wet air vents

When I took the air vent off the radiator it was wet inside. Does this mean the radiator isn't pitched right?

    Do you mean wet

    as in drops of water, or wet as in puddles on the floor?  If the former, no problem -- it doesn't close until steam hits it, so it's going to have some condensate in it.  If the latter, it probably isn't a pitch problem; if it's a problem at all, it may be that the vent is a bit too fast.

    Its just some

    moisture. I guess it's not a problem. Thanks.

    Any tips on preparing the boiler for the downtime during the summer?
