Dry cabinet RH value
I had my dry cabinet running empty for the past few days and the RH value have been stable at 48. I added some equipment into the cabinet last night and now, the RH level is showing 54 after one day.
Do I need to adjust to make it lower again?

Thanks Witness. So it's ok to go above 55? I thought the standard RH for camera equipment is 45 to 55?

Best is to use your equipment very frequently. You don't even have to put it into a dry box. You can put it into a low RH environment and fungus can also grow due to no usage, happened to one of my mini telescopes.
