Pex sweating problem 2014 HW27KS

I know the filter location has been discussed before. Not a great idea to put it in a cabinet so close to all the electric. Today we found the pex lines running to it sweating. It's 62F here. However, the cabinet is to the right of the fridge & above to converter. Is the heat from these units causing the sweating? What can be done to stop this? Wrap the pex?

Hum, mine have never sweated and I have camped in all sorts of temperatures. That cabinet never seems to be any hotter or colder than normal either but then the converter does not run too often. I have noticed the counter top will get warm if the converter does run alot (like the time I did not realize that the fridge was left on dc oops). You sure it is not leaking at a filter connection and getting the line wet?

If you're sure it's not leaking, I'd just get some of the sponge pipe insulation and cover the pipe(s).

Mine was leaking at the filter fitting on the inlet side. Just have to tighten the fitting.

All the more reason to remove the filter altogether and have one outside instead.

I am going to remove the filter setup. I already use an outside filter.
I couldn't find any leaks.
