A/C draining water inside

This problem started a year ago after not having it happen for the first three years weve owned the trailer...the A/C drains the condensation inside the trailer. And weve camped every year in particularly high humid environments such as in FL, but the draining inside hadnt been an issue until last summer. At first I thought the drain pans or the lines themselves may have been blocked, but I removed the unit and the pans were clean and though the lines drained the water I poured into them to check, I still used an air compressor to make sure they were clear of any blockages/buildup. I took the trailer to Jackson Center and they replaced the pans and added some wrapping(?) based upon advice from Dometic. Well, were back in FL and its happening again which is frustrating, but does anyone have any thoughts on what I might be able to do to fix this?

When this is happening drop the shroud or filter frame from the ceiling and check the face of the evaporator coils for ice. If the AC unit is low on charge it can cause the coils to freeze and depending on where that ice forms it may be blocking the drain right below the coil.

Thanks to you all. We think we have a temporary fix by removing the little dark gray center tray and also the two filters and loosely putting the cover back on. Still leaks a few drops, but nothing like the big leaking before.

FWIW - we recently had an issue with our a/c. While researching the problem we found several warnings not to use the a/c without the filters. Doing so will allow dust, dirt, etc to clog the grill fins and cause poor operation.

Oh man-for now Ive decided Id rather deal with potentially cleaning the dust out and not have my comforter soaked, but will definitely consider myself forewarned.
