Default Best way to eliminate moisture in keezer

I have a keezer I built last year. I had a bucket of damp rid in it that worked pretty good. My fermentation chamber died and I used the keezer to ferment 10 gallons. It's done and in kegs now, but I can't get the condensation under control. My damp rid bucket got saturated, so I pitched it. I got one of the rechargeable dehumidifiers and a fan, but it still won't keep up. Any ideas?

I use a sham wow on the bottom, it works great.

Does it just catch water running down, or absorb moisture from the air to prevent condensation?

I use the Eva-dry E-500 in an 8.8cu Kenmore. Works great. Only have to recharge it every couple of months.

That's what I just bought. Did it take a bit for it to catch up with the moisture in there? I have a collar with the lid mounted on top. I just added some silicone to the top where the boards meet to try to make it more air tight.
