cva34, just paint as close and as smooth as possible. Please, keep the drains (one on each side toward the front) clear.

What do the “A/C drains” look like? Do I need to take the shroud off to see these? I cleaned the roof today in hopes of sealing it with koolseal tomorrow-roof looks great-hopefully the weather will cooperate!

The drains are just holes in the a/c pan. Have to take the cover off to access them.

Thx to all above ;I did know about (but any info is always welcome)..If and when I do remove ac and pan I plan to solder /braze/epoxy in drain tubes to each and run to outer edge /at roof level...That way I can blow them out now and then w/ air ..and or slip hose on and direct DRIP off roof if I want

I do like the idea of drain tubes coming off the roof. I've got a nice rust stain from the water running down the side of the RV (any suggestions on rust stain removal?).

But, I'd caution about mud daubers....they love to build nests in little tubes! I suspect that's why the pan drains aren't tubes, but flat depressions coming off the pan. But, it's certainly your call, don't mean to be nit-picky!

Thanks, I've heard of Barkeeper's Friend, but never used it. Looks like I'll be giving it a try in the spring!

Good luck!

you might try stuffing some bits of steel wool up those tubes to block those pesky mud bugs...they'll get into everything to build a nest...I once bought a 1974 Dodge Dart from a friend who lives out in the country near LaGrange Tx...the car had been stored under a big oak tree for about 5 years and had,n't run since that time when I went to get it. I was amazed the we got it to start and I drove it back to Austin where I had a friend tune it up....he found a mud dobber nest down inside the carberator! I drove it home like that....man those old slant sixes were bullet proof.....
