A/C Internal Drip

Help! Last night our rear air conditioner started dripping condensation internally. We've been on the road for a couple of months and this is the first time this has happened. It was 41 degrees outside when we got up this morning. Ideas?

Thanks, Jack

Start by removing your ceiling panel and determining where the water is dripping from. It is likely to be a plugged condensate tube. What brand of AC do you have, and can you tell how it is installed ( ie, in a "pan")?

If the tube checks out, it could be a cracked AC drip pan. This happened to us, fortunately our unit was still under warranty when it happened.

Ours did that this year and after removing everything i.e. the cover and pan etc I found the drip coming from sealant around the condensate tube. I cut as much old sealant (caulking) from around the tube as was possible and then resealed it with a rubberized caulking, let it cure and ran the unit with no more leaks. The tube was running condensate water as normal after that and I was happy to find the leak that easily.
