Tiredvet,

Here is a picture of the bottom of the AC unit before it is installed on the coach. Just a note to anyone that buys a new AC unit, the new AC's do not come with the white plastic drip cups shown at the bottom of the picture. The cups, additional gasket material, hose & "T" are optional and available at an additional cost.

Good pics and description !! .... Thanks !!

The area(s) covered by the collection cups are the areas that drip on the roof in units that do not have have piped systems. In other words, if you have an older Holiday Rambler/etc. the condensate just drips on the roof and then flows to a low spot ... usually off a corner of the roof.

I solved the problem on my 05 Alpine by pulling the drain line down, eliminating a high spot as it crossed the underside of the roof. I used a long self tapping sheet metal screw to keep it from migrating up. I Haven't had any issues in 2 years. Before I made the mod I was fighting water dripping inside the MH and across the roof all the time. The picture is of the front bulkhead just below the windshield on the drivers side. The rear AC has a similar line that can be accessed through the engine service cover (hood) on the drivers side also.

I had a similar issue with water dripping into the coach from the front AC, turned out that the junction of the 2 lines (there is a junction inside the coach in the AC area) was not done correctly. This allowed about 75% of the condensate to drip into the coach! Replaced the tubing junction and have not had an issue since!
