is the a/c unit too high?

yeah, I have pics now but I also have questions now...it seems to me that the unit is sitting too high on top the trailer. It's true that this is taken from below so I'm not sure what it looks like from straight at it so maybe it's just the angle but I don't think I expected to be able to see the cups and it doesn't look like the gaskets have the proper compression...any opinions on the height?

otherwise I am pleased and it works and looks nice inside.

thanks cwf...I see your cups too and I was more up in the air (bed of our truck) than from the ground with our pic so I guess all is well. still, I was surprised and disappointed to see so much of the air unit. had I known I would have painted it when I painted the shroud! the shroud matches nicely but its interrupted by the gray 'band' all around. ah, the pickiness of ocd!

on another note, it turns out that the po's cut the condensate line and shoved it up into the trailer :P so the water was draining out of every hole it could find. we discovered that shortly after starting it yesterday so that was today's fix. we were able to get a larger tube to fit over the original and it appears nice and snug. we're doing our final test now. 1/2 hour in to it and the water is only draining from the proper line but we'll continue to test for a few hours. with all the humidity it's almost raining out of the line...haha...then we'll mark the tubing and keep our eye on it to make sure it stays put.

so, for the first time since we brought her home I was able to put stuff in and know I won't have to take it all out. hooray! plus, I'll be partying in there tonight even though tomorrow/Monday I may be sorry.
