Angry A/C inside condensation

Hello everyone- I am new to this discussion..
We have taken our 2004 Cardinal rear kitchen model into the shop for about the 6th time now for condensation. Hopefully this time it will be repaired... After I have screemed enough to them. Unit never cooled off in the bedroom nor stopped dripping in the kitchen area off the unit inside. After going up to the shop every day this time and checking this time. Maybe it will be fixed this time. It is still there. Walked inside of her the other day and she was cool in the bedroom. But NOT taking her off the lot yet. Any one having the same problem with there units?

Not a major problem here, but I also see condensation when the DW leaves the door open and I am away during high humidity.

If you can find out what they do please let us know.

Ditto to what Mike said. I have found that one guaranteed way to create the problem is to crack a window and turn on the bathroom exhaust fan while the A/C is running. (Smokers will understand the logic of doing so. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work. ) When cooking, it seems to be OK to crack the kitchen window and turn on the exhaust fan in the hood. In that case the outside air is coming in and then going right back out, without mingling overly much with the air in the trailer.

remove the intake grill
and look staright up
see all the them air leaks (light)
tape em up with good alum backed ductwork tape

2nd remove al lyour celing vent register thingies
not just the out side part, unscrew the whole deal
then notice how the duct in the cieling is just CUT out hahazardly
and allows cold air to go to the attic space and not in the coach

3rd seal up all them leaks at the duct and the cutout with same sticky back alum ductwork tape roll costs about 27 buckaroos at homie depot or lowes it aint cheap but works very well
do ALL teh ducts. also fix the little holesin teh tops of the duct wher they drilled through to the top side and left little drill bit holes
5 put it all back together
turn a/c to ON and adjust thermo to the temp you desire
it wil cyclye the compressor onand off as needed and keep the condensor from freezing plus it will remove the hmidty from the coach and air and will start to dry things out
it is normal if the humidity is way up there and your in and out alot and its HOT out to get some wet stuff around the vent openings

aslo seal any air leaks in the coach like around gas lines, slides , winders
wire chases, look under your sink where the wires drop down to run insed the frame, bet you see LIGHT
hope it helps
