Condensation/Egg Sweating

So far this summer in Atlanta it has been extremely hot and rainy.  It literally rains every day.   I am having an issue with condensation/sweat forming on my egg under the cover (BGE brand cover with vents).  This is causing unsightly/damaging rust to from on my bands/hardware.  Any one have any ideas/suggestions on preventing this. This is the 1st time I have ever experienced this. I have had the egg for several years.  This is my first full summer in Atlanta (july on last year), and first with the BGE brand cover. A lot of variables (weather, location, type of cover) have changed and i am not sure exactly which one is the culprit.  Has anyone experienced this? I may have to go back to my cheap Weber cover during the summer. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm on the coast in Gulf Breeze, FL. No cover on my XL table a quarter mile from the salt water and have no rust after 18 months. We are a solid foot and a half over our normal rainfall to date this year also. And we are one of the wetest cities in America..

    For those who don't know Gulf Breeze is a tiny peninsula between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach.

    Remove the cover. Don't use it.
