This past weekend while camping and having the A/C running (set @ 74 deg.) the interior shroud started dripping water....Removed the shroud and cleaned the filter and a couple hours later moisture was gone. Does anyone know if this was the correct fix or if there is something more I should be checking out? It did work fine the rest of the weekend but it has me wondering....first time that ever happened.

Perhaps the inside air had a lot of humidity and collected on the cooling unit. After awhile the inside air was drier and so no more water was collected to drip down.

I think you're right Ray...Talked to an HVAC buddy of mine at work today and he said the same thing...we did have a lot of going in and out for a while and it was 90+ deg. with a ton of humidity so that makes sence....Thanks for the reply!

Another possibility is the drain for the evaporator coil drain pan.

These will plug up with alge and such at times. When this happens the pan will fill up and over flow.

To clean this though you will need to remove the shroud. (Outside) Some are easy to find once the shroud is removed. Some a harder.

Some you need to remove the sheet metal cover over the evaporator coils as well to actually FIND the drain to clear it.

Thanks Don; I'll check that this A.M. Good to know there was another possibility that could have contributed to the problem.....Thanks again!

I have had some luck tightening the four bolts that press the unit to the roof - they loosen up over time. The bolts are usually accessible from the inside of the coach.
