Thanks to everyone for the input. This forum is fantastic.


I had no water intrusion from rain. The drain was leaking when the A/C was running. The water ended up in the street side cabinet, right next to the closet. So I sealed up the drain to get it to drain out on the roof. And like Paul, I found the water was accumulated inside the pan, so I drilled holes in the front. I thought it was fixed, but after running the A/C for an hour or two, it started dripping through the return air. The water was actually dripping off the bolt holding the A/C on. So I thought it was getting through the seal, but actually I think it is just running down inside the seal somewhere. I think I need to remove those cups and get it to drain out the original holes again. I plan on opening up everything I can, though, and try to fix the drain tube first.

There is a good thread in here somewhere about those drain tubes. Apparently, there is an elbow down in the tube that comes loose and then they drain inside and come through the ceiling. To fix that you have to take off the inside ceiling and that is a little tough (at least I thought it was). I ended up plugging the tubes (the cups on top) and letting it drain over the roof. A little more clean up on the side from time to time, but not a big problem. Check out that thread from several years ago. A lot of info in there.

Are the inside ceiling panels held on with the christmas tree fasteners as stated earlier? I'm nearly afraid to pry too hard.
