Well then, I'll bite...
Honestly, I've been in West Virginia a lot, my father was from there and not too far from Charleston. I also went to UK in Lexington, KY and the climate there is not so different from Charleston, it's just the other side of the hills. I've never seen or heard of the kind of humidity you're describing that would wet equipment while in use.
Just for the fun of it, I looked up the average humidity readings for Charleston, Lexington, and where I live now in Michigan. The average readings are 70%, 79%, and 71% respectively for the summer months. So Charleston is not really different based on recorded averages than where I live in Michigan.
Did you leave the equipment out over night or something?
I have my electronics, Blu-ray player, media player, and AVR, mounted in a 6U portable rack case. The projector is set up on a Visual Apex Portable Projector Stand.
The heat generated when the units are powered on generally keep them dry if there is any noticeable humidity condensation. All of the equipment is set up open air. Heck, we've set up the projector and screen on the pond here, in the snow, and had movies while we ice skate and its not a problem.
So maybe you can give some more detail as to how you're using your stuff. Maybe you need to build an enclosed area or something.
