AC Drain Cups?

Ok, I know that title was nebulous so let me explain...

I have the external AC drains on my Endeavor (you, know, the kind that drip condensate all down the sides, instead of thru the little hoses in the roof/sidewalls like the higher-end coaches), and just got thru cleaning the coils and watched all the gunk run off... and down the sidewalls.

I vaguely remember someone had posted a pretty-neat idea here about making some little PVC cups that fit right under the AC drain outlet, and then channel the water thru hoses (or PVC) and down to the ground. Can't for the life of me find the post. I tried several different kinds of 'search' but I guess i don't have the knack.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

I'll be watching this thread intently, because I'd love to do that also. As a matter of fact, I'd like to channel the water down one of my roof stacks.

I am going to follow this post as I too want to stop the two roof AC units condensation from running down over the awings / side of the coach. Wish my coach had rain gutters.

What I've found so far is a kit that Dometic sells for use with coaches with internal (ie, thru the roof/walls) drains. But looks like it could be adapted for external drains. Here's the part number... 3107688.016.

Does this help foster any DIY ideas? ( I just don't want to spend $60 for 2 little plastic cups, when I don't need most of the other stuff in hte kit)

Interesting you found that. Here is the diagram:

Brisk Air A/C Drain Pan 3107688.016 : Out-of-Doors Mart!, More Airstream Parts on-line than anyone!

After reading the instructions, I'm wondering where the drain goes? Inside or outside?

Hi Mark -
The drain is designed to have been internal (ie, it's plumbed thru the roof and down inside the walls), which pretty-much makes it something that's built-in when the coach is being manufactured.

I'm wondering how we can come up with a similar cup-concept and then route the condensate water over and down, using tubing/PVC. At least it won't make long unsightly drips down the walls.

My AC's have the pumps built in and I have had to replace one two years ago. Many years ago I had a coach that let the water run out on the roof. I used the vinyl rv gutter on the roof to redirect the water to the ds rear corner, easy, cheap and works forever.
