If it's leaking inside where filter cover is, then real good chance the drains being plugged is the only problem. If water (condensation) not running off roof when operating in cool mode, then I'd bet drains, which are located under unit on roof, and you should see them sticking down like buttons. They have a hole in side that needs cleaning with a pipe cleaner or similar to open them up. If need be, shut off power to unit and remove top cover on roof unit and look for the drain holes in base, and clean them out. If water comes in while raining, but AC not running, then it's gasket. That is remedied by removing ceiling assembly (just screws) and 4 bolts that pull/hold the upper and lower assemblies together, unplug wiring to upper unit, and simply lift it off, change gasket and re-install. Tighten those 4 bolts equally when gasket is aligned properly over hole, only until gasket is approx 1/2, original thickness. Plug harness back in and your done. (about an hours work.) Only other thing that may be wrong is styrofoam drip tray for cooling unit, under cover on roof may have a crack , allowing condensation to leak in. If that 's the case, you can try to find a sealant compatible with styrofoam to seal those cracks.

I have 2 Coleman roof ac's on my 34' coach that are ducted. The fans work and the compressors come on but the air isn't cold enough to cool the coach. The front unit temp only goes to 70 deg....


Are there any filters? If they are clogged the unit will not work properly and the temp will not drop as much as it should as it cannot absorb the air in the trailer or room.

Air conditioner leaks/drips from filter inside travel trailer


Either your 14"x14" a/c gasket is lose on the roof allowing the condensation to flow into your RV or you have a cracked condensation tray under the evaporator. I'm guessing the later

Water leak


If you remove the air grill for the inside part you will find four screws which when tightened compress the seal gasket under the outside to roof. It may be a case of these screws being somewhat loose.
