Air Conditioner Water Condensation

Is it normal for the water that drains to be a little brown? It's staining the RV. Should I remove the AC cover to inspect?

I've never had brown condensation but I am definitely not an expert in anything AC related

Needless to say, something is rusting. I would definitely start looking under the cover of the ac and the condensate trail from the tray to the edge of the camper and down the side.

Can you tell if it is metallic or like soil? I agree it could be rust but that is normally a little redder in color from the iron oxidation. It may be a mud dauber nest that is right in the way of your drain and you are slowly washing it out. Just another thought, but your situation is not normal.

Definitely not normal, mine has always run clear but doesn't drip from that location either.
