A/C condensation lines

My motorhome has plastic tubes that route A/C condensation to back of the coach. Has anyone had these tubes clog up & what was the procedure to clean out the blockage?

Usually, it takes an air compressor and a few minutes to clear them.

Is there an access at the A/C unit or do you blow it from the tubes at the back of the coach?

A little compressed air followed by some bleach in the line.

I will echo the suggestion to bleach the lines.. Often algae can grow in a mosit environment... Adding bleach will kill it off.

We had this problem on an industrial A/C... I added some swimming pool chlorine tablets to the drip pan and it was a long, long long time returning.
