1969 AC unit leaking inside

We just purchased a fully restored 1969 Tradewind. The Ac was and does run well but it was leaking all over inside. I see a copper pipe that is open on the end?????????
Also found a small fiberglass tray the is 1 to 2 inches wide and 10 inches long and 1 inch deep that has a hole and a gormet arounf the hole.

Any ideas?

Help we are leaving Monday/\\\



Bill

The usual setup has a drain line from thr air conditioner (may be the copper pipe?) down thru the wall and emerging usually between the wheels. If it is original and all connected there is debri blocking the line at the air conditioner. A shot of air up from the outlet end would clear it

I cannot find any exit below in the belly pan for a cooper tube or anything for that matter.

I have read on the forum where new AS owners have same problem. I was running the ac full blast for over an hour or so. Now I am running it lower and shorter periods and it seems to be fine. Maybe I was overdoing it?
