Drain adapter for LoPro Carrier A/C

Installed new Carrier 13.5 LP AC , have 1/2" drain hose installed. The Owner's Guide for Ceiling unit shows a optional drain adapter, which does not come with unit. Have talked to several Carrier dealers and they do not know what I am referring to. Has anyone else had this problem and can the proper drain adapter be obtained from somewhere ? Thanks

I called the phone number on Carrier's shipping ticket and the person there knew exactly what I wanted . She shipped it right out with no cost. Problem solved.

Hi Thom,

Welcome to the forums, too. I plan to upgrade to a Carrier 15,000 unit as soon as finances allow. Iíll keep this in mind when I do. Can you supply the number here?

The part # number is 34-500-74-00. The phone number is 717 767 3328. This part is only used for the Low Profile model. The standard model uses "Slinger Tech " ( no drain hose )

Thanks Thom,

I am not sure whether I will go standard or low profile. I have seen other threads that suggest the “Slinger Tech” does not work as well in high humidity, resulting in drainage down the side of the coach.

Heat Pump Model

If I remember correctly, the heat pump model has a drain adapter also. It is a low proflie unit. The Carrier brand is a good choice. I hope it keeps you and the AS cool.

Don't Forget.................

that when you install a Carrier Air V lo-profile model, there are 2 drain holes already present in the evaporator drip pan that will channel the condensate on to your roof. These holes must be plugged for effective use of the center drain and fitting for complete draining thru your internal drain hose.

To access these holes, you remove the shroud and then remove the plastic cover over the evaporator section (front cover) by removing the hold-dowm screw at the capacitor cover (left side facing the unit) and then unclipping the entire cover. The drain holes will be at either side of the white plastic pan beneath the evaporator coils. The center hole (which needs to be drilled out) will also be obvious at this point.

Use SikaFlex or Vulkem to plug the holes (NO SILICONE!). I put a piece of aluminum tape across the bottom of the holes to provide a base so the sealant can set and fill the drain holes. Keep the sealant flush with the drain pan suface so you won't interrupt the flow of the condensate thru the pan.

Hi Bill,

Most of the information about the Carriers I have seen indicates that they are actually lighter than others. If you are replacing an AC, why do you need any additional bracing?

Get 2" aluminum 'U' channel from a local metals place or from McMaster-Carr. Then cut to size and rivet in it place from both the top and botton skins around the entire 14" X 14" opening. I've done a few of these on Airstreams, so feel free to contact me about specific questions. The bracing and the drain tube attachment are the only real peculiarities with Airstream installs.

If you're replacing an existing unit, it should be a snap. If not, it's a little more involved, but still not rocket science.
