How air tight is your garage. With roof vents and doors that don't seal, letting in water laden air, it might be a up hill battle.

But the dehumidifyer is better than using a golden rod. All the golden rod is doing is heating the surrounding air so it will carry less water. The dehumidifyer will remove water from the air and circulate air through the garage. Just don't be opening and closing the doors too many times. TF

A small window unit air conditioner would also do the trick. It would cool things off and you would not have to fool with emptying that water dish thing.

I got to agree with WB a window air conditioner would work wonders, it sure did for me.

Great idea the only drawback is the A/C unit is controled by temperature and the dehumidifyer has a humidistat to control the on/off cycles. But when it hot and humid during the summer just crank it up and wax the car with some liquid refreshment to offset the dry enviroment. TF

The garage has no windows, I just resealed the door(some light shining threw). I think the dehumidifier might be good added protection.What size do i need?
