Default Keeping cuddy and cabin dry

Hey guys, just curious what you do if anything to keep the moisture level down in the cuddy and cabin? De-humidfiers or other methods??

Dryer sheets! Buy a box and put them throughout the cabin.

are you referring to winter storage or while in use?

While in use and storage too I guess. Was in cuddy tonight messing with lights and noticed it was kind of damp in there.

I turn all cabin cushions up on edge and open all storage compartments. I have 20" box fan in the cockpit and one in cabin circulating air 24-7 and never have had a mildew/moisture problem.
