Leaking Air Conditioner.

I have a 69 Globetrotter 21', I have it parked at home and my wife asked if I would go out to the trailer and get the Deep Fryer. Upon entering I stepped onto the throw rug and noticed it was ringing wet. It had been pouring down rain for the past two days. Upon inspection I traced the dripping to the center vent. I took the interior cover off to further search out the problem and could not determine the cause. Help! what should I do? I would appreciate all help given on this problem.

I had a drip channel on mine that was made out of styrofoam. It had deteriorated over the years or gotten munched on by a critter. I had to build it up. The only way to check it out was to take off the roof cover. There's pic on here somewhere of my experience. I had a puddle in the middle of my floor also. Once I built it up no more puddles. Hope this helps.

Ha...found my link...

We need more information--is this the original AC that is held in place with a million screws/rivets, or a more modern unit that is clamped in place by only 3 or 4 bolts? If the former, then your unit has probably rusted through and is allowing water to pour into your trailer. If the latter, then it could be the foam rubber gaskets that seal the unit to the roof, or a crack in the plastic condensate drip pan (if so equipped). Easiest thing to do in any case is to remove the ceiling assembly and look up in there to see where the water is coming from.

good luck

Not the original AC Unit, the paper work shows it was purchased 6years ago. It's a Coleman Unit. I pulled the interior cover off but could not determine the source by looking. It's fixing to rain so it looks as though I will halfto wait until it quits raining to climb up to check it out.

I had the same issue with my Bambi II AC. Tightened the 4 mounting bolts and no more leaks.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."
