Armstrong drain lines

The Armstrong A/C ran fine for 2 hrs. this weekend but I noticed at one point that water was running down the side of my '77 Excella. Anyone know where the drain lines run from the pan and how to access them?

Remove the interior shroud. You will see the drain line attached to the drain pan. Should be on the road side of the pan. You can run some air through it to clean it out. The other end of the drain should be behind the left rear wheel.

AC suggestions?

HELP.

Hello Andy. Thanks for all your time in here as a volunteer instructor in "School Airstream". Was wondering what brand of AC you like/prefer in replacing the Armstrong unit. Im looking at a vintage AS that the seller states needs a new unit. Of the new ones available, is any brand better than the others at being easier to retrofit? Ive looked at specs on the Coleman, CarrierAirV, and Penguin but Im not sure how tough they may be to fit the roof of a '64 Sovereign in the spot where the Armstrong is now. A penny for your (or anyone else's) thoughts. Thank you.

What is wrong with the old unit? They can be repaired. Most shops will tell you an AC is history and needs to be replaced. Checking your unit out takes about 5 minutes. There could be a bad relay, or condenser, etc.
If you choose to replace it, you are stuck with the Penguin, as it is the only unit that Airstream has a drain pan for.
If you don't mind water running down the sides, then you can use most any unit.
However, regardless of which unit you may choose, the roof "MUST" be beefed up with 2 horizontal stringers that are attached to the fore and aft main bows, where the AC will be located.

Andy
