    PS: it's leaking in a very specific way, into a very specific location into the home.

    Hmmmm, your in AZ its 115 degrees out and your pushing some mighty fine cold air through that un-insulated duct. Must be due to the crappy equipment.

    Break or cut in the t'stat wire drawing the water by capillary action to leak at the thermostat is very possible. Besides look at the ductwork. It's shiny. Shiny stuff don't leak.

    He didn't say whether on not it only leaks when it rains. Plenty of places it shoould leak, though.

    Thats purty, I would have painted it to match the sideing, BTW thats why it's leaking it just needs a fresh coat of pait. Maybe pink to match the pink flamingos in the lawn

    Supply (round) duct at roofline? Looks like the male end pointing down into the female duct connection at roof line. Are the supports to the round duct nailed/screwed into roof or just free-standing?

    Thats one of those dehumidification systems, cause contrary to popular belief it's not always a "Dry Heat"

    I'd say around 40 ST and Broadway
