THOR #20698
AC runoff goes over entry door

I have a new Hurricane 35M, the AC water runoff from the front unit drains directly over entry door. Unit is level. Short of setting up low to passenger side Any ideas how to rectify?

Thanks in advance

You could always add a gutter system to direct the water to a different drop-off point.

Can that be glided on or does it have to be drilled

Coleman makes a condensate pump for RVs. It will pump the condensate wherever. The usual place is into the gray water tank through the vent, unless your coach came with an interior condensate drain. <https://www.dyersonline.com/coleman-mach-air-conditioner-condensate-pump-assembly.html>

They make them with a variety of mounting options.

Had the same problem on our 29m. Now I just level and bump the front a tiny bit. Works like a charm.

level then bump the front up so water runs down the gutters and off the rear. A little tip to the driver's side will also help. Install gutter extensions as shown in the picture. Very easy to install.

Install a level app on your phone and lay it on the floor at the door. they are very accurate.

On a previous coach with that problem, I put a bead of Dicor self-leveling caulk starting just in front of the air conditioner and running toward the rear far enough to direct the runoff beyond the door and onto the awning. After flattening out, the Dicor left enough of a bump to channel the water.

Wow, I thought I was re-reading the last thread on this topic from a month ago - all the same answers except for the Trim-Lok Drip Rail which we installed over two years ago for those times when the condensate still wants to head to the passenger side:

Great idea!
I may have to borrow this one.

That level trick works but, I usually forget about it or the wind counters the lean too much.

Since I'm the oddball that uses the auto level feature, I recalibrated it to have a lean to the street side aft. This keeps the drip to the same place every time.
