AC Drain Pan

Ok I have searched and found threads that's are close or mention what I'm looking for but nothing specific so I apologize in advance. I have a 264bh that I have temporarily fixed where the drain pan for the AC on the roof is sitting flat on the roof with no room for the water to run out of the drain hole. Any good ideas for fixes?

I think i may have found other posts with similar issue but no real mods to mention other than drilling holes. I took a rubber hose washer and cut a chunk out to make a "C" shape out of it and placed under the hole. Gonnna Climb up there again this eve and see if i can find a better way to "Mod" this as an improvement.

Sounds like you need a new gasket. The original one has probably been over-tightened or collapsed do to age. If the gasket is torqued correctly there should be about 1/2-3/4 in space between the roof and the pan.

Ill double check the gasket, found the problem 1st time using after roof was replaced. Wondering if a tighter gasket is better in the long run?

Not really, the new gaskets actually have a tab that tells you when to stop pulling it down.

Over tightening the gasket can cause leaks just as a loose one. Make sure ots snug but not overly cranked down. I have a detailed thread on here for swaping out the gasket somewhere.
