Ok here goes. I am so very lost. I have two Aistreams, a 1959
Fly Cloud, and a 1972 Tradewind. Both will be needing new air conditions. The 59 is first, not even the fan works on it. I checked out Camping World last week when they had their sale on AC units with a free install. I was considering the High Efficeincy Brisk Air model because it only uses 10 AMP. I was told by the manager that I would need a drip pan from another source. The old unit is a coleman. Ok, from reading and searches I am more lost now than when I started. First it seems like the drip pan is not offered but for a few different types of AC units and thats not clear about model year. I am more than sure that in 1959
Airstream had no plans for AC to be used. Along the line someone added the ac mounted right now, but not sure about any drip lines or pans. I dont see any water lines running down it, but its not polished yet. I would like to use a unit needing less AMPs because I cant say the old wiring makes sense to me, this unit is still wired outside to plug in a 15 AMP source. I am looking for a possible second plug just for the AC. I am also considering a carrier unit because I read no drip pan was needed. For the small size of this Airstream I think the 13,500 rating is fine, but even reading up on those has me scratching my head and trying to figure out a working plan. I am on a very fixed budget, so without cutting corners I want to figure this out. On here I read the Carrier units could be modified to conect in with the drain lines, which I am sure my Tradewind has, but not sure on the older Flying Cloud. I live in Florida where it hot and it rains a lot and the ac is needed. Any help on ideas will be great. I was thinking about going to the Rally in Perry, but not sure I can make that happen, so I wont be getting any good ideas that way. I even consider having the ac swapped there, but wasn't sure what to expect on vendors or even cost.
