Steve, you might find, like lots of have, that the drain lines in the ceiling or walls have pulled apart somewhere. At least that’s what happens on WB’s. If that is the case you’ll have to get to the drain lines. On mine it was relatively simple since Bluebird was using Christmas Tree fasteners to hold the ceiling panels in place. I think with yours it’ll be more difficult. Someone with the old style ceiling will come along and direct you. Good luck with it.

Don't overlook the possibility that it froze up and then dripped inside. Take the interior cover off when it is dripping and see if there ice has formed. Happens at times under high heat and humidity, if the A/C isn't operating at 100% and reduced circulation. Not as likely to happen to a non-ducted type like yours, but worth checking before tearing off ceiling panels and realizing you didn't need to.

Jim’s right with that. A dirty filter will make it freeze up and drip. I had that happen recently and forgot about it.

Leon said the drip pan is very shallow and with an extremely large volume of rain and heavy winds it will cause an overflow and drip into the bus, rare but not an uncommon situation. We determined it had to have been the parking angle toward the heavy wind & rain. We have not had an issue since.
John did you have low profile penguins? A bunch of us had a new leak show up Saturday. I know mine in particular was coming from inside the rear AC unit, and if that wasn't a large volume of water with heavy winds I don't want to see what is!
