Rain out is when the air is cool and condensation forms in your tubing. It eventually reaches your face. Pain in the butt!
I had that issue the night of my titration study. I thought the ceiling was leaking. I also had an issue the first night I was home even with my humidifier on a low setting. They gave me a tube insulator and the problem went away. It was something like $10 and went right on. I didn't think it had anything to do with the height of the machine, but of the difference of temp between the inside and outside. People that run ceiling fans especially have problems with condensation.
