HVAC drain

I have searched the forum and cannot find what I need. On my 2006 19' Bambi, I have the drain running from the wheelwell, up through the unit inside of trailer, to the roof. I didn't want to take the cover off unless necessary to clean the drain hose. And, I didn't want to put too much pressure blowing or forcing water from below, through the tube because I do not want to create a leak or damage something. Any advice? Thanks much. Tom

I recently had mine stop up to the point it was leaking water inside the trailer. I used a shop vacuum cleaner after the A/C unit had been running for a while and sucked out the water and whatever was in the line stopping it up. Couldn't actually attach the vacuum to the little pipe, but used my hand around it to get it to work.

This was good because I didn't have to take anything apart.

Good luck with yours.

Shop vac outside.

Buy hand pump to push Clorox bleach and water up the pipe. Should drain normally

Thank ya both. I will get a pump tomorrow. For future reference, can someone let me know where the drain is located on the roof? In other words, is the drain hole accessable (easily) by removing the cover. My unit is the standard unit (2006) installed at factory. Is it possible to blow the tube out similar to the house HVAC drain--from unit to outside--simple to do?

My unit is a Dometic Penquin, which I see someone else is having the same problem. Sorry if I duplicate.
