I just had a replacement done from moanco, and looks like they installed the wrong unit, it did not have a drain for the tube inside the coach, can i just drill my own w/ a rubber gasket.. instead of dealing with them taking it back out and replacing.. thanks
Over sight from the teck. Most units are designed to drain off the side of the coach. If you do not want to take it back. Installation as your speaking of is the only solution. Other wise the unit is going to drain down the side of the coach.

If you look inside the exterior part you should see a copper tube(part of the refrigeration tubing) that rests horizontally under this water. The water cools the freon inside that copper tube. That's why some models don't have a drain there.
There are grooves on both sides of ac unit on a camper and it drains down the roof to a little gutter that travels the water towards end of camper and drains. Most of the time down the side of camper, but if these Grove are stopped up it will not allow it to drain and cause it to overflow inside camper. If filter is very stopped up or evaporator coil is stopped up, fan not running, low on refrigerant, or having the thermostat set way to low can cause it to freeze up and when this water thaws out it is too much for the drain to handle and also ice could be sticking being the drain pan melting causing it to go in your camper. I would check filter and those drain grooves first.
Sounds like your water drain line is plugged. There should be a bundle of wires tubes and a drain hose that goes through the wall to the outside unit. The water drain hose should split off outside and drain on the ground. You should check that the drain hose is not plugged or kinked somewhere. The hose must also slope downwards from the inside unit to where it drains outside. You can check if the hose is plugged by blowing into it if you can reach the hose outside. You should be able to easily blow through the tubing back into the house. I have done this with this type of unit at night (determined to get it working), and was able to get it to start draining properly. Before I got it to start draining, I had the same waterfall that you are seeing. The unit had been off all winter. Hope this helps.
Air conditioners wring moisture from the surrounding air that collects in a pan under the cooling coil in the inside unit.
Chances are that the condensate drain is plugged or the drain pan is plugged. Look for a hose that exits the inside unit and runs to a drain. You can follow it back to the drain pan of the A/C unit. If there is water sitting in the pan, then either the hose or pan or both are plugged.
Turn the unit off, get a small bucket and remove the drain tube. Catch the water in the bucket. Blow through the drain line until it's clear. If the thought of doing this is too repulsive, then use an air compressor or even a manual tire pump. Now check the drain pan in the unit for debris and remove as much as possible from the pan and the drain fitting.
Both the pan and drain line should be checked at the beginning of each cooling season.
most central a/c units have a drain that either goes into the house drain system or they have a pump with a float activated switch to pump water out once full. to identify you must find your air handler ( the unit that blows air into the house) remove the lower panel and look for one of the foremantioned drain systems. could be a simple mold problem, mold tends to build in the drain tubes because the flow of water is relatively low.
You either have a refrigerant leak or a dirty inside coil or a slow running inside blower motor. Set the thermostat for heat and run it until all the ice is thawed. Then check the incoming air side of the coil for lint and dirt. Check the fan motor for proper speed. If you have service gauges your low side pressure should be approximately 68 psi. If lower you have a leak.
All air conditioning units remove moister from the air.Which is good,it helps the moister on your skin evaporate faster,and helps cool you down.If its a central heat/cooling unit it should have some form of drain pipe to carry this moister away from the unit.Usually a white pvc tubing. Sometimes these become clogged with dirt,or even believe it not algae.If there is no drain someone didn't do the job right.(clean the gunk out of the pipe,or replace the tubing). If your talking about a window unit the unit will drain out the back of the unit,but the air conditioner has to be tilted in such a way that any water inside the unit will flow toward the back of the unit. (simply lower the outside end of the unit a little lower than the side stuck in the window).I see you mentioned a vent so you are probably talking about a air handling unit in your home.The vent should just be for fresh air.If you have a very tight house an air handling unit will be designed to bring fresh air into the house(to keep your air fresh).That is usually its only function.There should also be a small drain pipe leaving the unit somewhere.Some modern units even have a back up drain if the first clogs,and maybe even a signal that tells you the first pipe is clogged.
There is a drain tube that usually runs to the outside that is suposed to carry the water away from the unit. It may be plugged. You could use a shop-vac from the outside to pull it through. If you have compressed air you can blow the obstruction out to the inside. Be aware this could make a mess on the inside! After clearing the drain line I would leave the unit off for an hour or so just in case there was any frost building. Then turn the unit back on. If it continues to get wet then the unit may not be leveled correct, or maybe it is low on refrigerant causing the frost on the inside.
the fan motor bearings need lub....the shaft has a tiny access hole to put some oil into. because the fan shaft is slowing down, it is putting more strain on the voltage current, and eventually the internal breaker shuts down the ac........plus your condenser is not getting enough air accross it, compressor heats up, and it too will shut the unit down......older units have to be oiled every year, and eventually it too will fail, and a new blower motor assembly is needed or replace the ac unit.....blower motor units are around $130....now you install it or pay to have it done at around another $150 labor,,,,,try yourself, if it fails then call the tech........let me know ..ray..email@example.com
