Well, I'd jog on by and have a look at it, but you forgot to tell me where you are. I would have used my long-distance X-ray vision, but the Department of Energy is requiring me to get a new license 'cause I was watching while the Hawaii Democrap officials were making up fake birth certificates, and besides, I again don't know which way and how far to look ......
....Maybe you need to open the cover and look yourself?
Check the hose and its fittings, perhaps?
It shouldn't be that hard, should it?.

yes please tell us at least what state your in.
your problem is the auto drain. Its stuck or dirty or out of place depending with regulator/filter is in your unit. Carefully take it apart and clean it. its all in he bowl, (lower half).
If cleaning it won't fix it replace it. but then add another filter on your air supply at the wall.
you may have to much water and rust in your air. the dryer and cleaner your air, the longer you tip and electrode will last.
