Air conditioner runoff....where does it go?

I have a 2008 Wildwood that is currently not leveled yet. It is leaning slightly to the left and the A/C condensation is running off the left side of the trailer and dripping on my stovetop vent housing casing. I was just wondering, when my trailer is leveled, where is all the condensation going to go? Will I need to worry about leaks because of it???

The AC condensation runs out on the roof of the trailer, either side of the AC. Now where it goes, depends on how level the trailer is, but it will go downhill. As for leaks, always worry about leaks, more from rain than AC. Caulk yearly, or at least inspect yearly, if not more often.As for the stove top vent, most are plastic now, if yours is, it won't corrode.

The camper can be "slightly" tilted towards a "preferred" corner for the run off.
Just DO NOT over do it. Water will go downhill; even slightly downhill.

If it is like mine it will go to the passenger side and drip on you whenever you go to enter or exit the door.On mine this is where FR decided to put a seam in the awning rail and it drips right there ,very irritating..

A dab of caulk will fix that.
