the aft cabin...and we are running both now. They really keep the air fresh and circulating. These units are perfect for boats left in the water or stored on land. They are not heaters...but they are amazing dehumidifiers! We stay over on our boat even in the winter months as it is our getaway...and now when we enter the boat even after a couple fo weeks, its fresh and my wife can't smell any foul odors...and that's a good thing. We're sold!

    The product is small and nice looking. It isn't exactly quiet, but noise level is low enough to sleep with. BUT it doesn't bring down the humidity level in our small travel trailer (about 78 sq. ft.) I'd return it, but I lost the box it came in.

      Not only a useful tool to keep mildew away, but also extremely durable. I have many friends using it for years. I bought mine about 8 years ago. It has been on 24/7 for 6 months every year since. I paid about 50-60 dollars for it back then, so it was definitely worth the money.

      Lasted Less Than a Year

      Pros

      • Easy to Use
      • Simple Operation

      Cons

      • 1st One - Less Than 1 Yr
      • Not Durable

      Best Uses

      • Open Area In Covered Boat

      I installed one of these less than a year ago and it lasted less than a year, it appears to have overheated even though it was in an open area on the floor of the boat. Exchanged it with no hassle. Hope this one lasts a lot longer.
      I use it in my covered 22' open bow boat which is stored in my driveway in a coastal city. Not sure when the first one gave up but I had to clean the under side of the cover as it had quite a bit of mildew. Hoping this one lasts a long time and does the job to prevent mildew from forming. If you purchase one, check it from time to time to make sure it's working properly and preventing mold build up.
      I was pleased with the no hassle return.

            We already had an older model in use in our fore cabin and got this one for our aft cabin. We have had the older one for several years and have been pleased with it. Both are quiet and produce enough heat to prevent condensation and mildew in the cabins.

            Service and delivery comments:

            This took over a week to be delivered! We have never had that problem with West Marine before. But, it did arrive in good condition and we were able to track it when it did not arrive promptly.

                          The product is small and nice looking. It isn't exactly quiet, but noise level is low enough to sleep with. BUT it doesn't bring down the humidity level in our small travel trailer (about 78 sq. ft.) I'd return it, but I lost the box it came in.
