When our A/C is on low the water runs off the roof. When we have it on high, it leaks inside the trailer. Last trip out we had a pail on the floor under it to catch the water. Anyone else have this problem with their Crossroads TT A/C?

My roof was replaced when it was new..long story, but when they installed the AC they forgot the spacers that allow the condesation to drain off. Dealer thought they had it fixed, but didn't get the space correct. I took the cowling off and inserted water bottle caps and this seemed to stop the inside leaking. Note: Mine only leaked when it turned off.

This is the original roof as far as I know. My husband has to go on the roof and take the cover off to look. It dripped when it was running, then a small gush when we shut it off. Maybe 1/4 cupful of water. The walkway in the 19' TT is fairly narrow so the pail was really in our way getting past the corner of the bench seat.

Sounds like your condensation water is pooling somewhere it is not suppose to. Pulling the cowling may help to determine the issue. Seems the fan is blowing the pooling water away from the leaking area and when shut off, the water back flows into the rig.

Look for a dam of leaves and pollen that is not allowing the water to run off like it should. And believe it or don't look for critter nests of all kinds.

Some newer AC units use some of the condensate water to cool the condenser so just be careful prior to removing debris build up. Just make sure that what you scrrape off is not meant to bein the pan by design. You may also want to check that the fins on the unit are not freezing up due to a low freon charge ordirt build up the iceing can cause water to drip in odd spots.

We've been so busy he hasn't found the time to check it out. We wont need it again until spring so he has time. We're going camping Halloween weekend with the camping club and will probably need heat more than A/C.

It was running good and didn't appear to be freezing or having any problems. Just that the water was dripping inside on High instead of outside and down those little spouts.

Just curious... Are you guys leaving the door open, or going in / out a lot on very humid days? We had a condensation problem this year on very humid days and the kids leaving the door open. Condensation the a/c unit, ceiling vents, and the ceiling along the a/c duct route next to the a/c unit. The door stayed closed it went away.

We had no condensation problems in the summer. We only have that in the winter when the heat is on. Even with the windows cracked. We don't go in and out a lot as no kids are with us. Just the 3 cats this past season. And because of them we're careful to close the door at all times. We have plexiglass on the screen door to allow light in. It's held tightly with Velcro and we remove it when A/C or heat isn't needed.
