Okay, so it IS draining onto the roof. I took off the cover and left it running for over an hour. The weather (22C and 25C are 72F and 77F, respectively):




The water - hard to see but there's a thin line roughly in the centre of the photo.




There was a little dirt under there but not too much. I blew it out with compressed air.



No sign of water inside.

Thanks for the tips, folks.

That was my issue. Pull the cover off the ceiling and check the tightness on the flange screws. One corner of mine wasn't as tight as the others and it leaked. Normally wouldn't have been a problem except for the humidity. Water wasn't draining as quickly as it was being produced. The fan kept most of it away from the gasket. When it stopped, water came in through the corner of the flange that wasn't tight.

When we level up at a camp spot, from front to rear, we leave the front just a little bit higher. Condensate always drips in the rear, left or right, depending on how close we are leveled left to right. As said previously, relative humidity has a lot to do with it. Are you out west?

We are located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - roughly the same latitude as Philly. So definitely east. It often gets a lot more humid here... yesterday's 57% wasn't bad.

Now that I'm reading my own post, it came to me that our roof is not flat; it runs from high up front to lower in the rear. So my worldly advice may mean nothing...
