RE: Water in Hose and Mask
I have had similar issues with my aircurve.  I came from a phillips unit and had it dialed in.  I have found the higher the humidity level you choose the more hose temp you need. I am in wisconsin and sleep with room cold around 58ish...I had to put a fleece cover on hose and run at 4 level and heated hose at 81...if I go colder in the room I go up to 85 on hose.  When it snows and my room humidity level is higher I can drop level to 3 and still get enough humidity...I also find that the newer machines are more efficient at getting humidity levels high and you might only need 2-3.

RE: Water in Hose and Mask
Got water in my mask again last night. I had switched my machine from auto to manual with tube temp. set to 80 and humidity at 4 and it seem to have helped the problem. Then last night I woke up again with water in my mask. I have been using a Dreamwear nasal mask for a long time and really like it but it started rubbing me a little raw under my nose. Probably need to change the cushion again. So last night I decided to try a new mask I just ordered and received which is the Resmed AirTouch N20. I don't see where changing the mask would effect whether I get water in my mask or not. Anybody else having this problem? Or could it be something wrong with my machine? Everything was working fine with it set to auto until a couple of weeks ago. Normally the humidity in the house stays around 45 to 50 but here in the last week it has been up to around 60.
