hose sliding off mask
#11
Thanks to all for your thoughts on this small problem! I now have some ideas to address it. Thus far, I've tried Ren's idea of carefully washing the inside of the Climateline hose end that attaches to the mask elbow with warm water and detergent, then carefully drying it. I was careful to avoid getting any water around or past the orange sensor. The washing did make a difference; the hose again grabs the elbow pretty firmly.

if sleep om my left side facing machine, the weight of the hose as dangle down can pull the hose off
but it does not come off when sleep on my right side facing the other way

also make sure the swivel grey piece which attach to the elbow is not missing or stuck in the other hose

I wash the climateline and other hoses in hot soapy water and hook to kitchen hot water tap to flush and rinse out and hang to dry a day or two
I do have spares but don,t like throw the old one if can be used
