AC condensate drain

When Ms. Bigfoot finishes doing the Hoochie Coochie and tells me The Prairie Schooner is level, the air conditioning condensation drips from the front of the gutter behind the driver's door. There are gutter spouts on the rear of both driver's side and passenger side gutters. Should I be adjusting so the water drains off the aft end. I hate to mess with Ms. Bigfoot once she has spoken.

You could run a bead of dicor sealant from the A/C toward the rear of the coach to direct the water away from the front. Provided of course that the unit is pretty level.

Mines always a hair low towards the front even when recalibrated. You could bump the front up a smudge manually though.

Can I bump it up manually and then calibrate it to hold that position?

I tried that with mine and it still went nose down a hair like its designed to do that for draining purposes I suppose.

Wait a sec! Do you have gutter spouts on the front of your gutters? If not add some, then you get the joy of having to put your mirrors in or the runoff will splatter on them when it rains! 😄

I reprogrammed Ms. Bigfoot to have a slightly rear tilt, and saved the changes. Seems to do the trick. Amazing what reading the manual can do
