I didn't notice you were in NS. Best place to find the fiberglass kits for you would be Canadian Tire or any Home Hardware.

Hi, I had that problem on my rear Ac two years ago. I went to Home Depot(hardware store) and bought a putty like JB Weld putty that you have to kneed in your hand for about 20 seconds to activate it. It's is used on water pipes and is sometimes called aqua weld. After you kneed it, you just have to press form it into all the cracks. I had several cracks from tubing connections and the pan in several places. It only takes a few minutes to cure. I turned on the Ac and let it run for a long while without the bottom shroud. It has worked perfectly.

my front a.c. was beyond fixing it with putty!right now la nomade is covered and surrounded by snow,after all those storms we do not know where to put it anymore...i have to wait for it all to melt,and a sunny day with a minn.of 54 degrees to install the pan which was lined with fiberglass.So i will not know if it works for a while.Eventually i have to take apart the rear A.C.which also leaks and if the cracks in the pan are not too bad i will try the putty first before i remove the unit to get to the pan to line it with fiberglass...will keep you posted....

I would just nix the pans and let the water leak on the roof. You would have to remove the units or at least flip them upside down so you can get all the old caulk off the roof. Most units use some thick foam rubber to make the roof seal. The newer Dometic units have a drain kit that sorta works. The pan was an Airstream part and I am not sure they make them anymore but you could call them. The pan would fit any AC unit and just funnel water from the top of the pan to the drain. I think the pan was caulked to the roof and then the standard foam gasket was used to seal the AC unit to the top of the pan. If you remove the pan and get a new foam gasket, most of your problems will go away. Water will leak down the sides of the trailer but so does mine with the Dometic Drain kit.
