Heat Pumps leak during heavy rain?

Heavy storms coming across NVA this evening. Water is dripping through the inside cover and unto the bed and front floor. Thankfully it is manageable. Storms are dropping lots of rain here tonight.

I think I have something missing inside the heat pump covers that is suppose to prevent rain from coming into the RV. Not what that is.

Our bedroom ac leaks during heavy rain. If we run the ac on high, not auto it removes the humidity. Seems the rain causes the humidity to climb and sweat in the unit. The dry setting works also.

Hello.

You need to tighten the bolts that hold it to the roof. The rubber gasket gets compressed. I have had to do this with ours.

Both pumps do a good job keeping humidity out and the coach cool, with the exception when the temps rise near 100. I keep my settings on high during high temps.

Drain holes might be plugged??? I seem to recall an Atwood Service Campaign regarding drain hole issues and gasket replacement.

Brian if you find the info on the Atwood service bulletin, can you let us know. I wouldn't mind fixing mine myself if it is on the list.

They tell me we only had (15) that fell in the serial range...but I can't seem to find the official memo. I think they were still working on the solution steps.

Brian-are the drain holes you are referring too different than the drain holes the AC extracts the condensed water from humidity inside the RV, or are they the same drain hole? My ACs extract a lot of water keeping the rig cool during these hot and humid days we are having.

Also, could the six screws/nuts holding the pump in place be out of torque range in such a short period - less than a year? I guess it is possible, I just don't know the specifications when it comes to this.
