You said "roof". Did you mean inside on the "ceiling". If so, then yes, you need to go shopping TODAY for dehumidifier. Mold will be your next problem. Good luck!

Both my front and rear AC's have drains rely on small diameter clear tubing to drain the water. About every 2-3 years they will plug up and the AC's will drip. There is a connection that is accessible from inside, I use compressed air to blow it out.

If you take the inside cover down and look up into the AC you should not see daylight. If you do you will have condensation. Seal all daylight areas.

Sounds like you need to get a new gasket on the unit.

Mine each time was clogged drain lines. I would vacuum off the coils from inside and use a dryer vent brush to slide under both sides of the unit on the roof to clear the debris. It was happening too frequently so I removed the cover and drilled out the drain holes making them much larger. Just be careful drilling its close quarters.

Take your cover off on the inside. There is a piece of cardboard wrapped in an aluminum foil type of material. Make sure this is pushed into the slot, I taped mine in the hole with aluminum hvac tape. It could be the drain but I would check the flap from the inside first. My inside cover had 5 screws, should have had 6 but one was not in there. You will need to use a small screw driver or knife to get the plugs out of the screw holes to access the screws.
