Chinstrap
Have you checked leak rate, home vs away from home?

Leakrate was pretty much the same. I def need to get a chin strap, just curious why i didn't need one on vaca, mouth never opened...
How about your nose, the more your nose get congested, the more you,ll breathe through your mouth

I think it's probably a number of things relating to your environment. Room temp, humidity of course, but also possibly a very real difference in your mattress and sleeping position. You must feel you're comfortable with your home mattress, but perhaps your body doesn't agree all that much.

Then too, it could just be the dog laying on your head all night.

If you are waking up with your mouth very dry at home, it sounds to me like you are getting significant mouth leaks and if you did not on vacation that would explain the difference. It also says that you might want to try a chin strap or a full face mask. Try the chin strap first.

Best regards,

You could have congestion after you mask up or asleep

Numbers don,t usually tell the whole story, compare leak graphs, short spikes in the graph and non at other times, may indicate some mouth leaks

Sometimes, not everything can be explained in numbers, keep an eye for aliens, known to cause mischief

Maybe you should lower your temperature settings and nudge your humidity "up" a bit. That might help. Make you feel more like you are sleeping in an air conditioned vacation room. Just a thought.
