Controlling AC Condensation

Has anyone found or created a way to direct AC condensation to drain in 1 or 2 specific places?

My condensation runs anywhere along the roof depending on how it is leveled. That includes into awning covers, awning supports and anywhere else it finds convenient. The problem that creates is some streaking of the walls but also causes dirt to splash up the the lower parts when the water drips hard.

Could it be as simple as building some kind of dam around the units with a a tube attached to a hole in that wall to direct the flow?

THANKS!!!

That gives me a lot to think about and seems to be a pretty simple way to go.

I'm thinking I can easily ring the roof of my coach and create a couple outlets near my RV's current gutters. I've sent off an email to the folks at EZE RV Gutters to see if I can get samples.

Use Levelers!

Folks,

A technique I use is once I am level, I take manual control of my levelers and life the front up about another inch. All condensate off the roof goes over the back end of the RV. But you can choose whatever direction you like. Our friends like to lift the Drivers side so their heads are a bit higher while sleeping.

Be glad your condensate does not drain via pumps into the RV and out under the RV. If the pipe gets clogged, they are tough to fix.

I hear you about the potential for clogged drain pipes. That would be a PIA.

My problem is that we tend to level slightly low on the passenger side to keep the steps closer to the ground. That means my rain and AC runoff indiscriminately runs to that side. It drips into my patio awning casing and keeps it wet too. I'm thinking this rubber gutter will do the trick.
