2022 HC 377FL strange water leak

I have a water leak and I canít find the source. I find water underneath the steps leading to the FL area and under the cabinets that are directly behind the two recliners. There are no water lines running anywhere near this area and there is no water coming from the washer dryer, sink, shower, hot water heater or where the water comes into the camper. Iím truly dumbfounded and was curious if anyone else may have this issue?

Iíve had a mechanic who has been in business for 30 years say heís lost and canít understand where the water is coming from. My only thought is that it possibly an air condition line that may be leaking in the wall??

Any assistance, thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

My vote is the air conditioner. Time to get on the roof and remove the cover. Make sure the drain line is clear and the condensation is making it's way to the rain channel. Also make sure the channel is secure and sealed. If there's a way water will find it's way in.

I have the FL375 model, which is the fore runner of the FL377, same floor plan but no loft over the rear bedroom.

Question? Is your air conditioner running when the water appears?

If so, it's condensation from the air ducts in the ceiling.

I'm in Louisiana right now. The humidity has been unbelievable for weeks now and our air conditioners (both of them) are running full throttle. When the humidity hits certain levels, the round AC vents on the ceiling begin dripping, like someone turned on a garden hose! One drips right over the bed, so we keep a towel there, and the other drips over the love seat size recliner beside the steps going up to the upper living room. (And that's the spot I like to sit at.)

It's possible the condensation is leaking down the walls across the floor leaving a puddle.

It's also possible your ceiling AC vents are dripping also, not going down the wall. Sometimes, my entire ceiling is wet with condensation when the AC's are running. This experience has only happened to us in Louisiana and only this year. And it doesn't do it all the time. So, I'm positive its condensation, especially when the ceiling has water hanging from it.

Now, if you have not been running your air conditioner, then there is still a mystery to solve.
