If it's like a car, you can get some bacteria build up in the unit from the standing water in the venting system. I don't know if you have a "fan only" option on the unit like a car or not, but if that's the case, make sure to run the fan only after the air before you shut it off. By doing that, it will dry out the water vapor and prevent the water condensation issue.
