I was cleaning out the drain line on a ROOF TOP SINGLE STAGE REEM:
RSKJA30JK.
Condensor and Evaporator packaged together.
I noticed a lot of condensation off the suction line- cool mode- which is fine- yet its dripping and puddling into the compressor/condensor section.
Been like this for 10 years: shouldnt there be sweat foam on the sunction line?

a.) Can I do this on a pacakged unit- see pic..
b.) I have put them on split units and where condensor suction line is outside of condensor unit.

Thoughts. Might be too simple of a question.

Also the unit evap sheet metal rusting out because the dischage drain line backup up started dripping inside ductwork.
FIXED 11-14-2015:vs_coffee:- who knows how long- a lot of crap cleaned out: frog poop, algae, bacteria, grama's rum cake someone threw on top of roof.
Noticed the evap coil sweating a lot.- see pic

Evap coil is suppose to condensate a lot.

No harm in insulating the suction line.

thanks for the reply: going back up rooftop and use some armaflex on that suction line on my next visit. * didnt like the puddle of water next to compressor motor- it was creating.

Look it all that rust by the SEAM of evap coil nice:
is it worth it too put some primer on that rust?
I have seem A coil attic evaps 20-25 years less rust.

Have a great thanksgiving.
