    On a 1996 50 Post, does the AC condensation drain overboard or into the bilge?
    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    In my ancient Post, the condensate drain is teed into the AC water outlet. Apparently a venturi effect carries the condensate overboard with the condenser cooling water.

    I would bet it drains into the shower sump. Thats were all my units drain into on my 53. I highly doubt it would just drain into the bilge.

    Im not sure where the sump is on a 96 - 50, but the lines are normally 1/2" and they come into the top of the sump lid on many models.

    Try to follow the hose. You could try blowing the drain out with water or air. At that age it is also highly possible the drain hose is split somewhere.

    I have an 84 43. I think our Salon AC setup is very similar. Mine has clogged before coming into the upper bunk. Mine has a small access panel over the upper bunk. About 6-8 screws and it comes out. I have a white hose, with a Tee that connects the AC condenser for the side stateroom. Disconnect the hose from the T and blow into the hose going up to the salon drain. Should see junk and a bunch of water come back out. Hope this helps.
