Coleman A/C replacing Coleman A/C?

Thanks all for holding my hand through this. If I am replacing a Coleman Delta TX, which I'm not sure if it is OE, with a Coleman Mach 8, is there a "drip pan" that I should be getting from AS or Coleman. Haven't been able find an RV shop local (3hrs any direction) that wants any part in working on my unit. Left phone and email messages with Colin Hyde in Northern NY and hopefully he will call back, but just in case, looking at replacing this myself. It seems that a same brand replace should be fairly easy, but I'm sure there is some "new and improved" factors that I'm not aware of, just thought I would start with the drip pan since many people talk about it and I want to connect back to the original drain tube. Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated...

No drip pan. There is a small "kit" you have to order. It is a small elbow fitting that the drip line will attach to. It will place the drip line connect in an odd , front right, position so be aware of that and have enough extra line available to reach that point. All else is standard and it will fit the old 14 x 14 hole perfectly. Unless you have a safe and easy way to lift the AC up top really try to find a shop to do it. A good horse trailer shop will do because they install AC units in some of their high end units. I use a tractor with a front end loader and go slow and careful.
