Roof A/C leaking

I've got a question, 86 sports coach pathfinder, when running my A/C on 2 separate occasions I have had it all the sudden start dripping water into my RV. It is not the gasket, I have checked, and if I shut it off it starts pouring a steady stream in, this has happened 2 different times but I had ran it a few times in between with no problems, when it does this, it is also not cooling, has anyone had this experience before? Any help is appreciated

There is a drain up on the roof that is clogged. the condensation is building up instead of draining on the roof. http://bryantrv.com/roofacleaks.html

Another possibility is that something is malfunctioning causing the coil to freeze up. When they do that, the ice forms a solid mass on the coil, stopping most if not all of the air flow through it, and after shutting it off the ice melts. If the drain is marginal or plugged, the water overflows into the coach. After that, it will work fine for a while until the cycle repeats itself and freezes it up again. I'm not an AC tech, but have worked on wall units that did the same thing in a motel. Sometimes just a good cleaning for better air flow through the unit will stop the problem.

It may be as 92 said and the drain up in the case is clogged up, or it can be the air filter inside needs cleaning. When that filter gets too restricted, the pressure of the fan keeps the condensate form draining on some unit. Then, something has to give.
