Sleeping in new to me Monaco Knight for the first time

Got pretty much everything moved over. I am down at Lazdays in FL. They have been so wonderful to work with. This new coach is amazing. Get to take her out for a long drive. Can't wait.

That first night on the road in your new home is pretty special. My wife was initially very cool to the idea of rv'ing but the first time in the new bed after a great day and bbq chops convinced her. I know what yer thinking, we are too old for that.

Thanks everybody. It is pretty humid out tonight and I am noticing water on the AC that is dripping into the coach. I assume it is condensation but I would think that the AC would dehumidify the coach.

That water shouldn't be dripping into the coach.

You need to tell Lazy days about it.

I took my test drive today and the rain was coming down sideways I wonder if it is just rain that got in and is dripping out??

Just another thought is that it could be that the AC drain is plugged.

A/C drain is plugged or gasket is loose at the A/C unit.

So rain should not be able to come through the rooftop AC unit and into the coach. I am camping in the service bay tonight so I can make sure that I mention this to them first thing in the morning. Thanks for the help. I guess it is good that I drove through a monsoon today to find this out while I am here.

I don't care how big the monsoon is it shouldn't leak.

I think you have a problem.

Good deal. I really want to go home today but I am not leaving until they get me squared away.

Thanks again for everybody's help. This forum is such a wonderful resource.

Condensation turned out to be an insulation problem between the warm air return and where the cold air comes out. They added insulation between the two chambers and no more condensation.

11 hour drive yesterday and all in all it went very well. Even managed to back in the side driveway and did not take out the Suburban or the house!!
