This is what the condensate drain on a Sport 22 looks like. The water drains into a cup, which rests on the hot coolant tube, and is evaporated by the heat of the tube:


Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Okay, that's similar to mine. Where is the electrical connection the OP was concerned about?

(I see in my prior post I was obviously still thinking about the air conditioner drain... Oops.)

I have a 22' Sport and it does not have that evaporator cup. Mine is a 2008. What year trailer and brand refer is the one depicted?

I am thinking that most of the folks that are complaining don't have a drain right above an electrical connection. For what it's worth, I don't think I would have designed the drain the way yours was.

I have an alert for you. One time I was at a campground where the polarity was reversed on the electrical outlet. My daughter was barefoot, and when she went to open the door, she got a shock. My trailer has a warning light for when this happens, but it is street side, so I didn't notice it. I can't think of a way to ground the electrical so you won't get a shock when the polarity is reversed, but maybe a buzzer would be better than a light that you can't even see in daylight. Yeah I always check the power hook ups and especially extension cords now.

Hi, this is one reason that I keep a polarity tester plugged into one of my kitchen outlets and check it every time that I plug into shore power, even at home. I also made a polarity tester for testing the power post before plugging my shore cable into it. I also use a Kill-A-Watt.
