Three things you might want to check:
Crappy coax....water got in at the feedpoint.
Bugs and/or water in one of the traps.  Water is a notorious culprit  in the 
A-3 traps.  Rotate the boom 90 degrees one way and then the  other...water may 
flow out.  After that, you can steam out the rest by  putting a 100 watts 
into it for a while.  You can actually watch the SWR  drop to the regular level 
as it does.
Good luck.
