    Lasted Less Than a Year

    By Retired Boat Guy

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

    • Easy to Use
    • Simple Operation
    • Visually Pleasing

    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.

          Comments about Air Dryer with Fan, Dehumidifier:

          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.

                We put this heater on the floor board of the boat. Really helps to eliminate moisture in the boat while it is covered for the winter.

                        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.

                        Years ago I bought 2 similar units for household use. They've been running in closets 10+ years. I also use this last unit in a closet & hope it lasts as long. All 3 are in houses located in the tropics and are very effective at drying the air and preventing mold on bicycles, shoes and sporting equiepment.
