I am not en expert at RV A/C units. I have worked on a couple before. There should be a reservoir somewhere under the evaporator coil(looks kind of like a radiator in a car but much smaller). It should have a hose or something to drain it away from the a/c unit. These very often become plugged on any kind of A/C unit. However if you choose to do this on your own, you will have to climb on top of the RV and remove the cover from the a/c unit to do this. It might be safer to take it to an RV repair shop.

Good place to start is up on the roof. Look way under the unit (hard to see some times) along the bottom, between where the gasket sits on the roof and metal bottom of unit. Should see small round or similar sticking down from unit. There will be a hole in the side of them. Poke around with a wire or something to open them up. If you don't see water/condensation running across your roof from unit when it's operating, (usually in 2 directions, 1 each side of unit) then yup, there plugged.

I have the same problem....it is a negative pressure problem holding water inside the unit until it overflows the pan and runs into the duct system. why this occurs....I don't know....I cant find a problem with my air return, but as soon as you turn in off, the water comes gushing out the drains on the unit. I resolved this....temporarily....by twisting up a paper towel into a wick, and placing one end up into the drain tray, with the other end lying well out into the exterior case. This lets the water wick out and keeps the tray drained. I don't understand the problem and don't know what the permanent fix will be, except maybe cutting a hole and placing an intake vent directly below the unit.

clicking sound could be thermal overload on the compressor. If the compressor has gone out the unit will not cool the clicking sound is possibly the compressor trying to reset but if the compressor has "gone to ground" (winding burnt out) you will need to have the compressor replaced. Good luck on your repairs hope this helped some

SOURCE: Front AC unit will not turn on
The clicking tells me the AC(hydro) power has been turned off to it. Check all breakers, and make sure if you have another switch on wall, to change from front, to back, or to both, that it is in proper position.
