Trunk line problem

gyrfalcon Member Posts: 167
Hello again !  I was helping my brother in law do some insulation in his Crawlspace and he mentioned the rust on the hvac trunk.  I looked and found it to be totally rotted out in one section, toward one end of the length.  The condensation pipe is dripping right on the sheet metal, rotting it out.  We are having some contractors take a look.  Question, can trunk line sections be removed and replaced at each seam where the S clamps hold the section to the next?

    If it is a standard size, you should be able to pick it up at your local supplier. Don't for get to wear gloves and buy band aids. :)

    yes, add a short piece and a canvas connector to allow for ease of installation.
