Up on the roof, take iff the AC cover .. There should be about. 1/4” hole in all 4 corners..

Thay may be hard to find, but there are 4.

This may not be your problem, but is something easy to look at ..

Once you take the four screws out that hold the shroud on, remove the shroud. You will see a metal tray with rounded edges that everything is sitting in, that is where the whole should be but in all four corners.

The weep holes are in the drip pan that is UNDER the EVAP Coil

EVAP COil is in a SEALED compartment Under the roof shroud
You HAVE to OPEN that sealed compartment to access the evap coil drip pan and might have to shift evap coil a bit to get to drain holes to clear them
(cut the tape..remove screws, remove cover. Seal back up after cleaning drip pan AND EVAP Coil)



Look at diagram posted
Evaporator Drain Pan, Evaporator, Room Air Fan.....UNDER the SEALED Cover

(Motor, Condenser, Condenser Blower etc UNDER the roof shroud)


Is it time for your medication or mine?

If I missed it, sorry, but I didn't see where anyone asked when this was happening. If it's when rain is falling it's the A/C to roof gasket. If it's not it's a clogged drain hole or blockage where the condensed water vapor runs off the evaporator and out to the drain holes.

We had a Jayco with a A/C that leaked inside as well, it was the bolts holding it that were loose and did not compress the gasket at all. How the A/C unit stayed on the trailer going down the Hwy was a miracle.

Hi all,
well I have done everything short of calling the RV place to come out. I have been on roof several times cleaned it out and think I got the drain holes cleared.
It is still leaking in the liv room but now is mostly just when I turn it off...it is just weird I have checked the bolts so I just do not know...thanks everyone for your help!

ok after following that link which I did not see until after my first reply...it says to remove that evaporator cover which I was tempted to do each time but was afraid of shock...so I may get up there again. it has a warning on unit that even if turned off you can still be shocked...I assume unplugging the whole RV from elec would avoid this from happening...it is a bit difficult doing this with only one person as it might be helpful to have it turned on once the shroud is off and evaporator cover off to see where the water is coming out...I do not want to have it running while I take the shroud off...hum challenging![emoticon]

oh yes and it has nothing to do with the rain
