I run mine on a timer in the winter for 3 hours each day. The RV is stored in a fully enclosed garage. The humidity stays around 50% in the winter

We use a metal canister called H2OUT. When it has absorbed all the water it can, a strip on the outside of the canister turns from blue to pink. You put it in the oven for 2 hours to dry it out. Never needs replacing and works great.

I just started using one this year...It pulls out a considerable amount of moisture, however..the only good way to do this is to seal the camper..hence closing all vents and windows. The drawback is that it gets hot from the unit running. I think a timer is the way to go...find one with a timer and run it for a few hours a day.

Here in the western dust bowl state (California) there has been so little moisture that we're thinking of running a humidifier to ADD moisture to our RV

I have a bucket of water at both ends of the trailer and keep water in the toilet bowl to keep the seal from drying out. There is absolutely no humidity here in Albuquerque.

I wish I had one during our Maine trip. I brought our Aprilaire hygrometer and it read 70%+ due to the constant rain.
