    I have an EvaDry dessicant style dehumidifier in my gun safe should I put it on top of the safe on the bottom of the safe or in the middle of the safe

    The one I have says put near top. I have since put several more near the bottom and have concluded they don't work very well with the humidity where my safe is.

    I live in Colorado Springs which is classified as a High Plains desert. So the desiccant keeps the safe dry enough because I don't see any rust on any of my guns.

    My humidity meter currently reads 22% but if I can optimize the placement of the EvaDry I want to.

    I have a golden rod on the floor/ bottom and a ever dry hanging from a shelf in the middle.
