We replaced our air conditioner 2 yrs ago
with a new one. Recently while running
our air conditioner for about 1/2 hr i
noticed dripping water through the ceiling
filter vent. I suspect it is freezing up
and then melting the ice which is dripping
inside. is there a fix to this? Any suggestions will be helpful. Pete & Elaine in our 31
foot Minnie Winnie fulltimers.

I had the same problem this past summer and think I fixed it by tightening the screws holding the unit to the ceiling, but I'm not totally convinced just yet.

okay this will require a little work, but what the cause is there is a warm air leak into the discharge side and water is building up and the drain hole is plugged. I have the same problem, just haven't got around fixing it.

What you have to do is first remove the outside cover. Next look along the front and sides for weep holes that might be blocked. Some of the newer ones have a drain line built in. It's full of dirt. You may have to unseal the condenser cover to clean the holes, if so, then you will need aluminum tape to reseal the joints.

Right now it's to hot to work on it during the day. Waiting for cooler weather. Good luck

Jim

Pete, if your coach isn't level water maybe building up in your drip pan and getting blown into your air duct. When you remove the cover to clean other weep holes check for retained water. You can drill new holes up front of the pan just place a metal outlet cover under where you will drill to protect your roof. Like someone else said check bolts another weep holes. "007"
