The technician thinks it's very climate-dependent: he sees this when the real humdity sets in here in NC. Searching some other sites yields similar findings of moisture accumulating in the valves. I suspect SoCal is a far friendlier climate. If it happens again I'll probably just pull all the plumbing and have the CEL cancelled.
