Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Water dripping out of rv ac into rv.

Our Dometic rv ac is dripping water onto the floor of our RV. The hose outside seems to be dripping condensed water just fine, but it is dripping inside from the unit from just above the air filter.
Thanks.

Is it a ducted system? If yes, check that there isn't gaps between the divider that separates return air at the front, with forced(cold) air. You can usually use a flashlight and look for gaps, or even (very carefully) feel it blowing cold into the warm air return. If you find some gaps, buy some foil tape, and tape them off good and retry and see if it still happens. Some older units experienced cracks in drip trays that allowed condensation to drip inside as well. Get back to me with year of your RV, and whether it's ducted or non-ducted system, and perhaps I can guide you better on what to look for.

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?

Efficiency of RV Rooftop Units Deteriorating???

If the overall effectiveness of you RV Rooftop AC seems to be much less than the day you bought, here is a simple procedure to keep it running cold and prolong the life of the unit.

Problems:
1. Air seems to not be blowing as cold as before
2. Compressor trips breaker during the hottest part of the day
3. Air at night works just fine but is lacking during the day

These problems can often be solved by simply cleaning out the condenser coil of the upper unit. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a water hose with a nozzle on it.

- Remove the upper shroud from the unit
- Gently spray water through the condenser coil watching from the fan side. BE CAREFUL, do not spray with too high of pressure nor sideways. Make sure you keep the nozzle spraying directly at the coils.
- Once the water begins to flow clearly through the condenser, you should be good to go. Make sure you get as much of the condenser clean as possible.

This will save the life of many RV Air Conditioners.

Water is leaking from the ac vent in the inside of our rv. We took the cover off and it looks like water is leaking from some kind of hole in a silver box. How do you fix this?

Water is NORMAL in the process of A/C, works like glass of icewater, water vapor condenses when chilled...This condenced water should be drained outside, usually by a black drain hose. you cannot block the water or the system will fail, smell bad, and damage the evaporator (similar in function to a heater core, but for AC).

How to stop leak from Dometic "Brisk air" RV AC into the living area?

  • Start with the condensate drain. Your air conditioner collects condensate water from the evaporator (moisture that was in the air condenses and turns into water on the coil) where it then drains into a pan and then outside of the unit. Look for a drain and clear the blockage. If you have a wet/dry shop vac, you can vacuum out the drain area.
  • Make sure your air filter and your evaporator coil are clean. Clean as necessary.
  • Inspect seals and repair as necessary.
These are the first things you want to do and will, in most all cases, correct the problem you are experiencing. :-)

My dometic RV rooftop air conditioner is leaking on the inside of the camper even after I cleaned the water condensation drain on top of the roof. What could be causing this? The fan is blowing the water...

Remove all covers and look down with them removed and see if the coil drain pan has a stopped up exit where the water drains out and into the rear of the AC unit.

If the unit is off level it could cause a draining problem too.

Ac not blowing cold after outside temp reaches 98 degrees

Sounds like you have dirty condenser coils. Remove the upper shroud and check the condenser for clean. Take a water hose and gently spray out the coils paying special attention not to bend the coils over with too much pressure. This will allow more air movement through the coils and give you better cooling efficiency.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

DUO THERM Model 57915.622 runs and cools fine, but why does it drip water inside on the floor?

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.
