2005 MADP AC roof drains?

Does the 2005 Mountain Aire have internal AC drains for the roof AC units or is it supposed to drain out over the roof and down the sides? Ours drains over the sides and I was hoping I could eliminate the eternal dripping down the sides. Thanks for your help.

Rick, you should have water gutter's that run front to the rear of the roof and when leveled properly the water should drip off the rear water channels. Have you been up and looked at yours to see if they are blocked and over flowing?

Haven't been up on the roof in a while. I know we're down a bit at the front so that will likely account for the drips off the front of the gutters. Being lazy/complacent when leveling does make a difference. Thanks for the advice. I'm the cause of my own problem. LOL

Mine (I assume) was setup at the factory when it auto levels itself to drain the a/c water off the drivers side rear along with rain water unless it rains hard then both rear channels run water. Did you use the auto level or did you do it manually?

My 2005 MADP 4304 has internal drains. Open your engine compartment and as you are looking in at it the drain lines are on the right hand side and have the ends crimped to keep bugs out. They are in the right rear corner. When I am level I have virtually zero water dripping from my coach anywhere except out the drain lines.

I learned something again today, Thanks Mrchips! Rick might have the same system as you and his are plugged of and the pans in the A/C systems are over flowing onto the roof. Let us know what you find out Rick.

If you do find drian lines as discribed and no water coming from them than you need to take covers off AC's and check to see if they are plugged.
AC's with out them have drain holes in AC base, for roof top draining, that plug at times also and water collected in drip pan will be blown into the ceiling duct work and drip through your ceiling.
