It is possible that the drain hole on condensate pan is plugged and causing water to over flow pan. Remove cover from unit and check drain line.Clean coils andpan as best you can and clear drain hole. Add a small amount of bleach to water in drain pan.This will kill any algea or bacteria that may be growing in condensate water and plugging the drain. Thank you

Coleman Mach 48000 series roof top A/C in my camper & recently it's been dripping heavily inside the camper. We looked at the top & inside for a clogged line & can't find anything, suggestions?


I had the same problem but it wasn't a clogged drain line, it was the gasket between the roof of the camper and the AC unit. The gasket had shrunk and pulled apart allowing rain water in. To make sure you don't have a clogged drain line when using the AC do you notice water dripping off the camper anywhere besides inside? You should have some drips somewhere on the outside.

Where is the drain?


There are grooves on both sides of ac unit on a camper and it drains down the roof to a little gutter that travels the water towards end of camper and drains. Most of the time down the side of camper, but if these Grove are stopped up it will not allow it to drain and cause it to overflow inside camper. If filter is very stopped up or evaporator coil is stopped up, fan not running, low on refrigerant, or having the thermostat set way to low can cause it to freeze up and when this water thaws out it is too much for the drain to handle and also ice could be sticking being the drain pan melting causing it to go in your camper. I would check filter and those drain grooves first.

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days. The condensate lines are open....


Remove the filter at ceiling and run the AC on cool etc, and see if you can feel cool air leaking across to return air inlet where the divider between cold and return is. Check along all edges, etc for any cool air . Careful of wiring, but you should be able to get hand in there and feel especially around the edges where it should be sealed tight. Quite often a leak in that area causes cold air to enter return air and causes excessive condensation. Another thing to check is look way up inside opening for return air, with a flashlight and see if any dirt/dust on coils and fins of evaporator, and if so, needs to be cleaned off with a vacuum, and brush attachment. Let me know what you find.

Water dripping out of rv ac into rv.


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.

I have a coleman Mach rooftop unit & want to connect drain tubing to carry condensate away. Is there a small drip pan with a tubing conncetion for this?


If all you want to do is re-route condensation dripping off the roof, and it's a rubber roof, one easy way is to buy a caulking tube of "Dicor" self leveling sealant for rubber roofs from RV dealer, and run a 1/4"-3/8" bead across roof from AC to wherever you want it to go, and let it cure for a couple of hours. Nobody sees it, and a tube is about $10 max.

Where are the drainage hoses located on a 2005 coleman rv ac


many times the pan of the evaporator in intergral with the drainage. You need to pull the cover and see which way the pan is pitched you should be able to trace it that way.

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.

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
