Moisture catcher/damp traps levels

of course, we got these at the dollar store, much cheaper.
We had a 2012 Shasta revere which didn't have enclosed underbelley or heated tanks.
We used 2 damp traps last winter and both were at least 3/4 full of water in the spring.
This winter, we used 2 new damp traps in the Eagle HT and I tossed them out today. One was nealy empty (i could tell it's done it's job though, the crystals were saturated but no liquid at the bottom and the other one had maybe 1/2 inch of water at the bottom. What a difference the glacier package makes!

Last winter (2011-12), I put two of those hanging bags in our trailer, and you could hardly tell they had been used. Only one this past winter (2012-13), and still almost no moisture. We do not have polar underbelly or heated tanks. And we do have a fair amount of humidity. Guess the Jayco is still pretty tight even after 10 years aging.
