Wouldn't you want to remove the rust and then paint the bare metal to stop rust.
Interestingly the metal covers over the wiring and the piano hinges are all bare metal. I guess they assumed a BB would never leak. And it wouldn't have except for the poor A/C unit replacement and lack of maintenance from PO

Try it. You will never use anything else again and get rid of your sandpaper and whatever. If it is just surface rust this is the nuts!!! If it is scaly rust you need to brush it or sand it off to get the loose stuff off, but then apply Ospho and it will amaze you.

I tried Naval Jelly once, a long time ago, and it didn't seem to work very well for me, but the Ospho is killer in my book. Works great. Maybe I just did something wrong with the Naval Jelly Maybe I should have use smooth peanut butter instead of the crunchy?

We used to use ospho to clean the stainless rails on boats. A little goes a long way, stainless only stains less

Question A/C drainage

I need help with the A/C drainage. the second A/C unit seems to be draining in side the wall. I don't know if this is by design or a failure. I can't trace it to any place outside the coach. Has anyone had a look at this?

Check out the third video to help this make more sense.
https://youtu.be/OOdkANDsaNc

Anyone's thoughts on this would be grateful.

The drain hose has come loose from the AC. Pretty common.

Bluebird used an iron fitting on the second a/c drain line where the line goes through the floor (in the wall). The front and rear a/c the plastic line runs all the way through the floor, the centre has a iron barb fitting that rusts shut over time. I had this issue. Had to find the fitting, in the wall at the floor, remove it, splice a plastic line to the existing plastic line, and run it out the bottom of the bus.
If you search the forum I am sure there is a thread on this as that is how I found out about this.
Call me if you want.
