Question AC Dying??!!

I am camping and came home and noticed a great deal of AC wateroff run outside from my AC. When I came inside there was some large drops of water dripping from AC and a small puddle on the floor!

My AC has been under a lot of strain for several weeks with very high outside
temps and humidity

I always run the fan before turning my AC off
and running just the fan now

I did have my MAXAire fan running at the same time when running my AC
thinking that would pull humidity out however did thst cause the AC to work
harder?? Both were on for an least fours

Turned the MAXXAireoff

What??

I don't think it is a good idea to run the MAXAire and AC at the same time. You are exhausting the conditioned air and exchanging it with hot and humid air being sucked in by the MAXAire, since RVs are not known for air tightness. You have probably iced over the coils, which is where the inside water is coming from. When running ac, close all roof vents, doors and windows and you should be okay. Just like at home. You will get water running on the outside of the unit. That is normal.

Agreed with Jim's comments. I don't think anything is wrong with your A/C, it was just working really hard. Completely normal to have a decent puddle of water on the ground OUTSIDE the trailer if the unit has been running for a while.

I did not mention that I had the MAXXAire on the “Out” position thinking it would draw warm (and humid) air at the ceiling level out. But apparently it drew more cool AC air out making the AC work harder!
