Default winter storage, mildew/condensation control

Stor N Dry Dryer

Looking at using this item for the cruiser this winter to prevent mold/mildew while closed up all winter and sitting on my lift.
It has a small fan the passes air over a small heating element to keep the cabin dry by keeping the temp above the dew point, preventing these problems. Not sure if it will keep the cabin above freezing or not as that's not what it's designed to for, and really don't want to have a small heater running all winter. I considered the hanging bag designs, but fail to see how they work if it will be nothing more than a block of ice once the temps drop.

Anyone use an item like this and your experience? Thanks

The best customer's interiors I've seen run fans year round. Most are 22' - 26' deck boats and cobalts that stay on the lift year round.

The don't heat like the ones you're considering, but keep the air circulating which takes care of the mildew/moisture.
