    Quick question, does Fluid Film be another alternative to this problem? I did this mod but my concern is that its pulling and pressuring the little OEM drain hose that sticks out from the truck. Not really sure what this OEM hose is being held from the inside, but my fear is while driving bouncing taking holes etc will eventually do some damages and perhaps yank the oem drain hose out.

    Any thoughts or second alternative other than the A/C drain mod??

    As long as you keep the hose zip tied in place away from heat sources as best as possible, you'll be fine.

    Boeshield T-9 spray. It's similar to fluid film, it's purpose is the same which is to prevent rust and corrosion.

    This mod was done within the first hour of me owning the truck....I opted for a clear lighter weight piece of tubing. Then I fluid filmed the shit out of the truck.
