A/C Condensation

How do I keep the A/C condensation from dripping down the awning? Also, I do have a leak spot in the awning that drips down the side of the RV, right over the outside TV.

What type of caulk can I use to seal the awning leak spot? Plus, what can I use to channel the condensation to the front or rear of the RV? I'm not talking about a gutter on the sideway edge of the RV. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

The awning rail is not sealed to the side wall and Id not try to seal it. Some people go to great lengths to try to channel the water to one place or another with add on gutters or beads of caulk on the roof. I think its much easier to adjust the position of the coach when leveling so that the drivers side and back end are lower so the run off of condensation, dew and rain will be where I want it. It does not require the coach to be noticeably off level. There will ALWAYS be a low point just choose where it is.

I agree with Pete: just leave the driver's side of the rig a tiny bit on the low wside. It only takes about a 1 degree "lean": to make the difference.
