It's a Delta unit the leak was coming from underneath the wall into the main hallway. It was intermittent so I don't think it was the drain. Bad part is their is no access from behind the wall.

I bought a new one and it could not cool the trailer, took hours to bring the temp down just a little bit, old original one worked way better! Just as loud as the old one too.. It's junk to me

I had a old 32 yr old 15BTU Coleman a/c on the front, but it could not keep up with the Texas heat. I rewired to 50 amp and place a 2nd Dometic a/c on the back. I must agree with Bibbs... A noisy sucker :>( Only 3 years of light use and the Dometic lost Freon. I replaced them both. Now I have 2 15BTU Coleman a/c... "I Shell Never Be Hot Again"

bet that dude was R12 and probable low on gas. Mine, a 2005 15K btu is R22 and seems to do a good job after cleaning both indoor and outdoor coils last year. The fins can get so dirty they do not absorb or release heat well during operation.

I have a Bullet Piercing Valve I was going to add to check Freon pressures when it finally get warm around here and not raining..

anyone know the Delta T across the coil.. in home systems its 20 more or less across the coil.

guess Coleman might be the go to for replacements.

18-22F but be really careful with this piercing valves. They are only meant for temporary use to drain a system before working on it...to be replaced by permanent Schrader valves later and quickly become a leak source if left in place
