A/C Drips on New Years Day 2010

Hi Streamers; Happy 2010. About noon today in mid-florida we had a short,but , hard rain and the most wind we've had lately, that came directly from the door side. We winter in a early 90s 34ft limited and for the first time ever we got dripping right by the A/C coming at the seam of the two ceiling panals a couple inches away from the inside A/C cover. Could the wind shift the unit enough to let water get past the seal? Where else has the water likely gone? The unit is the Duo-therm,Penguin. Is there a pan? Any help or guesses as to what's happening will be much appreciated. Thanks

It would have to be much more wind than we experienced in that storm, here in Inverness. If the unit is bolted down right and your unit is still upright I doubt it was the cause, otherwise with highway travel, every time you are at highway speed and raining you would drip.

Hi DaveFL; We did have some really gusty winds a few hours ago, that said I see what you mean by getting the same thing when on the highway. maybe my A/C seal is getting tired!!! Can't think of what else would start leakage in that area. Thanks anyway. Bud

I was just at the RV service center. Apalachee in Winder Ga. Great guys.
I asked how much it would cost to put a new gasket and seal because my AC is leaking water when it rains. I was told before I do a replacement take the inside cover off the AC and tighten the bolts holding the AC down. I was told that some times over years they will become loose and water will leak. I did what they told me and found out my bolts were very loose. Now I have to wait for a heavy rain to see if I corrected the problem.

Hey LOTHLORIAN; Your info was right-on. Took a spell, but I tightened the A/C mount bolts, they were loose, and waited for wind and rain. today we had both, and all was dry. thank you for taking the time and passing on a fix to made the job easier. The forums are great.
