Even putting mine in a Hotgear bag on high for 12 hours won't dry them out.
If the boots are leaking you need to take the liners out to dry them. I realize hot gear claims they can dry moisture between the shell and liner. I haven't used a hot gear bag but that claim seems unrealistic to me.  
yeah more magical thinking. Hot bags are great but the moisture has to get out and go somewhere. Requires air movement.

Consider this for taping the hot tronic cable up the back of the liner.( I have not used it though.) Teflon tape with adhesive-
5 thousandths thick, 3/4 inch wide, allegedly good -40 to 350 deg F

It wasn't the cable up the back. Duct tape held that, but the actual cover over the heating element peeled off my insole. Ordered a new one already.

 

I've been using the same boots with same bag for several seasons without this issue. I figure either my boots took on more water this week or the bag isn't getting as hot.  Gonna tape up the boots better next time out and hope the moisture stays out.

Tape idea is for the OP. he's concerned about the wire up the back. Duct tape has too much friction getting the liners in and out all the time. Yeah it works- but like WD40 ends up making a mess of things.

I think you've hit on the solution....keep from sweating.  Although the bootboard thing is interesting.  lets not jump to any conclusions about the plate screws, that would seem the lowest level of the boot.  I'd have to take mine apart to be sure, something I don;pt want to do at 11:15 pm!  I'll suggest that it is simply the logical pooling point but thats just a WAG at this point.

 

Good luck Wednesday evening and keep posting results.....of the boot experiment but race results would be OK too!

Plate screws definitely leak in the spring but non melted winter? I use to use a layer of permatex blue under the plates and on screw threads mainly to keep them from loosening and to even out contact with the plate/boot. Most plates will have some gap in places.
