Rain leaking from Air Conditioner

Had 40mph winds and about 7 inches of rain last night near Bastrop, Tx. Woke up to find water leaking heavily from AC (DuoTherm Penguin).

Previously replaced cracked pan and added gasket (which was missing). Doesn't leak w/ rain and no wind.

Suggestions for cause and repair?

I would look at the drain tube from the pan. It doesn't take much to clog it or slow it down. Usually blowing a little air up the tube will clear it if that is the problem

I had the same problem after installing a new AC in my last AS. After a few weeks, the AC had settled in on the gasket and it simply needed a few more cranks on the screws that tighten the AC down to the trailer. That worked for me, hope it helps.

I had the same issue when I installed a new AC unit. That was several years ago and it has not leaked since.
