Cool AC Unit Cabinet Expansion

Hello from Key Largo, Florida. We have a 2015 Coleman CM16FBS with a wall AC unit. When we purchased it, we noticed that the presswood that is on the side of the ac (to the right of it) has expanded. We know that there is a pan inside the cabinet that collects the water, so wondering if anyone else has had this issue? Where can we replace that side piece? Im assuming its condensation that has made the side cabinet expand.
Has anyone replaced it or figured out what the issue is?

You will be hard pressed (pun intended) to find the same type of wood. I had a 16FB for a while and there were several issues with the install. The pan was not made correctly and was tipped the wrong way. Leveling the trailer is critical to keep water flowing the right direction to avoid the issues you are having. Taking the A/C unit completely out should reveal the issues and what you need to do to correct them.

There is madness to my methods
