    Hi. I saw a similar thread but I figure I'd make a post about my thermo king. It's having a little trouble cooling. And it is not draining from the drain tubes. Water just drips wherever and its a lot of water. Also gets wet inside trailer. I expect drain tubes are clogged but I need specific instructions or pictures of where to access these lines and how to disconnect. Thank you so much. I'm 99% sure this is the issue.

    The tubes are just tie strapped around the plastic drains above the engine.Cut off tie straps and pull the hoses off.You should also remove evaporator panel and clear out drain pan of debris.Use a coat hangar to shove through drains and clear out.Make sure the hoses themselves are clear as well.

    I did clear debri from the panel inside the trailer. So that's good. The hoses . I can see on the driver side where it connects...I think but ita definitely a clog high up. They're clear when I stick wire from the bottom..having trouble getting to top of drain hoses

    Remove the panel again and dump a bucket of water in the drain pan if it runs out the hoses then you know nothing is clogged
