Leaking A/C units

After having my Forest River Sierra 5th wheel for 3 years, the A/C units are leaking from the inside. Only when it turns on, and only for a few seconds. The one in the bedroom started doing it, then the one in the kitchen started. I know it's just condensation, but how do I stop it? Thank you

The first thing you may want want to try is tighten the gasket. These gaskets get flat over time. You need to remove the inside cover and you will see four bolts, one in each corner. Tighten these down snug, but do not over tighten. You can check these every few years, but at some point you will need to replace that gasket as they get too flattened out to work well.

By the way, I have a new still in the box gasket that I will give you if you need it.

Did you get the leak to stop? If not you may need to pull the cover off of the A/C unit and check the drains for stoppage. There is a styrofoam track that the water runs through off to the roof. Bugs love to make little dams in them and then the water has only one way to go, down through the unit.

That is good information, thank you.
I haven't checked it because we haven't needed the a/c.
