Those are good ideas. I used to have one of those Eva-Dry units and they are indeed a joke. I had it for the summer though, not the winter. It tends to be very dry here once the temperature goes below freezing. My old boat had an Espar (Eberspacher), my new one does not. That goes a long way towards keeping the boat dry because it exchanges air with the outside. I think I'm going to try to heat with electric only this year rather than install one of those systems. I also do not have a 50Hz inverter, but I'm sure I can find a similar dehumidifier that works at 60Hz. I may also add a 50Hz inverter so I can run the washing machine. Does anyone have experience separating out the electrical system so some things run on the inverter and some things don't? Or did you just wire it right into the main breaker (in which case how do you run the hot water heater)?
