Dometic penguin "pan base" ?????

Just removed the AC today trying to find a leak.

The AC unit is a Dometic Penguin model # 600315.321 I am guessing mid 1990's, because thats when the trailer was redone.

The plastic "pan base???" that collects all the condensation, and is below the entire unit is cracked in several places.

Is this a common problem??

Any idea where I can purchase a new one?

What is the correct name for this part?

Any info is greatly appreciated
Thanks Larry B

We have the Dometic units. Someone screwed-up the installation. The Airstream part number we have for the "A/C Pan for roof air" is 961270. Your RV guy will prolly have to order through AS.

You can avoid using a plastic base pan entirely by installing a Dometic auxiliary drain kit, part # 3107688.016.

These kits are used on just about every Duotherm installation that requires the use of an internal drain hose like Airstreams and most other quality RVs have.

The kit consists of 2 catch cups that are attached directly beneath the drains. These cups have molded-in nipples which connect to the supplied tubing. The water drains from the tubing via a 'T' fitting that connects to the interior drain hose. An extra gasket is also included to raise the unit slightly to provide clearance for the drain cups.

You might check it out!

They DO work well!!

Thanks all for the responses, I called AS today and they told me I had to purchase from a AS dealer. Paid 70 bux plus shipping for a new drain pan. I was told I should have it in 3-5 days. Hopefully It will arrive before the weekend so I can put her back together. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will solve my leak over the kitchen sink. Its really the only place left!

Thanks again,
Larry B

Remember to use a small air compressor on the lower drain every few seasons, especially if pine/fir needles are in your area.
