A/C Condensation Drainage Control

While we have a 2016 Coachman Leprechaun I believe the issue probably impacts others. When we use our AC unit on our MH there is condensation drainage from the unit. The issue is that depending on how the MH is balanced (no leveling jacks) the drainage may roll off of the roof where it is not wanted. Is it possible to add a drainage line that can be removed for travel and flexible enough to route the condensation where desired.

I'm not sure about your roof air unit ; but the drain location on my two roof air conditioners is so close to the roof and so far under the housing as to make hooking up a tube impossible .
Have you been on the roof while there is water draining from the unit ?

Some models of air conditioners can be fitted with condensate pumps but whether or not they can be added is unknown. Check with the manufacturer.

You can also use some stick on rain gutter material to divert the drips or do like most of and ignore it.

You can also route tubing on the roof to a place where you can drill into a cabinet and drop through to under the floor. Use Dicor sealant and 90 degree fittings to keep it low and flush. There are already floor to ceiling pathways, one is the fridge. Plumbing vents are also clues.

Thanks for the responses. I have been up on the roof to look at the ac unit draining onto the roof and the gap between the ac unit and the roof is very close. I will look up the model online to see what the manufacturer says if anything. I will look into flexible routing options and the last one to install a drain down through the rig. Still working on options including ignoring the problem.

There used to be a company that made a drain pan that you fitted between the roof and the A'C unit. You could then ass a drain line over the edge. I don't know if it is still available or not.

You can always use some wood blocks to lift one side.
