AC condensate dripping over awning?

We have, at least for us, a "new" 2001 Damon intruder . The AC units are running their water condensate over the outside roof, where it collects at the awning. Eventually it "drips" thru where the upper awning edge attaches to the RV.

Do the roof AC units have a "drain tube" that might be clogged, or do they usually just dump there condensate on the roof? Also, if the do usually dump water on the roof, could the awning have an "old and worn out" seal where it attaches so that is why the water leaks thru and drips along the length of the awning/RV?

water drains downhill.... if your awning is 'leaking' or 'dripping' at the top edge, it's because the age of the awning and how it's attached is causing it - every coach is susceptible to it.

level your coach where the driver side is slightly lower, and you'll easily solve the issue.

Every roof top A/C has or can be fitted with a condensate pump. They are usually set to pump into the gray water roof vent.
