A/C Condensation? 2014 3010DS

We went camping this past weekend in Three Rivers, a family Sequoia trip. I had the a/c set to 70 degrees and the fan was set to auto. I noticed water dripping from the cabinets over the dinette area. There were drops falling from two separate spots. I checked the interior of the cabinet and they were dry. I'm assuming that the humidity, combined with the kids constantly opening the door, caused heavy condensation..I switched the fan to high instead of auto and it seemed to fix the problem. Any advice or if anyone has experienced this please let me know..

Thank you

RSM, we experienced the condensation along the ceiling duct path on a recent trip to the coast. Opening the AC dump vent on the unit took most of the flow out of the ducts and stopped yhe ceiling drips. There may be other/better methods out there, but this worked for us. We still stayed cool.

Hey, we just got MH and I don't know what a dump vent is or where it is? Is it on the roof? Thanks.

Sorry 'bout that Nancy. I dont know what it is called so I named it by what it does. Standing directly under the unit looking up there is a grill that is closed. See if there is a couple of tabs that you can grab and slide the plastic plate under the grill one way or another to open this to allow direct air flow straight down on you.

Quick cool dump is the appropriate name.

The condensate forms at the cooling coil on the roof inside the AC enclosure and should drain onto the roof and not enter inside your RV. You may want to check the drain to make sure it is not plugged.
