Vent dripping water - is this a problem?

We've been full-timing for ~8 months, but only now are dealing with hot weather (90+ in Arizona). With the AC running all the time, this vent is now dripping water. I have no idea how concerned to be. Anyone know?

Thanks!
Dave

You might want to check for leads in the sub-forum which includes the air conditioning IMO:

Good luck,

Your drain line might be plugged. You can blow it out with compressed air

Or suck it out with a wet/dry vacuum. Less likely to spit dirt all over the interior.. You should find the drip hose in the roadside wheel well.

Hi

While you are at it, you probably should clean the filters and pull any dust out of the ducts. Even if it's not the cause, it's something that needs doing fairly often.

Is it possible that the cooling coils are frozen from humidity overload. Water will then build up in places where it can’t drain properly . This is usually accompanied with poor cooling
Shut off the AC when you leave the trailer and let it defrost. If the water only comes back after running for a while the problem may be the the AC can’t handle the high humidity

Thanks everyone. Anyone know where the drain line actually is for this? Think I'll first try this approach and see if it works; I unfortunately don't have easy access to a wet/dry vacuum

Is this the AC drain line? To blow this out, I basically just connect my air compressor to it and try to create a vacuum seal?
