Question/Problem with Condensation/Water from AC

I currently have a GT328. My problem is that whenever I run the air conditioner the condensation/water from the AC pools on the roof behind the awning and runs down the slide. The water constantly runs down the slide soaking the area under the awning.

Has anyone else encountered this issue and is it possible to divert the condensation coming from the AC? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You may have debris clogging your gutters. They are fairly small, only designed to deal with condensation, not heavy rain. While parked here in FL for the winter (under trees) I sweep my roof at least one a week, paying particular attention to the gutters. You can also use your leveling system to change the direction of runoff.

This happens to all of us and I for one always try and raise the front jacks slightly higher so the water from the AC rolls to the rear of the motorhome.
You can also have the front lower but the water will then get on the mirrors and the side windows.


Just my suggestion.
Have a great holiday season.

Going off the clogged gutter thing.. Mine were filled with caulk at the seams so the water could not go past the dams. Might need to trim the sealant back a bit.

Should be able to control direction of flow by adjusting jacks slightly.

I was having a similar issue, but only when parked in our drive. I level it (jacks down) and keep it plugged in and the AC running, but our drive slopes so much the system stops and indicates excessive slope, even though the bubble level on my iPhone shows it's within a degree or two. Last time I parked, I played with the levelers manually after it finished auto leveling and got it just a smudge closer. Voila! It now drains through the lines under the coach!
