So...after a year of not needing AC when we camped we just returned from our annual trip to Tybee Island. Before we left I was determined to make sure the condensation problem from last year didn't repeat itself. I installed a new continuous piece of hose from the plug on the drip pan, routed it through the inner skin into the overhead cabinets, through the wardrobe and out the bottom, paying attention to the "fall" of the drain tube and making sure gravity would do it's job.
- The majority of the condensation was draining on to the ground and the installation of the new tube worked perfectly.
- There's a small leak where the drain plug is attached to the drip pan. There's caulking around the plug and the drip is very slight but enough to where we had to keep a towel on the floor to absorb the water and replace it with a dry one every few hours. This work was done at the dealer who installed the unit for me last spring.
The next question is- Is there a product that will adhere to the caulk that's already there and form a bond? Obviously it would be best to have the pan on a work bench, remove the caulk, clean and completely re-do the plug but that's not practical. I think I know the answer about applying another product on top of one that's not doing it's job but I figured I'd ask for some opinions anyway
