AC drain location

Just a quick question:
I plan eventually to put a Penguin on the roof of my '59, which doesn't have factory installed condensate drain. I have the interior panels off for a shell-off restoration. I have the drain pan (arrived today with many footprints on the box, courtesy of UPS). But I don't know which side of the wall the drain hose goes down-is it right or left? I don't want to put it in wrong and end up going down the highway with my AC unit pointed backward.

Thumbs up Just an input


On my 84 A/s, the drain hose is located on the street side.
This is also the same side as the kitchen sink side.
Not sure if this helps or not but, I suspect because the drain for the frig is on the other side, they put the A/C drain on this side..
Who knows?

The drain is placed on the roadside of the coach. I belive this was done so you would not be stepping in the condensate water entering and exiting the coach. It also keeps the area under your awning from getting muddy.

Street if at all possible.
I'm stuck with curb side because of my window placement (see avitar). I'm mulling over the alternatives on this. It looks like my drain line will have to end up just behind the wheel. I will either route it thought the belly pan to the street side or I will just let it hang free and carry a few feet of simular hose and then when I set up I can run the drain line to a point where it won't flood the area by the door.

The connection from the pictures I have seen is up under the lip and the actual juntion will be accessed through the opening in the roof. Leave an extra couple feet and route as needed once you do the install.
