Air conditioner run off

What if anything does anyone do about water drainage from air conditioner? Ours seems to run off onto awning arm bracket and then down. Had to move table because of drip. Do you try to have slight leveling pitch to other side?

In my experience the runoff goes where the gravity and breeze take it. The rig could be perfectly level and it may run off in one place in the morning and another in the evening.

If by chance your roof is creased and that's contributing to a single-point runoff you could make a small diverter dam (even a 1/4 inch high will do) out of sealant to redirect the water. Run a straight or slightly curved bead - don't dam the water to the point that it back floods ...

I level-up my coach, then raise up the front end just a touch to ensure the run-off goes towards the back of the coach. I may also raise up the passenger side just a touch as well to keep the water away from the awning. Don't seem to notice the difference inside of the leveling being tweaked.

I put EZE Gutter down each side to channel the water to the back. Very easy to install, just clean area, peel and stick. You can get it on amazon.

It should run to the corner where the gutter Ann. Gutter is a term to describe that little tiny channel that runs along the top of the couch. Many times debris will get stuck inside and cause the water to come down prematurely check that to be clean

This is a good excuse to buy an upgraded coach model. High end coaches usually have a drain tubes that catch the a/c condensation and carry it away, dripping out under the coach somewhere.

Until they plug up, (which is often).

I level my coach for the sake if the absorption refrigerator and let the A/C condensate run off wherever it wants to.

I move my table, it's the easiest and least expensive thing to do.

Mine have been running fine for 13 years now. Your mileage may vary!

Add some gutter extensions to the gutters that way it drips away from the side of the coach.

I attempted to do this but the only extensions I could find do not fit properly on my gutter rail. I still have them but need to cut them and glop on the silicone in an attempt to make them work.
