Condensation is from warm air meeting cold, just like in rain storms

Humidity condenses on the evaporator, and drips outside onto the roof. You wouldn't want it to drip inside.

I am pretty sure ALL of these are hermetically sealed. The checking the "freon" level means tapping into the system...or using superheat to check it... If you can someone smart enough to do that. The condensation is normal and is removed on the evaporator from the air in your trailer. Camp on.

Ah thank you for the correction.
The trailer is an 2006 I figure the AC had not been serviced.
A plugged filter will cause low or no air flow.
Low Freon will cause less than optimal cooling and over work the unit.
Also if the thermometer was set below 70F?

Temp was 75 'ish. Unit was serviced late last year.

True, just OP only mentioned condensation question though.

You can't check superheat unless you know what the low side refrigerant pressure is. While I've never been into ours I don't know, but I would think that there are refrigerant taps on it. But this does no good to the regular joe without a set of gauges. Condensation running off the trailer is all normal and will vary based on humidity. I see no reason to worry to the op! If it's cooling down your rig and you have condensation running off the roof all is good!

Oooppss. Sorry I wasn't thinking correctly. No service ports.
