".. Dehumidification is THE SINGLE MOST important feature of AC.."
That statement leaves me so FLABBERGASTED that I don't know what to say in response,.. almost.
Let's totally disregard what I might wish say in response since that would surely get deleted.
I am given to understand that we humans are most comfortable at an Rh of ~40% provided the surrounding air temperature and radiant "inputs" are also within our human comfort zone.
I think you might agree therefore that dehumidification of a building's airflow might be at times, a highly undesirable "feature" of A/C operation. And what happens in say, Az when the Rh is sometimes, or maybe even predominantly, <10% Enough said...I will render no further response to kenlw.

that's good because my sides hurt from laughing at your illogic.

Believe what you want to belive, wwest. Let me know how that ice scraper works on the inside of your windows sometime.

Regarding these outlet airflow vents, can you describe in detail (or provide a picture) of how/where you mounted them and the part number? Reason I ask is that I am also trying to alleviate that noise in our Highlander.

In my travels worldwide, including especially Fairbanks, Anchorage, Point Barrow, and Goose Bay, I have NEVER encountered ice on the inside of my car windows.

Toyota P/N is 62905-60050, louver, sub-assy. Mounted just below and at the rear of the rear quarter panel window that unlike most minivans will not open to alleviate this COMMON problem.

Happened all the time on my late 60's Super Beetle in Anchorage. My girlfriend (now wife) made me trade it in fact - she got tired of scraping the inside of the window. Pitiful heater. Maybe there was moisture in there somewhere, but it sure iced up.
I've been to all those spots too. Was that you who cut me off in Happy Valley (or was it by the ACC store?).

Oh...... I see...
That's the reason my '78 Porsche Targa doesn't get to go out much to "play" in the winter snows. Saying it has a cabin heater is a bit of a stretch to begin with and then having the expectation that you have enough heat to keep the windshield interior clear of condensation coming back over the Snoqualmie pass on a dark, cold, snowy night, well....
Having to roll the windows down in a pretty severe snowstorm in order to keep the winshield defogged was not pleasing to my better half. Never happened again.
Of course the TENSION involved in driving a rear engine rear drive car in those conditions probably contributed greatly to the level of moisture being accumulated in the cabin.
