Water drip from roof air to cabin

it just dawned on me this morning that i forgot to ask a question about condensation forming in the cabin directly below the ac. This only happened once on a hot humid day last september, and never happened again later. I wouldn't have noticed except it dripped on my head. Is this normal on really humid days?

Thanks

The condensate should be expelled to the outside however is it was cold on the interior of the cabin and you had a quick warm out inside the cold surfaces could condense the humid air inside. My un-insulated metal barn rains inside with this type condition.

My old TT AC With just plastic cover/vents would rain from condensation . It was old R22 cold as check air came out of it.
Its not an excuse to never remove cover and clean coils ,leaves insects and mud from the AC. Just give it all look over.
If there is a drain hose to the ground. The AC coil drain hoses at work I put a shop vac to outlets when they are running hard . It sucks slime and gunk out . We pay for HV/AC preventive maintaince . Every company starts a downhill slide after a couple years.

If under normal operation you have condensate running off your roof I would not suspect a stopped op drain and if it was just a one time occurrence I would just wight it off as that, a one time event probably caused by condensation on surfaces before the evaporator coil. Really humid days and open the door once has a big impact on the inside air humidity level. Happy camping stay dry. Richard
