Check the condensate drain port for blockage and clear the blockage.
If the cover was on upside down, it is possible that it was impeding the air entering the coil.....this could have caused the coil to frost up....during your time to shut the unit off and inspect, the frost/ice started thawing and dripping into your trailer.

Here are the main items you want to address:
1. Ensure the drain is free and clear.
2. Ensure the air filter is clean and properly in place.
3. Ensure the evaporator coil is clean.
4. Ensure the covers are properly in place. ;-)

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you moving forward. Let me know if you have any questions. Please don't forget to leave a rating for me. :-)

1995 terry camper electric slide out doesn't move can you move it manually?


Yes, all campers with slide outs have a way to manually crank the slide in/out in case of motor or electrical failure. The fun part is figuring out where exactly the place to insert the tool, if you have it. Larger slides with rails typically are brave to the main frame under the slide out whereas the smaller type (bed) would be under the bed and the false floor for protection.

Roof leaking on 2003 breckenridge camper


Most roof ac units sit on a seal that fits around the opening outside, and on the inside there should be 4 long retaining bolts that that have or go thru some brackets, that squeeze the unit down. Kinda "sandwich's" the roof, if you will. I've simply tightened these 4 bolts carefully, and stopped the leak. Or the seal is damaged. And it also may be the drain. The opening will be under the plastic shroud. With the shroud removed you should be able to see a small opening near where its wet on the roof. I normally spray quickly with water at the opening. It normally clears easy. Condensate drain or weather seal.

How can i access the drive unit for the bedroom slide on my 2009 Forest River Flagstaff Classic Super Lite FKBSS?


If the bed is on the slide, more than likely the mechanism is under it. If not then it should be outside in the under belly.
I would check for voltage at the switch first.

Where is the drain?


There are grooves on both sides of ac unit on a camper and it drains down the roof to a little gutter that travels the water towards end of camper and drains. Most of the time down the side of camper, but if these Grove are stopped up it will not allow it to drain and cause it to overflow inside camper. If filter is very stopped up or evaporator coil is stopped up, fan not running, low on refrigerant, or having the thermostat set way to low can cause it to freeze up and when this water thaws out it is too much for the drain to handle and also ice could be sticking being the drain pan melting causing it to go in your camper. I would check filter and those drain grooves first.

Is it a slide in camper? and if so there should be jacks that go at the 4 corners above the truck box. you lift the camper up slightly and drive the truck out from under the camper. The jacks could have been removed and stored in the camper under a bench seet in the dinett.

Auxiliary battery use


The extra battery is there because of the glow plugs and intake heater of the duramax. During cold weather both of these systems draw high amperage from the batteries. A single battery will function, but not as well as a pair.
