Exhaust tube not staying in collar/not sealing correctly
We have a Danby A/C (Model number = DPAC90061), and the flex tube for the exhaust has come unscrewed from the collar that attaches to the window exhaust adapter in the slider kit. I screwed it back into the collar, but it doesn't seem to make a tight seal, and ends up leaking the hot exhaust air back into the room. Also, it doesn't seem to screw in tight, as I can feel the air escaping from under the collar and back into the room.
I've tried to rescrew the tube back into the collar repeatedly, and it just falls out on it's own. Unfortunately, this has resulted in no cooling taking place. How do I fix this?
Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Is there a reason not to just go to the Danby site? Support Danby includes phone support, email and "Find Parts" Even if their source is out you should at least be able to find the correct part number, then Google Danby (part number). You could also look to see if generic flexible vinyl tubing/hose can be substituted. It's doubtful that Danby created their own hoses.

Muffler putty, no. If you have it off, take it to the local welder. They can tell you if it is fixable. Usually your best bet is to just spend the money and order a new original equipment replacement part (if a good salvage/used part is not available. Be sure to replace the exhaust gasket in the head when you put the pipe back on. EBAY may be a good source of a good used head pipe.
