okay, okay... the a/c on my VTX works fine providing the wheels are moving ! It's only when stopped in the summer, at those long traffic lights that it doesn't work.

But I do have a bit of an OT question... living in south georgia, central air/heat unit's intake is dripping pretty heavily...

Granted, it's hot/humid, but the way the unit is set up, the main ventwork is near the garage wall and is leaking out into the garage in noticable puddles...

There is this PVC pipe that I'm thinking is an overflow pipe that ends up out by the unit itself...

Hoping this is just stopped up, etc ?

Any ideas ? Can I just run a small drain snake up into this and maybe clear it ? or maybe use an air compressor and try and blow it out ? Vacuum ?

I realize it is an off topic... I apologize... and if no one answers I'll respect and understand that.

Thanks again...David - South Georgia

Ths is your condensate line. You can run a snake, but I would do it from the evaperator coil down. Once you are sure it is clear, run some bleach diluted with water thru it.

I had the same thing happen. Now I clean it out twice a year.

On a similar note. Watch your insulation on your air ducts. We just had to replace a 36 X 59 piece of ceiling sheetrock. Seems the insulation got torn on the underside of the duct leading to the kitchen and the condensation had been leaking onto the ceiling. VERY messy job.

Do the fixes as mentioned, I drilled a hole in mine and pour in some bleach when I can think of it, was suppose to have a fitting for this but they forgot to install. Make sure the drop on the line is downhill. The line gets clogged with mold or algae. Good Luck

+1 on all of the above.

As another step in maintenence you can check the condensor coil inside the unit in the house. Depending on it's age if it gets alot of dust build up it will start to freeze. If it's very dusty try vacuming it. If it's frozen turn it off till it thaws then clean it.
