2020 HW27KS - A/C condensation run off...

First time running the a/c for me (NW Florida), and it works great...the condensation just runs off the roof, right? I wouldn't think there'd be a collection pan and a run-off hose...just checking...

Thanks, gang...

Correct, water runs off of the roof.

I installed a piece of Vinyl J Channel to control condensate run off on the canvass.

There is actually a "pan" inside the AC unit that drains to the outside of the roof that can get clogged after significant user that promotes algae growth.

I have a similar drain channel as jeff that is made out of a black rubberized material as a J channel.

you can also tilt the trailer front/back and side to side a bit to help control where the runoff happens without disturbing the levelness that much

Like RSData, I also like to pitch the runoff opposite the door... and my own bunk. So, on my Roo, that means to the driver's side and rear.
