"No, trust me it does happen in the summer (or did when I used the Full-faced mask), there was no fan and windows not open (most or the time anyway, I can't remember a time it happened with a window open.  We have Midges even though they…"

Kath Hope replied to Txarly's discussion Problems with rainout in my mask
"One other thing I forgot to say, is that even if you're using a full face mask, opening your mouth can cause this, so trying to keep your mouth closed (perhaps with a chin strap) can help.  Having said that, it's not possible for me…"

Sleep2snore replied to Txarly's discussion Problems with rainout in my mask
"Curing Rain-out in the hose/tubing is one thing, but I remember I had condensation in the mask itself but nothing to speak of in the hose.  This must be due to moisture from breathing out and condensing on the inside of the mask.  It would…"

Kath Hope replied to Txarly's discussion Problems with rainout in my mask
"That's good to hear the problem was improved Txarly, but I would now try to get your hose elevated because you may find you won't need to reduce the humidity if you can position it this way."

Txarly replied to Txarly's discussion Problems with rainout in my mask
"I have used it tonight, and i have had a bit of rainout. But, i increased the humidity level to 4.Tonight, i will try setting the humidity level to 3. But the amount of rainout haven't been high, just a bit."
