A/C condensation rerouting

On my Axis the water from the A/C unit on top of the coach drains directly to the right of the doorway, creating a puddle at the entrance!
Have any of you devised a system to redirect the water?
I've thought about using some Eternabond tape to create some sort of channel but not sure where would the best place for it to drain! Is it possible to add gutters?
I suppose I could just use leveling blocks to tilt the MH so that it would drain elsewhere but I would prefer it to be level if possible!
I would welcome your thoughts!

The Axis and Vegas sit slightly nose down. If you are not using any leveling blocks now, then your roof is lower on the front then the condensation runs forward. I use level blocks so that there are 2 layers under the front wheels. That makes my Vegas level. Condensation runs off on to the awning. I have the awning adjusted so the rear outer corner is the low point. All the condensation drips off the outer rear corner of the awning.

Humm I put those little spirit levels on my MH based on the surface on my storage unit, which is dead level. It didn't occur to me that the coach itself was not level.
Live and learn.
I have done the adjustment you mentioned for the awning.
Thanks

I've seen pictures of folks who ran a bead of caulk along the roof to direct it.
and yes, they make stick on gutter material too.
