    TURN DOWN THE HUMIDITY!!!!!
    I have 3 bators going and all three are running high humidity. Go figure, the humidity from old Mother Nature is up around 70%. One is a still air and the other two are with fans, but still, they aren't coming down even after I wipe things out and pop the top off for a couple of minutes. I don't want to go cooling too much, so I am leaving things and letting it go for a little while that way. I hope it doesn't ruin anything. I will be very, very sad.

    How much water is in your trays? Can you soak some up with a dry sponge?

    I have no water in the two that are reading high. It was a steam 86-degrees here today and the humidity was close to the same number. Blah!
