Water Leak

We have an 08 Monaco Safari Simba, 34 ft. Class A. For 2 yrs. I have tried to get a leak fixed near the passenger foot area! This leaks from hard rain and have also had it leak while no rain but running AC during high humidity. I have had the passenger window pulled, the windshield re-caulked, the awning pulled and still no luck! Any suggestions?

Have you checked the ac discharge line to be sure it is not clogged? That sounds suspiciously like a clogged AC discharge tube.

If the A/C-vent system is on "normal" it gets air from outside the MH which includes rain. Then with the A/C drain being plugged, it comes inside. "Max" A/C should get rid of the rain. A/C condensation needs to have the "drain" cleared which of course will eliminate the rain as well..

Fresh air for AC usually is pulled from outside somewhere under the windshield usually in a secondary cowl box. If so, the water can enter through there too and drain through AC condensate tube to outside. Still sounds like an AC tube drain is clogged. Sometimes they can be cleared with compressed air but often leaves and debris are inside the AC condenser. If so, the condenser needs cleaning manually and it's best to disassemble.
Some report that Lysol in spray will help eliminate odor from the condenser.

My Newmar Bay Star gasser that has an Evans Tempcon a/c unit, spits water through a vent at the passenger's feet when run on normal A/C. Air coming through grill is forced into unit which pushes water through rather than down the drain. Running on max stops this. I also have devised a way to divert air from blowing directly into unit so I can run on normal and get fresh air in. If your unit has an open grill, this might be part of your problem.

water leak

Thank you, gentlemen, for all your advice. I will have the AC line checked. With the rain, though, that leaks in when we are parked and not running. In other words, rain comes in when the A/C is off. Thanks again,
Bob
