I got on the roof this morning and could not see anything that looked like it might be leaking. I also took the cover off the AC and could not see where it might be leaking. I have call FR customer support and waiting on a call back.

I don't have the same setup but I have had trouble with my return sucking the water back in the drain. When it's really humid and a lot of condensation forms in AC unit or when heavy rains hit it pulls it back in. If remove the filter the leak stops. Dealer is still trying to fix it.

I had the same issue on my 2016 Wildcat 295rsx. In a very heavy rain storm, a small amount (collected about 6-8 ounces over 8 hours) dripped thru the return air vent that's located in the ceiling (if you're facing the bedroom headboard, it's above you to the right).

I was going to take it in for warranty and called the dealer's service dept to get an appointment. The person that took my call was actually a service tech. She said they see that particular drip many times on front mounted A/C's. She said in each case they remove the A/C cover and tighten down each of those 4 bolts. It was simple to do, I did it and no leaks since.

I don't know if they loosened during travel or if the factory didn't tork down enough, but I can tell you my leaks appear to be gone. If they come back, I'm going to go up and tighten again. By the way, I'm a novice and was fearful that removing that A/C cover would be complicated. It wasn't. The hood screws are obvious and easy to remove.
