Refridgerator quit & A/C leaked water

Hi folks, I just finished my first trip in the FR3 30ds and had a couple of problems and was wondering if anyone else has had the same thing happen. First of all the fridge quit working no matter if it was on gas or electric, and the a/c starting to leak water in a rain storm? Other than that we enjoyed our trip.

Oh boy. We leave on our 1st trip in 4 weeks with our 15 FR3 30DS. Still to cold around here to test fire the fridge or AC unit..

I'm on my first long trip and have yet to experience any serious issues. I turned the fridge on a week ago and its been fine both on propane when we're moving and on the plug in the campgrounds. From Chicago to Florida I had the furnace running on a 30 degree night and now the AC has been on for four days. A big Florida thunderstorm just passed through and I can't find any leaks even though it rained sideways for a while. In an earlier storm I found that the slide awnings trap water so make sure your windows and hatches are closed when you retract and it rolls off. Some water was on top of the sofa slide and I got a few drops in the inside when I started driving. Not enough to hurt anything but it took a minute to figure out. Almost two thousand miles now and I'm getting just under 8-1/2 MPG, no toad but always either into or across from the wind.

Hi folks, just a quick update. The a/c leak must have been condensation because we had a really bad storm yesterday and no leak. The manual says that if you are in high humidity to run the blower on high and we had ours on auto which was running on low due to the overcast & rain. Lesson learned I guess. I take the girl in tomorrow to get the fridge checked out, hope it easily repaired am ready to take another trip.

Hi folks, I have had a issue with the a/c leaking during a rainstorm only if it is running. If it is parked and the a/c is turned off no leak, it can rain all day no leak if its turned on then it will leak. I have looked at my unit through the upstairs window and the unit looks like it is tilted toward the front, is the normal or maybe why mine leaks ?
