Dometic 13.5 ac leaking water

So last night around 1 am or so i woke up to wster coming from our front ac on a HG 356qb. The water was dripping out of the control knobs and intake.

I turned the system off and immediatly pulled the lower end. I observed no signs of icing on the coils.

Could my drip pan be causing this. It was quit a bit of water..

This can happen when the condensation water isn't getting out of the a/c at all or quickly enough. If it were me I would go up on my roof, remove the a/c cover, run the A/c and observe. Locate where the condensate should be coming out to make sure there are no obstructions, both where the condensate exits the a/c as well as where it exits the pan.

There should be a drain hole or tube from the indoor coil to the outside tray if this becomes plugged water will build up inside and it has to go somewhere. go up on the roof pull the cover and find the drain coming from the indoor coil and clean it out.

It could also be the gasket between the AC unit and the roof. Sometimes these just need to be tightened up. You should not over tighten them however. If you need a new gasket, I have one I will give you.

I'd check the gasket bolts first. They're easy to check and if they're a little loose it's an easy fix.

45 in lbs is only about 4 ft lbs, so not much torque. The real key is to evenly tighten the bolts. Just screw them in until they touch the surface and then cross tighten them until they're at the proper torque.
