Humidifier, AirSense 10, AutoSet

Humidifier, AirSense 10, AutoSet
I have a problem with the humidifier since I have the CPAP.
I was waked up due to a stuffy nose or dry mouth. I read I should try the manual setting of the humidifier. I changed the level of humidity and found 7 is OK.
Then I was awake due to a bubbling sound coming from the water deposited in the tubbing. Tried to get rid of the condense and changed the temperature of the tubing to 80 F.
It has less humidity but now from the condensed water, water dropped on the bed from the connection between tubbing.
I called the provider and was advised to avoid this to make sure the tubing temperature is equal to the room temperature. Decreased to 65 F and now the drops come on my nose and the bubbling sound still exists.
Please advise what setting to use because now I cannot sleep not because of OSA but the humidification.

To avoid condensation in the tube, its temperature needs to be higher than the room temperature.  I would try a temperature of at least 80 F, and see what happens.  
Hope this helps.

The tube temperature should be higher than the room temperature.  Raise it to 80. With manual setting the humidity and tube temperature are separate settings.

I never have trouble with condensation in the tubing, as I use the Auto setting.

A better way is to route the tube up ((maybe over the headboard if you have one) so the water will just drain back into the humidifier. They make stands for this if no headboard or other way to route the tubing.
