Air Cond drain on 2500TS

Water from roof air conditioner drips down drivers side along drivers door and side of the Sunseeker 2500TS. The 2500TS does not have a ladder so it is hard to get up there and look. Should there be a drain or dripping down around drivers door is normal? 2500 was level both ways.
Thanks.

Mind drips down the passenger door or onto the awning. I guess it depends on the level.

Yes its normal. It has to drip somewhere no matter how level you are. Eventually enough water is going to build up on your roof that it has to run off. It should be draining from the end of your gutters.

My shower drain is toward the passenger rear side of the camper so I always leave the right rear corner the low spot when I level. That way the AC water drains to the rear of the camper and my shower drains properly.

Gutter Extensions ??

I have always installed gutter extensions on my RV's. Really don't want it dripping down the windows or outside walls.

Made mine out of 3/4" pvc about 3" long and put a pop rivet in the bottom to hold them on.

I personally don't like the water dripping from the gutters right outside the door of my camper! An easy fix on this is to tie a string from the end of the gutter to a tent stake on the ground well away from the camper and out if the way .. The water runs right down the string with no drips !

mine skips the gutters and runs down the back of the camper down the window and on the ground. My fiver has a pronounced slops toward the rear. Nuting I can do about it.

You can always take a strip of Eternabond and fabricate a ridge and route it anywhere you want, like toward the gutter.

I just got a 2500ts myself about 6 weeks ago. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm perfectly level or not, my AC drains from my front gutter extensions(the ones that came from the factory) and down onto my side mirror arms. It does not run down the side of the coach or doors of the cab.

On my #3051S they drip on the side view mirrors with gutter extensions installed. But swinging both mirrors in was simple.
