Dash AC 2005 Freightliner

here is a picture of the back side of the AC looking from the opening where the Ge pulls out in the front of the coach.

This picture was taken after driving with AC on. The area toward the bottom on each side of the round object appears to be a tray to handle condensation. The brownish area in the 2 openings appears to be a type of filter material over coils but I don't see anyway to remove it. The opening on the right side is wet and condensation is seeping out at the bottom. I am sure that is not supposed to do that. I would assume that there is a internal drain somewhere that may be plugged. Any thoughts on cleaning this area and stopping the condensation leaks. You should be able to click on the picture to enlarge it to get a better view.

The AC works and cools fine. Thanks

The brown foam usually covers the vent doors for a better seal when closed. The condensation should drain into the tray and run off.
This may help: Evans Tempcon, Inc - Owners Resources

Since my doors are normally open when shutdown- I installed screens to keep critters out of the vents

Thanks, that gives me a place to start. I send them an email to see if they can provide some additional information on how to correct this. Thanks again

I contacted Evans Tempcon and they said it was not one of their units. So I looked under the dash and found a sticker that Has "Specific Climate Systems, Inc" Ft Worth TX ser # 1729483. But they are now out of business.
