What I ended up doing is moving the remote for the one mini-split head I have set to dehumidify in the loft, changed the ac temp from 70 to 68 and now I haven't seen any indoor humidity over 60 percent. This evening when I came over to the shop the indoor humidity was at 45%

Got the shower door installed and a coat of stain on the oak stair treads.

we found that the temp setting is critical as to how much humidity is sucked out.
The unit has to run longer to suck the water out,but you know that.
Sometimes when we go away for a month we run a dehumidifier all the time to keep it dry (as much as we can).
We put the machine in the shower so the water just drains into the shower.

Carol can monitor the temps and humidity by phone somehow.
and can lower the temps if the humidity gets too high.
Mold is always on our minds.
Having the ceiling fans running 24/7 helps too.
