A/C Water Leak

During our trip to General Butler State Park I noticed a few drops of water coming down from the A/C vent.  Once we got back from the trip I started trying to determine where the leak was coming from.  I knew where inside the RV I saw the water trail but couldn’t find the source.  I had to get on the roof, which would be for the first time.  I had my son come help me and once I got on the roof I started taking the A/C cover off and began looking for the source of the leak.  I found a very wet spongy material under the A/C unit that was the source of the issue.  There isn’t really a way to dry it and I can only imagine it got soaked due to all the rain.  I put everything back together and my son hand me the hose.  I then began to soak the A/C down to see if it would leak again.  I sprayed water on it at various angles for 15 minutes.  My son was inside the RV looking for a leak, it never leaked.

I am not sure what caused this to leak, if it was just an abnormal amount of rain at just the right angle.  I am having the A/C guy come back out and take a look at it.  Maybe the spongy material needs to be replaced.  We will let him make that determination, since he is the expert.

General Butler State Park

General Butler State ParkWe decided our second trip would be to General Butler State Park.  This park is about 1hour from our house which would give me a little more experience driving the RV.  The park also has a lot of shade and full hookups.  When I made the reservation I ended up getting the one handicap site they have.  The site was a concrete pad instead of asphalt and around 64ft long.  It is well shaded and near a bathhouse if we need it.
