It is some kind of drain but the tubing looks more like electrical conduit. It crumbles anywhere you touch it.
Anyone know what this is?
It sounds as if it is the condensate line from your refrigerator, and the problem with it is similar to what I found with mine.... it was a cheap, hard-plastic drainline that disentegrated due to heat from the nearby boiler. This will allow condensate to drain onto the shelf and run into the coach and cause floor rot!
You should replace it with high quality hose suitable for under-the-hood automotive use. Vacuum hose of the proper size (3/8" ?) should work (although I used polyvinyl encased in aircraft fire-sleeve.)

PS: This should actually be discussed in a different thread than a disussion regarding RV Dealers, hopefully a moderator might see it. good luck with the repair.

You might check out Paul Mayeux at A&P Vintage Trailer Works in Paradise, TX (close in and just Northwest of DFW). They can literally fix anything from building a new frame and interior to doing custom cabinet work. He has lots of "mature" Airstreams on his place undergoing service and repairs. (817-919-3651)

He has done all of our modifications (AM Solar system, disc brakes, instant on water heater, new flooring cover etc)and took care of all our factory defects using better parts than the originals.

Ditto X10. Handiman work (at best), for professional prices.

I had heard of A&P Vintage Trailer Works but thought they only did restorations. I will talk to Paul about the water pump and refer. Maybe he can also help me find the rest of my leaks.
Thanks switz

North Dallas RV

Hi, just read all these post about dallas rv and getting ready to deliver my 65 overlander to have a new ac unit installed. Hoping I have a good experience since this is the first effort to do some repairs since buying our AS in July of last year.anyone have any suggestion or ideas on this subject ? Our AS didn't have a ac unit and being from Texas its a must have.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated , thanks

See my post #17 above relating to work on your vintage trailer. Paul does your type of a job all the time.

I took switz's advise and took my trailer to Paul at A&P Vintage Trailer Works. They were able to repair my pump, refer and also did a pressure leak test. I was very happy with their work.
