Question A/C Condensation Leak

I have a leak from A/C condensation inside our coach. After tech. removed a/c unit from roof he found that Western RV added a drain system for the condensation. This system allows the water to run into two cups then thru a hose and out the bottom of the coach. Most A/C runs out on roof then down the side of the coach. On high end models I guess they add this so that will not happen. It looks like when the A/C was put on at the factory they crushed this pan by over tightening the bolts or they dropped it on this drain system. Anyway does anyone know where to get these pans. There is a pan on each corner (front) of the unit. Mine can be repaired with epoxy but would like to replace if I can. As far as we know this is not a product of Dometic.

I tried a search on ac condensate and didn't find the thread that showed photos of somebody's fix, it may have gone w/the Forum software change over.

IIRC the replacement was ~3" PVC pipe end cap drilled to accept the condensate tubes w/tubes sealed into place. Not a high pressure type cap, but the flat bottomed low pressure type like for thin wall sewer pipe that is only 1" or so deep. Maybe a better search string will find the old thread and its pictures.

I recall the same thread. Someone had also found the OEM parts, too. It seems like the website or manufacturer was included. I'll take a look later (my computer is crawling today). I, too, noticed the threads are broken, missing or something. The Moderators are apparently still working on that.
