Help - Air conditioner drain

The plastic drain under my air conditioner has cracked on my 1992 Sovereign. It now leaks when we run the A/C. It is the light grey piece in the photo. You can see where the drain line is connected. Can anyone tell me the part number? Can anyone tell me where I can buy / order it? Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Respectfully, David Cunningham

I believe you will find that pan is now an obsolete part. You will need to upgrade to the Dometic cup system. FYI, the Dometic cup kit will only come with one 14" gasket. You will need two.

Yes, the drain pan was discontinued in 2017. I think the "standard" now is the capture cups system. You might find it hard to find those as well, just the supply chain issue of the day. There are lots of threads on here about installation of the cups try searching for "condensate cups" and you should find plenty of hits.

good luck!

Just had same problem. Broken out completely like yours. Could not get parts. Even if you get cups you need to lift ac from top. Nobody I tried had cups in stock last month.

I fixed mine. Went to Lowe’s. I used flex seal caulk to glue it in. Then flex seal tape over the larger voids and to keep from getting caulk in the drain line. Then flex seal caulk generously. It works fine now and does not leak.

I bought a Dometic cup kit less than a month ago from an eBay vendor.

I just looked back at the pics, and don't see the crack. Goop it up with some silicone and see what happens. Much easier than replacing the pan.

good luck!

I also had the AC drain leak due to a crack. I used J B Weld to mend and
seal the crack. Has worked fine for past 6 months and the repair took about
an hour and $5.
Good luck

Will repair

I am going to go with a 3M epoxy inside and out. After seeing the cup system I decided to repair what I have. I do not think the gaskets on the cup system will last as well as my existing pan. Thanks to all that offered their views. David

Epoxy…

I tried several (maybe 5?) sealants/adhesives on my old one. JB plasticweld did the trick for me. Regular JB weld would not adhere.

I’ve now switched to the cups with a new AC. They are working fine as well.
