Water dripping from ac on floor

Hey guys. Posting is really new to me, so bare with me. I have a Shamrock camper. This is the second time camping with it. I turned the ac on this morning for almost an hour. We were sitting down to eat breakfast and all of a sudden a steam of water came out of the ac. It finally got down to a drip. Can anyone tell why this happened and what I need to do to fix it. I took the filter off. The water is coming from the left and right side. Not out of the middle which is where the air comes from. Any help would be appreciated. And thanks.

Clearly the condensate drain is plugged. Unfortunately, I've only needed to run my AC once (when I bought the trailer to make sure it worked), so I can't tell you anything about where it is or how it works. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

I'd start by pulling off the inside cover and seeing what I could see.

pull the outside cover off and see if there are leaves or any other debris in the unit area. Clean it all out.

We had the issue on our Silverback. In addition to checking the drain,we found the factory did a very poor job of sealing the edges of the AC (what else is new?). Our dealer re sealed the edges and no more indoor showers.

Water dripping from ac on floor

We had the exact same problem with ours on the second trip. It turned out the condenser had debris inside the lines instead of fixing the ac forest river replaced it.
