This is an interesting AC / Heat pump unit. Found this don't know if this is your unit. on paragraph 19 page 6 it talks about a drain plug being unplugged during Heating.... Do you suppose the condensation evaporates when in the cooling cycle similar to a residential refrigerator? EDIT: paragraph 8 page 5 does talk about drain tube. Guess my thoughts are likely wrong..Sorry to muddy the waters.

It is interesting so I looked at mine, can see two drains coming through the outside grill. Read the manual as noted last post. Says thermostat should be mounted 54 inches above the floor, that's a laugh, and it should not be near a door, another laugh!
As most of you know, the controls are in the doorway console along with the stereo controls. No clue where the thermostat could be?

A/C Drain

Gashog. You could be very right. I have tried to get more info from the Internet, but not getting much. I think maybe a chat with Dometic or Forest River or both, might be in order.

I have also noticed no dripping while the unit is operating. I suspect that this the the same design that most "widow" units for homes now use. The water extracted by the evaporator coil (the cold one where air exits inside in the A/C mode) is channeled to a pan below the condenser coil (the hot one where the air exits to the outside). This water then helps cool the hot coil as it vaporizes, helping efficiency.

Looking at the manual, they do show a pan below the condenser coil. I think that the clear tubes are just for overflow use if the pan becomes filled.

If this is true, then it is surely necessary to have the camper properly leveled for the system to work. Having the side opposite the door and/or the rear of the camper just a bit low should be fine, since it would would allow the water to flow in its proper direction. The reverse may cause the water to pool in the wrong place, although this may be rhe reason for the floor drain.
