Yes, you can set it on either auto mode or manual mode

Auto mode: Based on your selected air temperature, Climate
Control automatically adjusts the humidifier output to maintain a constant,
comfortable humidity level of 80% relative humidity while protecting against
rainout. In Auto mode the default air temperature is set to 80°F (27°C)

Manual mode: Air temperature and humidity can be
set independently, providing you greater flexibility but without
the rainout protection guaranteed in Auto mode. In this mode,
air temperature (61–86°F (16–30°C)) and humidity level (0–6)
can be set independently. If rainout occurs, either increase air
temperature or decrease the humidity setting.

Yes, if you have the heated hose, when humidifier is in Manual mode, both water tank heat setting and hose temperature setting can be adjusted separately. So hose temperature can be turned up to max to reduce rainout. But I think if tank heater turned too high can get rainout even if hose temperature is max (86 degF).
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
