Hello all, just an update - thanks to all those who helped, skimmer seems to be ok now. Two things I did to make it work:

1) Adjusted the outflow so that it wasn't below the water line

2) cleaned, and cleaned, and cleaned the air tubing.

I think the real problem was the tubing clogged with salt creep. I ran some microwaved RODI water through the tubes. HAd to do it several times and may do it once more. Each time the water level in the skimmer dropped. Man, it must have been bad. Eventually I was heating a quart or two of RODI water and letting the tubes suck it through.

Thanks to everyone for your help!
