After the A/C had been on for a while, we noticed a steady stream of water down the side of the Que. We traced it it the A/C, and figured it was just condensation (but, it was a lot of water!) We did not notice it last time we used the A/C. Is this just condensation? Is it normal?
I would hate to be one of those people who runs to the dealer for every little non-problem!
Your A/C does two things. First, it cools the air in the trailer. Second, it removes moisture from the air in your trailer. That moisture has to go somewhere, and in TT's, it is the norm for the roof mounted A/C to just drip that moisture onto the roof and let it run off like rain.
In hot, muggy weather it is not uncommon for the A/C to pull several gallons of water out of the trailer in the first 24 hours of operation. After that, it slows down unless there are lots of people in the trailer for long periods of time. All that exhaled moisture from our bodies has to go somewhere. If there's no one in the TT, the moisture removed will drop dramatically after the first day.
