We took our new to us 06 17' SD out this past weekend. Leveled and set up and turned
on the AC high at first (40 min) then turned it down. Later checking things out and
noticed that the AC condensation was coming out from underneath the belly band. It
was warm and humid here in the DFW Texas area. Is this normal from underneath the
belly band?

Thank you
Darlene

Good to hear you got out on a camping trip in your new egg. Sorry we missed you when you came in town for the Blue Grass Festival.

 

It is normal to have condensation drip from the roof mount AC unit. Most folks even set up their Casita a little off level to have the runoff go of the back of the roof. My guess is in you case it ran off the roof somewhere else and found the lowest point on the belly band to run to before it came off. 

 

Next time try to trace the path or shift the elevation on your Casita to get it to run off elsewhere.

That it did on the street side, will make that adjustment next time. We went for the jam sessions this time
it was a small one but good one. That was after we went for BBQ. Hope to get to go next month.
thank you again
