My air conditioner is dripping condensation from inside the coach onto the carpet.  I turned off the unit.  what could this be???  It was pretty hot here in santon, Pa at KOA and is was running ok at the last campground.   Someone told me that another camper had the same problem and his air conditioner quit.   I've never had this problem before.  I have a couple hundred miles to go before getting  back to my home tomorrow.  So we are running fans now and has cooled off some.  Help

Also the frige is sweating inside and I turned up the unit.  I am 90$ level so that can't be the problem.  My dometic frige in last unit was better than this norcold.  any suggestions????     I wish the frige was not on the slide out.

Leaking roof A/C means there is a lot of moisture in the air and it has frozen up. Just turn it off and let it sit for a few minutes. Running the fan can help defrost the out side coils. If it is dripping inside, then you need to remove the inside cover and tighten the four bolts about 1/2 turn each. Do not over tighten the bolts as this will cause the seal to get to tight.

As for the refrigerator, just keep the door closed as much as possible and it will dry out by itself. A box of baking soda inside the refrigerator will help prevent this condition and will help dry it out now.

We no longer own a PC. We had two of them and loved them both. Due to changing health and no longer camping, we wanted a touring coach. Phoenix does not make a class B so we had to turn to a Winnebago Travato 59K in March 2018

  great tips,,, the AC problems sounds like the old window units we had when I was growing up in Dallas, they were always freezing up    so for my own education,,,  when I have run the AC usually have it set 72 to 76,,, it has always recycled off and on,,,  now if the AC is not recycling that means it is struggling to maintain that 72 to 76 and I'm taking a chance of it freezing up in the coils.

Frige  If doing a lot of summer traveling probably going to have same problem ,, wonder if it would be worth it get some of those desiccant packs to put in the frige,,
