AC drain off

i have the rockwood hw276, over the weekend we used the AC and the unit drained off the roof right on the back bed top, im trying to find out if anyone knows how I can redirect the water because the top was wet and I had to collapce the camper and set it back up at home. I found on pintrest that some pup users use a pool noodle but i really didnt want to use a neon color on my pup (sore thumb) any help would be great.

When setting up you could fudge the level a little bit so the water will drain off the roof where you want it, or don't want it.

Get some Eternabond tape and make a trough to direct it wherever you want.

Make a gutter out of 1.5- to 2-inch PVC pipe. Cut the pipe into about a two-foot section. Then take off half of the pipe along a 15- or 18-section. Slip that part between the canvas top with the unsliced portion hanging over the edge. Make sure the camper is slightly tilted toward your gutter and the water should roll right into it and onto the ground.
