2 roof panel questions

1. Is the a/c supposed to drain down the outside?

2. I have several dents/dings/wrinkles on my roof panel in addition to a depression around the antenna mount that is leaking; can the entire roof panel be replaced?

The AC is supposed to drain thru a drain tube, and not run off the roof.

All exterior sheetmetal panels can be replaced, in the field.

The A/C should have a drain tube. If water is leaking in from the A/C, check to make sure the drain tube isn't blocked.

From what I've read on these forums, most any panel can be replaced but some require a lot more work than others. It may be much less work to remove some of the "wrinkles" unless they are creases by using a dent puller. Take a look at this thread. The area around your antenna may be fixable as well without replacing the panel.

Hopefully, others will chime in with their recommendations.
