has anyone installed any kind of the "power vents" in the foundation skirting? I've been looking at installing a couple-two-three of the 6 or 7 inch power vents controlled by a humidistat instead of the standard 'free flow' vent thingies. The ones that are reversible would seem to be a perfect option - especially for a mobile home.

Or are the power vents overkill?

In cases where severe moisture is a problem I could see the use forced air movement. If you have "normal" moisture than the standard natural air flow should be fine.
