I have the Eva Dry and have no water in the bottom. There is however water droplets on the walls. Does anyone know if this is normal?

If you have a 1/4" of water in the bottom, it sounds like you have bigger problems! Are you sure there are no air leaks? Did you caulk all the seams/joints? Are you opening the lid every 5 seconds?

Yes. Everything is caulked and sealed. Only gets opened a few times a month.

Buy 2 500's or ad a few cheap computer fans and you should be good!

Had that a lot with mine. Probably getting through the top seal.

Similar to what I said above, make sure your lid to collar seals well. I had a ton of water infiltrating, caulked everything, and still had some issues. I ended up having to use two 15# dumb bells to get the great seal.

Another suggestion I heard was work on getting the humidity outside the kegorator to a reasonable level. That may not be feasible in a garage.
