Air Conditioner dripping water

On the two past camping trips we have had water dripping out of the air conditioner on the inside of the camper ( 19 H). It starts dripping on the door side of the camper, coming out of the cold air return. It dripped out after a good while on the other side as well. This is not an occasional drip, I'm talking about a couple of gallons in a two day period. The weather conditions were 95 degrees and 85% humidity. It didn't do this last year. Could something be plugged up or maybe low on freon? Thanks

what year trailer?...Gasket maybe gone if older.

Evaporator and its tray are likely plugged. Take the shroud off...google the model and cleaning evap and get directions, check tray for cracks..easy

Could also be the unit wasn't tightened down correctly. There was a lot of that going around not long ago, units coming from the factory with the AC hold down bolts loose enough to wiggle with your finger.

It could also be a combination of things. It could be the drain is clogged, or it's too close to the roof and is blocked. Both of those are issues that have been addressed in this forum by various members.

if you haven't done anything with it you should give it an overhaul. I would check the evaporator on the front after you remove the cover there will be another metal cover over the evap...remove it and inspect. If you see water overflowing the drip tray unplug it. If it is empty maybe it is cracked. Clean everything and inspect again. You should definitely change your gasket. Either get it in the shop or do it yourself.
Just be careful of the roof. I wouldn't use it till it is fixed

If it's a flat roof, check your drain. We had a 2007 17 EXPORT, and with the flat roof the drain hole gets plugged real easy. The same thing you are describing happened to us. Check your hold down bolts and gasket as others have said too.

You are not mentioning a lack of cold air, so my guess is like others, clogged drain hose

Where does the drain hose go on a 2007 19h? I'm pretty sure mine is just leaking onto the roof too. One more thing to fix...

Same happened to me. I removed the cover. Cleaned the crud out that was visible. Found the tiny pin hole the water drains down and got a little metal skewer and cleared the drain hole. All has been good since then!

Update

My campers at the dealer now. I'll have an update when I get the results of their diagnosis on it.
