Water leaking from Air Conditioner

2018 3011DS. Heavy rain - water is leaking from the AC/heat pump. Where do I plug this leak? Can I do it from inside? Looks like it will rain for a couple more days.
Thanks in advance.
Dave Allen

Well Psadave46 your post does not contain much info (clues) such as A/C model and where it is leaking from so all I can do is guess that you have the usual Atwood AirCommand AC1511 Heat Pump issue.
If that is the case I thought I had the same problem. However, it is a design issue and it is being addressed by Dometic. So for now, clean the filter and the “leak” will stop for a few days. More info is available here: AirCommand Water Penetration

There is a gasket between the AC unit and the roof. Sometimes just tightening it up solves the issue. You do not want to over tighten it. Sometimes that gasket needs to be replace as it gets completely compressed.

Thanks to all - issue resolved

I removed the inside grill and tightened the four mounting bolts. I only tightened them a little.
Thanks again,
Dave

That might be the fix. We will hope so.
