We haven't experienced any leaks in our coach up to now. We have been sitting in a steady rain for about 36 hours and it was getting humid in the coach. We turned on the A/C and water started dripping out of the vent closest to the intake. The compressor hadn't had time to freeze up so I know it wasn't that. I'm just wondering if turning on the compressor could somehow have drawn water into the ducting from the roof, or, if there is any explanation for the drip. Since we turned off the compressor, the dripping stopped.

Take a look at the hold down bolts and make sure they are tight. You can get to two of them by removing the filter plate. The other two require removing the inside cover.

Do not overtighten the mounting bolts. I had vibration noise problems and overtightened mine slightly warping the A/C base plate. ( It is thin.) This caused a leak allowing out side air into the inside return air, something you don't want. I had to take outside cover off and seal openings with foil tape.
