A/C leaking FR3

Anyone here have issues with A/C leaking in the MH....had it checked out 3 weeks ago, and they said that they ran it all day and it didn't leak.....I run it for 4 hours and I have a flood....how do you add a video?

Clean the ac filter, then report back to us if it is still leaking

Yep. Most likely 'sucking' in condensation. I always keep the filter clean and run on medium to prevent this.

Cleaned the filter before we started it up.....ran it at 74 on Medium.....leaked 15 minutes again after I started it up..

Have you checked to make sure your drain holes are not clogged and causing the water to drain into the camper instead of off the roof?

Mmm. Perhaps condensation coming back in from under the seal? Take off ceiling cover and give all 4 bolts a full turn or 2. I did this as well

Could also be cracked or damaged styrofoam 'drainpan'?

If you are referring to it leaking when it's not raining, here is a post from the FRS Face Book page. Great Page and info!

For those of you with an FR3, any model, that have a problem with the AC unit dripping water... I sent an email to Attwood/Dometic AC folks and this is what I got back one hour. Send an email to their support Center, from their web site, and ask for part # 3315930.010. It is a new inside cover and filter that will stop the leaking and make the air much colder. I sent that email today, and when I responded to say thanks, I was told the parts would be sent to my house on Monday. Just tell them what yo have and that it drips, and you can also get one or 2 sent out to you. There will be an additional part that they will send out to cover up the screws, in about 4 weeks they said. Some folks got those replaced at the FROG rally in Goshen this week. I found out about this too late for the techs to do it. Good Luck...
