Bunk and AC Leak

We have been at Disney Fort Wilderness since Aug 10th. There have been numerous rain storms and Saturday we had torrential rain with no issues. Tonight we return from a day at the parks and we had a significant amount of water enter the bunks. Mattress corners are soaked wood under the mattresses is soaked. This is both top and bottom bunks. Top two rungs of the bunk ladder is also wet. Now we have water coming from the AC dripping inside. I think we have a fix for the bunk but are baffled about the AC. Help.

The dripping is coming from a vent not from the side. Condensation? Never had this with our old unit.

Condensation is definetly a possibility with the A/C.... I am suprised you did not have it in you last rig... Can't think of a summer where I have not seen it in all three rigs I have owned. Normally it is just enough to sort of collect around the vents but occasionally it can get to the point where there is enough masss to start dripping.

Fan was on low and turned the temp a little higher and it went away. The dealership said it was normal but like I said never had it with the old unit. Also got some water from the side of the fridge when we were breaking down for the trip home. Will have them look at that when it goes back in for yet another radio repair.

Could be condensation. High humidity in Fla? Sometimes if it's super humid outside, it'll condensate. Our TT A/C will sweat like crazy if it's really humid out (90-100%). More around the unit itself than the roof vents. Pulling very humid hot air into the unit then blowing it into a nice cool dry cabin will make it sweat at the vents. At least that's the conclusion I came to. My buddy's Shadow Cruiser did the same thing last time we were camping.

It was very humid. I had left ceiling vent open in the bathroom and had condensation around the a.c. vent. Stopped leaving the ceiling vent open. Lol. I was just really surprised to have water running out of the a.c. We had to put a bowl under it. Cleared up quickly. This unit definitely has a different set of quirks then our old one did.

Running the fan on high should help as well.

Ahh that could be the difference between old unit and new one. We always ran the old one on high to get cool into the back bedroom. We don't have that issue with this unit that I really like! Thanks!
