Agilent 1100 G1316A column compartment leaks when thermostatted at 10C

I have an old Agilent 1100 G1316A column compartment, and I’m trying to run an LC method with column temp at 10C.  Unfortunately, due to poor environmental controls in the lab (it’s always hot) the LC errors out due to condensation leaking into one of the other LC components.  I have made sure the condensate waste lines are properly plumbed, and have added absorbent towels, but the LC still errors due to leaks.  Is there some other type of absorbent insulation I can use for the column compartment?  Does Agilent sell a column compartment insulator?
