SOURCE: 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!

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?

13.5 Dometic rooftop rv ac design has changed since I purchased 2006 Monaco Camelot rv. The collection cups leading to the drain line do not fit well on the roof seal and a good seal is hard to achieve. If...

I've not run into the problem your having yet, so I will apologize up front for asking you to furnish more information. These drain cups that I assume are little round pieces attached to the base of the unit where it meets the roof, were not common on dometic, but were common on Coleman AC units. Those are the outlets for condensation to the roof anyway, are they not?
Also, as far as gasket goes, no I wouldn't recommend using 2. We were always advised by manufacturer to compress gasket to half the original thickness when installing either Dometic, or Coleman (RV Products). Coleman at one time, had tabs under gasket that when gasket was compressed, and they touched the roof surface inside, that was far enough, which was approximately half the original thickness. Believe it or not, over-tightening is more likely to cause a leak. Stick with half original thickness, or close to it.

Appears to be condensation leaking from the Carrier roof A/C in 2009 Pleasure Way Plateau RV. Leaks on back bed and floor. Thanks, Richard

there should be a pan under the evaporator coil in the roof mounted unit, the pan should have a hose on it to remove the water to a non objectionable place, you need to locate the drain and pressure it up to clear it, I would also remove the top covaer and check the cleanliness of the coil drain pan itself

We have a rooftop coleman air conditioner on our RV. When it runs it trips water on the counter top instead of draining on the roof. I don't know how to fix it

ROOF TOP AC UNIT ON COLEMAN POP-UP LEAKS

Does water drip out of unit on the roof while running ? If you look under the unit on the roof, you should see one or two little drains sticking down., that may be plugged up. Piece of wire or something and poke in the holes on the sides of those drains to make sure they're clear. Usually there is a plastic/nylon pan on roof unit to catch that moisture, and drain it off. Could be overflow because of the plugged drains, or I have seen the odd one crack but not too much recently, mostly back 5 yrs ago or so they had a run of them.

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
