Dometic AC dripping water from the unit vents inside on floor between twin Beds


Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced this before?  We are in the FL Keys where Temp & RH are both quite high.

We had it a few nights ago, then nothing for a few days.  We ran AC last night, and no drips/water on the floor, and exterior AC drain hose was dripping nicely.
Ran the AC today when we left pet inside, and came home to a substantial puddle again, went outside and AC drain hose was not dripping.

Anyone experienced this before?    
Do I remove exterior AC cowling to access anything that would show what the issue is?    Do I remove interior Plastic pieces to expose where the water was dripping from?
Where is drip pan that collects the condensation from the unit located? 

The supplied Dometic Thermostat & AC pages in manuals do not address anything like this.

Any feedback would be appreciated,

Bryan, Out

The manuals won't help, because (i think) it's the Oliver drain tube is plugged, or kinked.. 

Just be glad you have twin beds. In the standard configuration, it would be dripping on the bed. (Ask me how I know.)

On my Hull 218 the AC condensation drain line comes out at the left rear (street side) corner near the cable TV connector, stick a flexible rod of some kind up inside, most likely a bug or mud dawber has taken up residence. Mine is a 1/2” PEX plastic pipe, you won’t hurt it unless you get carried away with something hard and sharp. That line runs up the back side of the cargo area (toward the roof) you can also access it from there.

Consider adding some coarse bronze wool to allow the water to come out, but keep the bigger bugs out. I think you can get it way cheaper at Walmart.

I think we were able to access the plug from the inside. Paul and I were talking about it. We "think" we stuck a long tie wrap (24") through the drain tube , and cleared it. We so seldom use ac, and that was at least ten years ago. Maybe more.

We had a very similar issue last year, and took it to Oliver Service and they discovered the condensate drain tube was kinked like mentioned above by Seadawg. Oliver fixed the kinked drain tube and our AC has worked fine since. 
Hope you get it resolved quickly.
