HW296 AC drain?

First time running the A/C, which worked great! Throughout the humid afternoon, I noticed the removed water being sprayed out the top. However, later in the day, some of the water was dripping from the inside unit, making a puddle on the floor. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, how can I avoid the inside dripping? Thank you in advance!

If it's humid occasionally inside will drip from condensation.

I have had that happen once or twice on very humid conditions. Not sure there is anything you can do. Did learn my lesson not to leave the pop all day with the ac on high. Came back to the unit making a loud noise. It froze up. 95 degrees out. Just glad we came back when we did. It thawed abs was fine after that. Sorry that was of topic, lol

Gee we have never had the ac drip inside the camper, and we camp all the time on very humid weather and leave the ac on all the time. We always get a steady drip of condensate running over the outside of the tent end. How old is your camper? Has the gasket seal between the ac and the roof been checked?

It is a 2012, which had not previously been used much. I did see most of the water exiting from the top, it was just later in the day that the dripping started. I will take a look at the seal, so thank you!

I have not experienced that yet myself but can report back after my July 4th vacation. It is usually quite hot and humid and we run the A/C most days.

My guess is that the internal parts got cool and the inside humid air condensed a bit to cause the drips. Much like a glass of ice water. It probably is not a leak.

Vin.

Mine seemed like it was condensation dripping. Like the op, late in the day after running all day. Mine is a 2014. The freeze issue was on our old 2004.

Every time we are at Myrtle Beach in the heat of the summer.... the AC vents and around the main unit drip condensation onto the floor. during the heat of the day.
