The manual said to remove the rubber cap on the back, exterior, of the unit, insert the drain plug and push down lightly to drain off the excess water accumulation. However, a drain plug was not included in the package. Furthermore, there wasn't an actual "hole" in the unit to insert it. I did drain what I could by just leaving the cap off. This did not take care of the problem completely. Next, I unscrewed and removed the the front, interior, of the housing unit. I then noticed additional water buildup in the bottom of the unit under the sling fan. I could not remove the fan, so I used a turkey baster to **** out what water I could. I know - resourceful don't cha think! Then pushed paper towels into the bottom of the cavity to absorb any leftover water. Whaaala - problem solved.

Thanks for your prompt response.

Where are the condensing water drains?on a Coleman RV rooftop air conditioner

The condenser drains for a roof unit drain on top of the rv. There are on hoses which divert the condensation to a location other than the roof. Are you trying to keep it from dripping down at the door?

Compressor will not stay on no matter the temp. setting. After running a couple of minutes the unit emits a scraping or buzzing noise and compressor goes off.

Sounds like you lost one of your fans if air is circulating in the room its the condenser fan. Thats what blows across the condenser coil to the outside. It may just be a capacitor thats what helps the fan get started but usually if the fan is popping capacitors there is something wrong with the fan but at the same time capacitors do just go bad. hope this helps let me know.

Internal unit is leaking water

Check condensate tubes - they may be blocked and need cleaning. All manufactures recommend having your furnace and air conditioner checked and cleaned on an anual basis. You can clean your condensate tubes yourself - if it is severly blocked you may have to use compressed air to unblock, but first to a combination of bleach and water. Better yet a technician will clean the condensate tubes and well as the rest of the unit so that it's running at its top efficiency

My air conditioner doen't start. I have a goodman air cond.

Check to make sure that the power is on to the outdoor unit and the furnce. Check breakers and fuses. There may also be a disconnect outside located by the condenser. It is probably a gray box, loft the cover and make sure the shitch is on. Otherwise if you turn the thermostat to cool, if the furnace blower comes on and the outdoor unit does not check the following. Turn off poer to outdoor condenser and open up the electrical compartment on the condensing unit outside. There is a round or oval cylinder inside. Its probably silver in color. That is the capacitor. If the top is bulged, its a true sign of a capacitor failure. Take the capacitor out and take it to your local HVAC Wholesaler of contractor. The part should cost you around 15 to 25 dollars. If this does not work, let me know.

Coleman tsr rv air conditioner leaks into rv when running

It probably has a clogged condensate drain. Take off the cover on top the RV and check hoses or tubes leaving unit for debris or lint. Often this water is used to help cool the condenser so look for leaves pine needles etc in the pan. There may be a cover you can remove on the evaporator section that will allow you to clean the collection pan and hose or trough. Is it possible the RV is far enough out of level that the condensate can't "run uphill"? Always power off while working on this unit unless you are electric savvy. Good luck!

Check what you think is condensation and see if it could be oil. Water will evaporate when you rub your fingers together but oil will not. On new units you will sometimes get a smell of baking paint for a short time. In Air Conditioning as the system is cooling it lowers the dew point and the moisture in the air will condense. This is a normal part of the function of an air conditioner. If it is oil that you find take it back to the place you bought it from. The system has a refrigerant leak.
