AC Leaking Problem in Swift SLX

My tt is only three months old and the AC leaked this weekend. I had it leveled perfectly. Anyone else having this problem? Shouldn't there be some kind of a tube to drain the water out? I know there is a water pan but don't see any way for the water to drain from condensation. Very frustrating.

Where is it leaking? At least on mine it drains onto the roof and it comes out the lowest gutter end.

My 154 slx drains to the outside--kinda drips down the window. Is yours draining inside?

Yes, it drips on the inside. This AC is on the side and not a roof AC. Very strange that it won't drain outside. When I look at it from outside there is no type of tube to drain the water. I know window ac's in a home have some type of tube hanging down to drain the water. Someone told me the TT has to be tipped more to the right so it will drain outside. This is crazy!

I am not familiar with those side mounted AC units. I could see that if it was too far off level it would leak, but I would not think it would do it if slightly off. I would give Jayco a quick call and inquire about it. Maybe there is a travel/storage plug that has to be removed??

Until you can get your problem looked at, try tilting the TT slightly so that the condensate runs toward the outside portion of the A/C unit. Although you say you're perfectly level, maybe the A/C unit isn't. I know for a fact that my floor reads different from my kitchen countertop when I put a level on each of them. Yet, in theory, both should be level.

My 2,011 17C A/C was on fan only when we went out. During our outing there was a really hard long rainstorm. The rain stopped, we returned to the RV and the rain had come through the A/C onto a rug. There was a lot of water not just a few drops, the rug was soaked, and the A/C was still dripping even though the rain had stopped. It dripped for hours, though it was only a few drops at a time. Is this normal?

Thanks for this forum. It is really, really helpful, especially for us people who have not had their first RV for long.

No, that isn't normal. Sounds like the A/C unit is not sealed properly or the hold down bolts are loose.

Did you check the A/C mounting bolts (as shown in the recall section) to make sure they are tight (firm)?
