Due to  the fact of no rain/moisture, I am thinking it can't be the caps
leaking  moisture in the tubes, so I am thinking it must be the  Balun.
I believe that if the problem was with the balun, the SWR would be an issue  
on all bands.  Having messed with with KLMs and specifically the KT34XA for  
years, my guess is one or both of the DRIVEN elements has a problem...shorted  
cap tube ( dust, dirt, spider web, piece of metal) or something not making  
Did the SWR on 20 change or has it always been 1:6?
