A/C leaking water down inside wall......

HELP>>>> Anybody got a clue as to what the problem could be????? I have a Jayco RB185 with a wall mounted A/C. Bought this unit new in 2015,never had any issues until last summer,but only minor.But just came home from Florida and had Major issue with water from A/C running down the wall and pooling up on the floor.It was extremely hot there and the A/C was running @60degrees on high fan.Water was draining,and dripping down the outside,but it sounded as if water was pooling up inside the unit and the fan,being on high was just spitting it around forcing it to go in other places.When I turned up the temp to 70 degrees and turned the fam to medium it seemed to stop,but the damage is already done????Any idea or solution would be appreciated.Thanks..........

Most wall mount a/c have a "slinger ring" that is supposed to throw the water on the outside coils to help it evaporate. Sounds like it just couldn't keep up with the condensate being generated. Could be the drain hole was partially plugged too.

put a level on the AC outside those units should tip down so the water runs out the back of the unit. if it is level or tilted towards the inside of the trailer that your problem. at lease on a house window AC that how it works. you may have to shim it to get it to tilt.

Check at the beginning of where the AC moisture drains, I have seen them clogged on bigger trailers leaking water inside.

As above, check the drains are clear and not obstructed. Also that it is level or just a little tilted toward the outside.
There is a trim ring around the inside that is easy to take off and inspect from there. The outside is a little harder as there is sealant but once off easy to see what is going on.
My 195RB drips a lot in damp weather but all runs down the outside. I may modify it to include a couple of inches of 1/4 inch tubing to get it off the aluminum.

Also, this has been discussed before, try the search feature to see some pics with the trim off.
