Check for a drain hose at the base of the unit
water is collected on the evaporator fins and is drained away by a hose
if there is water from the vents , that indicates that that drain system is blocked
could be grey dust and gunk or a mud wasps nest at the end of the hose

After a while ducted air condition water comes out of vents onto wall we run it at 23 or 24

The condensation drain to the outside is blocked. The user manual should contain instructions to clear this. You will have to locate the beginning of this drain inside the indoor unit and run a thick wire into it.

I moved my air conditioning unit and water poured out of it. is that normal? and how long /should I wait before plugging it up again

This is fairly normal. What happened is that the unit was not in the window correctly and/or the drain hole(s) is(are) blocked. When the unit is installed, it should be tilted slightly away from the house. If it isn't shim it so it is. also, there should be holes on the bottom of it for the water to drain out. make sure they are not blocked. You do not have to wait to plug it in unless you had it turned in a direction other than right side up for a period of time.

I'm getting condensation leakage from the vents in the roof. This is on a ducted system, and it's leaking from the two vents closest to the main blower unit up in the ceiling. It's very high humidity here...

Two things may need to be done here, one is to insulate the vents in the high humidity/temperature area to isolate them from these high conditions. The second would to install a drain pan under the system to catch any condensation and drain it away.

Flashing code 90 .

The 90 error code is caused by two conditions:

1) the unit is under heating the water (not hitting the set temperature)
2) the fan is encountering resistance to air flow, which causes it to over correct

The most common causes for this conditions are:
1) insufficient BTU supplied to the unit
2) clogged fan motor or vent
3) insufficient makeup air
4) improperly installed exhaust vent

Does anyone know if a Duo Therm model 620515.331c is ducted or not???

The upper unit itself is not ducted. They are all the same. The ducting is done with the lower unit or "Ceiling Pack" of the air conditioner. You need to see your RV is ducted, ie...vents in the ceiling that blow the are out. Usually they are round and mount into the ceiling. Another way to tell is if the unit has a wall mounted thermostat.

Hope this helps,

My ducted heating continually blows cold air thru

Well, if need be, turn the breaker off. Turn it on when you need heat. Sounds like the fan relay is sticking or something if that sort. Is the tstat fan selector on auto?

Installation of 57915

Look in the 14x14 hole the ac sets on. See the openings, those are where the air flows through the ceiling. If you block those off you will not get air. The air box kit is for ducted air. If you notice it will direct air to the ceiling ducts.

Air Conditioning Unit is leaking badly, has mold and ice.

soundls like the condensate drain is clogged and coil is dirty. look for a plastic pipe inlet where water would flow to.. you may be able to clear it by blowing it out with compressed air. you can also pour bleach into it to address the mold problem. if the coil is icing up it is because it is dirty. to verify this, let the unit run in ac mode for about an hour and check to see if you have air flow from the vents. if you do not, then the cooling coil is covered in ice, thus blocking air flow. you should have a qualified ac person clean the coil and check the refrigerant charge on the unit. one thing to consider, change your ac filter often, at least once a month in hot weather.
