Roof air leaks water on to the master bed.

We have a 2000 CC Intrigue. we just spent a week in West Yellowstone and were treated to a couple nights of great thunder storms and very hard rain...
The rear air conditioner started leaking a small amount of water (one drip every 15 seconds). We called our normal repair/maintenance facility and they told us that they have never seen a CC Intrigue with that issue. These folks are highly respected in the industry so I checked with a very large RV Center in the area and was told that the gaskets under the air conditioner needed to be replaced periodically and that would solve the issue. I've also read on this site that the gaskets need to be replaced every so often.
Are there any Intrigue owners that can shed some light on this issue???

have friends that have a 2000 intrigue they bought new. Have never replaced gaskets, been in some seriously heavy thunder showers and never had an issue. they just keep the roof clean and make sure all the seals on the roof thru fittings and drip rail are good.

Have you pulled the cover on the inside and checked the bolts that hold the AC down. On both of my AC all 4 bolts that hold it down had unscrewed about 1/2", I was shocked.

First try tightening the screws that hold the AC down. If that does not work, buy a new gasket for cheap and with a friend helping lift the AC unit up replace the gasket and tighten the bolts down again to the proper specs.

Another question comes to mind. Where you running the AC? If you were and did not have the fan running the moisture will condense out and drip out of the vent. We have had no leagage issues other than that.

My forward AC has leaked rainwater. Tightened the nuts on the four bolts and fixed the problem.

No new gaskets yet.

Do not over tighten the bolts. The gasket is only meant to crush 1/2 the original thickness. Try snugging up the bolts a little first. If no success, replace the gasket.

If it drips without rain, the drain plan may be plugged or cracked.

I don't have a CC but my rear a/c has done the same thing. Removed the screws from the inside cover and sung the hold down bolts and no more drips. This was four years ago and still no problems. I'm sure my gaskets are 20 years old.

X's 2.

Unless the AC was removed for some reason and the gasket damaged - then snug them bolts up. Key word, yep, snug.

Best of luck,
