How do I keep moisture out of my camper in storage?

To keep moisture out of your camper in storage, you can take a few simple steps. First, clean and dry the camper thoroughly before storing it, including removing any food or other perishable items. Second, use a dehumidifier or moisture absorber to keep the air inside the camper dry. Third, use breathable covers to protect the camper from the elements. Fourth, check the camper regularly and air it out as needed. Finally, consider using desiccant packets or other moisture-absorbing materials in storage compartments to prevent moisture buildup. By following these tips, you can help protect your camper from damage and ensure that it stays in great condition while in storage.

Desiccant packets and other moisture-absorbing materials are a simple and effective way to prevent moisture buildup in storage compartments and other areas of your camper. These materials work by absorbing moisture from the air, which helps prevent mold, mildew, and other types of damage that can be caused by excess moisture.

Desiccant packets are small sachets containing a moisture-absorbing substance, such as silica gel or activated carbon, and are often used in packaging to prevent moisture damage. These packets can be placed in storage compartments, cabinets, and other areas of your camper to help absorb excess moisture.

Other moisture-absorbing materials that can be used include clay-based products, which absorb moisture and create a barrier to prevent moisture from returning, and calcium chloride crystals, which absorb moisture and turn into a liquid that can be easily disposed of.

When using desiccant packets or other moisture-absorbing materials in your camper, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and replace the packets or materials as needed. This can help ensure that they continue to effectively absorb moisture and prevent damage to your camper.
