Troubleshooting leaking a/c unit

We are having an issue w out a/c leaking a bunch of water out. Anyone have a similar issue?

Trying to figure out what I should be troubleshooting.

I have a 2014 Roo- 233s. I am sure the humidity in Florida is contributing but it should not be leaking as much as it is (filled a bucket up over the weekend).

Any help/tips would greatly be appreciated!

Are you saying the water from the AC is leaking into the trailer?

You might want to check the gasket and make sure it is tight. You do not want to over tighten it, but it needs to be snug. These get loose over time. Take the cover off and you will see 4 bolts, one in each corner. Check and make sure they are tight.

Must be a 2014 thing. My 2104S had the same AC and same issue when the humidity was high. Found two problems. First, the drains on top were somewhat restricted / plugged. That allowed water to pool around the AC unit and not run off. Second, the opening in the roof was cut slightly too much on one corner allowing water to seep in.

It was really only noticeable when the AC shut off. Looks as if the fan on top was keeping the water away from the opening until it shut off. At that point, water rushed up against the AC until it drained some.

I pulled the inside cover, slightly tightened the bolts on that corner and opened up the drains a little. Traded it in right after that and never did see if it fixed the issue or not. It only happened on two trips though in 2.5 years, both when it was extremely humid.

I will definitely have a look at your recommendations - thx for the info

Did you trade in for another hybrid? I have definitely thought about trading this one in on a newer model - love the hybrid but this unit has been a challenge

No, mine was a Mini Lite about the same size as yours. I went to a little bit bigger trailer as we started taking more people with us. We enjoyed it while we had it though.

Not sure this is your problem, but I had a leaking AC for two years. Did all the things mentioned in other posts to no avail. Then one day I switched my fan from hi to low and the leaked stopped. Seems in hi humidity situations the holding pan filled to fast and overdeveloped flowed in to the RV. On low it had time to drain out. Just what happened to me.

I'd go up top, pull the cover, and inspect the drain hole(s) through the pan. Over time, bugs and tree litter can clog the drain causing the pan to overflow into the camper. All of the condensed water should drain onto the roof and run off somewhere. If the drain is clogged, or slow, then the water can overflow the pan which is very shallow.
