AC drip pan broken and leaking

On our 1991 350 LE, the pervious owner installed a new Dometic low profile AC, but the drip pan is cracked and leaking.

I have seen the new catchment system, and I am able to get the unit on and off the roof.

What I need a little info about is this:

As I understand it, the current drain system is actually a "catch pan" installed as an extra part under the AC, that should be sealed to the roof sheets?

And, the new catch system comes with a new gasket to double the original for added height. So, since this AC has been installed and clamped down, should I replace the old gasket to re-install the unit with the new catch pans or with the supplied gasket be ok?

Thanks in advance for any input.


Regards,

JD

If you intend to use Dometic's auxiliary drain kit, you should also replace the existing A/C gasket, as it will be very difficult to perform the installation with a gasket that is already compressed.

PM me if you need some detailed explanations.

If you also want to fix the crack in the drain pan, use JB Weld epoxy, it is a miracle product! Worked for me, Grwat!
