Roof Air Condensate Control ?

Good Morning
I have a 05 TS Select with 3 15000 Btu Penguin Units Mounted on the roof.
We are here in South florida (((High Humidity)) My issue is How do you guys control the Condensate running on the roof. when coach is level all three A/c condensates run in different directions.

Has anyone any ideas on controlling the runoff ?
Can drain hoses be attached to the Pans ?

What do other MFR do Just let it run all over Roof ?

Seems a Pan could be designed to Have a Hose attached to it better the water running off the unit keeping it dirty all the time.

Thanks for any suggestions in advance

It seems to me that the converter should make provision for this when the unit is built - it would have been easy to deal with at that time. My recent Vogue had channels that delivered the condensation on the groud where it belonged.

Higher-end models often have internal drain lines, but most coaches just let the condensate run wherever. You can direct it a bit by making the coach slightly off-level - it doesn't take much and you won't ever notice it inside.

My American Tradition has a pan under the a/c to catch the water plus a pump that delivers it to a drain line that comes down through the sidewall and empties onto the ground.
