No Drain Tube

I have my 65 Amb.ready to put back together.There is no sign of any kind of drain tube inside coming from the air unit.Have never tested the unit,so not sure if it works.
It is an older Coleman Mach.I will eventually replace for a low profile something when it quits.Do I need to put a tube in the wall and what size?

Not sure, but to keep thread alive...

Many versions included drain tube running from mounting "Pan" around A/C unit down between double walls of trailer, and dumping out around wheel wells... I can confirm that was design for 1980's and newer models...


In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...

Yes...inside the wall now while your at that point. I think its 1/2 inch hose (clear tubing from HD is perfect). Check the pan drain fitting size.
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

drain hose

An AC drain line was installed in every model Airstream built, starting with the 1969 models, as standard equipment.
