Would be helpful if we know what kind of 'stuff' you have 😉.

Keep in mind that both Jupiter and Saturn will be very low above the horizon from the northern hemisphere this year and the next few years. Not a good time for these planets, unfortunately.

Last night I foind seeing wasn’t good and not much detail on Jupiter and Saturn and Mars was poor. A couple of weeks ago seeing was good and could see plenty of detail. 

Seeing does vary quite a bit from night to night and nights of good seeing are rare so enjoy them when they do come around.

I have a edge 8hd and I was using the 40mm that came with it and my delos 10mm.  Also I left the scope for about 2hrs and when I came back it was soaked from the dew.  I have a shield. Rookie mistake.  Does the stock focused suck?

Most likely seeing. With the 10 mm, the magnification is around 200x. That's ok on a good night but most of the time it's just too much. Not much you can do about it. Some nights are better than others, so keep on trying. For really a good view of the gas giants you'll have to wait a few years, when they're much better placed.
