Exclamation Camp Site Help / info needed reference AirCon

No wifi so had to leave site to get on net

New evergreen ascend 192RB and first time running AC. New to TT as it is, after about 15 minutes I noticed water dripping at the back outside right corner of the TT.

Water is not running down the TT wall but seems to be inside the trim on the corner. Picked up the ladder and going to head back to CG to look and see whats going on up top.

I'm thinking water pooling up and getting into trim then running down trailer in the trim. Is this normal? Should there be a drainage hose from the AC or does it just run off on the roof?

Please give some feed back, going to stick around here for a few and see what you all have to say.

THX

My Monaco DP does the same thing, AC condensation. Our last DP was a bus conversion with Coleman AC units on the roof and it did the same thing. I think your fine if it is just water running from the roof.

Good Luck and Welcome, wish I was sitting in a campsite but a couple more weeks before our next outing.

In most roof top AC units, the condensate drain runs on to the roof, and then drains off the edge of the roof. It may appear to be coming from inside a trim strip but only a visual check of the roof will tell you for sure.

Yes, A/C drains on the roof and will run to lowest part of TT and then down the side of camper.

Ditto. You might want to put a bit of calk in the right places to direct it *after* it dries. ;-)

Yep- Out of the a/c unit,onto the roof, down to the rain gutter, and out the lowest corner or corners. You should have little rain gutter extensions on each corner, i added longer ones to keep it off the side of the trailer.

That's what it was. Water had been channeled over and rolled over the trim. Once in the trim it road down the rest of the way. A little silicone added to the edge of the trim helped it stay on the outside roll on down.

Afterwards I set back with the DW under the awning drinking sweet tea, looking at the lake and thinking this is the life!

Hmmm, well you'll see. After all RVing is an adventure.
