RE: Resmed 10 moist on bottom
I would think not. Some questions come to mind:
Are you using the humidifier? Are you overfilling the humidifier? How cold is the room or the surface where the machine sits? If the machine sits without using it, does the bottom still get wet? When not using it, such as it sits all day, does the water level in the humidifier drop? If the water level drops when you are not using it that could indicate a leak. How old is the unit?

I don't empty mine. Some people do though. Unless yours has a leak from a crack or defect, which is possible, it sounds like it may be a combination of the seal not seated fully and you might be overfilling it. With your pressure it will move the water around some.

I was told by my DME to only fill to the line under the word Max (I added a green line in the picture below) and not to fill it to the top of the twin peaks (red line). Maybe try filling it half way, the yellow line in the picture below and see what happens.

What do you have the humidity level set at?

Is the humidifier heated and if so does it actually heat?
An unheated humidifier is going to cool and if it gets to the dew point inside your house you might well see some condensation collect.
Is your house cooled?
Do you see condensation on a water closet?

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

Okay, that's not too high. Try only filling it half way and see what happens in the morning.
