A/C Drain Drips and Stains on Concrete?

Being I have a new concrete slab for our motorhome to park at I am wanting to keep it clean if possible. I have been putting buckets under the drips while we are there and empty them as needed. But what can I do while we are not there. I still keep the A/C's going while we are gone. Eventually these drips will eat a hole in the concrete plus it stains the concrete.

Anyone have better solutions for preventing this?

Paint it or put that rustoleum garage epoxy paint kit on it.

Being we want to stain the driveway at some point is the reason I am wanting to protect it. One of our neighbors just had this done and they have different shades of color where the drips occur. They tried to pressure wash the stains off and it ate away to much of the concrete.

It should be easy to drill a hole near the bottom of your buckets and add some hose to carry the water elsewhere...

When we had our pad constructed with pavers, we left out a 2 x 2 ft area at the rear for the a/c lines to drip into sand and gravel.
