I have releveled the coach and find a steady flow of water from the heat pump operation...most of it drips right onto my mat by the entry door!..Should that condensate go where the AC water goes? Why am I wet up front? I adjusted the coach so the bubble level is pretty centered on the freezer floor.

Open the cover for AC on roof you may have water collected in drip pan and the blowers are blowing drips of water out of pan into your duct work. The drip holes maybe plugged or if you have drip tubes they maybe plugged.

When I level the MH, I always have the front just a little high to prevent exactly what you're describing.

Now all that water runs to the back and drips there.

It doesn't take much to redirect the water, and the slight amount is not noticeable without a bubble level.

Is it normal for the heat pump condensate to run onto the roof vs going down the AC condensate tube?

If you have a tube everything should be going down that tube.

Is your pan full of water needs to drain out or blower is going to blow water down your duct work. Try leveling as someone said drop your rear end.

I had this problem last summer. My dealer blew out the roof drains (from the bottom outlets) and reset the leveling system. We suspect that the front drain line that runs along the roof line may not be pitched correctly from front to back. Raising the front or lowering the rear corrected the problem.

Hi Jerry...the funny thing is the AC condensate comes out of ONE rear tube, never off the roof. Does the heat pump water form in a different location? or maybe my drain is plugged...I have an air compressor...may play with it today..thanks
