AC condensation drip pooling on roof

The awning on my Georgetown has a mounting bracket on the roof where condensation from the ac pools before rolling off. It makes me nervous that water is sitting next to holes in the roof.

Two questions:
One, am I justified in my concern?
Two, what can I do about it? I was thinking of some sort of diversion.

I really appreciate the help from the forum!

If the bracket has the correct sealant around the mount screws, there should be no problems.

If your concerned that there isn't enough sealant , or maybe in-correct sealant , could you post a picture.

If you do not trust the sealant to work or do not want to always have it on your mind and checking seal. Eternabond tape EternaBond RoofSeal is your answer. If you apply it correctly you do not need to worry or keep checking for a good seal.

You could pitch the water to the other side or back with your jacks.

Thanks for the reassurance. I just thought it was an interesting design. I'm really not sure why they put extra holes in the roof when they could have the awning connected to the drip rail. Hopefully, the sealant they used can be trusted. Thanks again!
