I took some leftover beef stew and put in the dehydrator yesterday.....I left it on for about 8 hours. The meat and the carrots were mostly dehydrated, but the potatoes were still in pretty big chunks.
Should I leave it in for a while longer ?

I often dry leftover beef stew for our trips and add dumplings at camp.
When I dry my stew I put the meat on one tray, the vegtables on another and the gravy on yet another tray. I do this because of the varying drying times. I have found that the potatoes take longer to dry so to remedy this problem i cut them up in smallish pieces so that they dry at the same time as the rest of the vegtables.
Maybe you cut try to cut them even though they are partly dried and continue to dry them, it would cut down on the drying time.

Thanks (as always) for the help......I left the potatoes in by themselves, and gvae them a couple more hours.
The plan is to rehydrate and cook it on a cross country ski outing sometime over the Christmas holidays. Can't wait !
