Somewhere I've read a thread about sealing the scuttle and using P section extrusion from this company.

That link actually helps me with a problem with my rooftop aircon unit. The Sundance is useless at roof drainage, and the water level can get high enough to go into the vents on the side, which then leaks inside. I have been looking for something to sort this for ages.
The L seal on the link is perfect, I will attach this to the side of the unit and seal it, giving an extra 20mm depth to the vents, hopefully this will cure the problem.

Next option is a silicon sealant nozzle. These are 16mm and a good tight fit if scuttle is drilled with a new 16mm speed bit.

This would accomodate larger hose.

Then secured with 16mm star washer
