A/C dripping on wrong side...

Is our ac supposed to look like this? I was expecting it to be flush and have seals all the way around.

Also, the drip rails are on the back side, but sometimes it leaks condensation smack dab in the middle of the entrance side. Is that because the trailer is unlevel? Or is the roof sinking? I haven't been on top yet to know, but everything I can feel is solid.

Is this a common problem?

It just depends on how you're parked. Water will run towards the lowest point. I wouldn't worry about it unless you do find a low spot.

Yes your AC should look like that. There is or should be a rubber seal around the hole in the roof, not around the entire unit. The flow of water is controlled by gravity and it will flow to the lowest side or end.

So if I raise the entrance side a few inches, it should go the other way?

No wrong side. gravity will decide where the condensate runs. Which ever the pitch of the roof. Be sure your rain gutters are clear, especially where the awning brackets are.
