    why is it not advisable again?
    It is ok.

    Under direct cold blown air, turn on and turn off the air cond will make RH% inside dry cab lower than advisable manufacturer for photography gears (40-50%RH), leading to problem in leather and plastic like cracked because its too dry.

I am just wondering if the insulation rubber is good enough as I didn't open at all and it keeps increasing the RH...
    Wait for more few days. New dry cab should have good insulation rubber, unless defect unit.

    What's your dry cab temperature reading? Mine is always 29degreeC. Room temperature at 30degreeC.

    Compare to mine, it is 2degreeC warmer. Is there direct sunshine on dry cab? Relocate the dry cab may help.

    Sounds like you weren't getting a good seal previously.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you said if you push the tray in further from previously, the RH and temp drops, right? Lost in translation here
