Holiday Rambler leak in Air Conditioner

Help! We are new at this. Bought used 2002-3 Holiday rambler in July. In Texas we have not had any rain. Well it rained and when we took our Motor Home out water started to come out of the air conditioner over our bed. I took off the air cover but I cannot see how water could get in through the air conditioner. Can someone help?

There are four bolts that go through to the roof portion of the AC. Tighten these bolts and that will usually fix the problem. The AC has a foam seal between the AC and roof. as you drive down the road the foam seal gets compressed and can leak. To get to these bolts you remove the interior AC trim over the bed.

It is quite likely that the leak is somewhere else and the water just ran along the ceiling to the a/c opening. You need to inspect all roof seams and openings and touch up caulk where needed. The marker lights on the roof are one common source of leaks. Bathroom skylight is another.

Check the rear cap seal across the roof too. Dicor self leveling sealant works great to reseal the roof. About $8.50 a tube at any camping supply store.

Check the condensation pan in the AC. Sometimes the little weep hole get's plugged with debris, and won't be apparent till the MH is moved.
