    PLEASE call a licensed contractor to do this for you. Incorrect venting or wiring can literally kill you. This is NOT a DIY project.

    It's fine. The switch is an aftermarket accessory that can be wired several different ways. As long as the compressor stops on a trip you're ok.

    You should call for service on it, it's not normal for water to gather in that hose. A service technician can find and correct the actual problem, without having it repaired it will happen again.
