OK, I took old Betsy into the DME this morning and related the information to my respiration guru there.
"Oh, you must have taken a trip and gotten water in the machine. E47 means there is moisture in the machine... it's under warranty, no problem".
Yes, I'd been on a trip. With my surge protector and other BiPap necessities.
I got a temporary machine to use (same model Remstar). All is well.
The Point Is....?
I was advised to take the water container off of the machine before traveling and to shove a paper towel into the hole where the water container plugs into the machine. Then, pack the container SEPERATE from the machine just in case.
A tiny drop of water, according to the guru, can make the Remstar go bonkers. She took the water contain apart from the machine and there on the rim of the "orifice" where the container plugs into the machine... you guessed it, a tiny bit of water.
I honestly believe that the air conditioner in the hotel caused condensation because whenever I travel I turn the a/c down as low as possible. You can hang a side of beef without fear of spoilage in my hotel room.
Campers, when you travel with a Remstar - keep the Remstar DRY in transit. I had removed all of the water from the container yet some water still got through, somehow. I learned a valuable lesson today.
