leaking Airstream

We have a leak in our Airstream that appears to be from the air conditioner but are not sure. It doesn't leak when the air conditioner is running. It leaks during the rainy season here in Washington. Water is found under the refrigerator and along the street wall into the living area. We have checked everything but removed the air conditioner. Does anyone have ideas on what else it could be?

Welcome to the forum, kciok.

It could be an air conditioner leak, but that is not my first thought.

Your refrigerator has its own rooftop vent for air circulation. I recommend you inspect it first.

When was the last time you renewed the vent stack gaskets? Do you have an awning anywhere near the area? One of my most persistent leaks was a hole under the awning rail that had not been properly sealed, did not find it until I took the awning and rail off.

Leaks in Airstreams in particular can show up a long ways away from where they actually started. There are many different pieces of framing that they can run along before showing up inside.
