A/C drain tube is kinked

The drain tube from the a/c unit, inside the camper roof to the outside wheel well area, is kinked as it makes a sharp turn.
Can anyone tell me by looking at the photo, if this is the correct
placement of this tube with that right angle.
Husband is not sure what to do at this point to correct it.
Can a new tube replace this one? and how would it follow the path to get outside? HELP..

He thinks this is a good spot to crack and then leak water inside our camper?

The photo is not exactly crystal clear, however, the main thing is determine whether or not there is any obstruction to flow of water in the existing tubing. As long as there is no "crud" in the tubing and that the condensate from the A/C can flow freely into the wheel well, then you have nothing to worry about. Good luck. (If there is no obstruction, then I would not "fix" it. In other words, If it ain't broke, don't fix it.)

Different A/C units connect at different spots. When we replaced ours it end up with a sharp curve that I was afraid would end up kinking. We cut the drain line and put a 90 degree elbow in the line to stop that from happening.
