AC drip,drip,drip,drip,drip

How does the condenced water that collects on the AC coil escape from the factory installed air conditioning unit? Does it have a drip tube that runs between the inner and outer shell? Or does it just run down the outside?
I just had to rebuild a high quality de-humidifier that had drip tube issues. It ran for a few days unattended dripping water before it was noticed. It got me thinking that a clogged AC drip tube could cause some problems

Yes the drip tube runs out the bottom of the trailer. Sometimes you can clear it with a blast of air.

Typically there is a hose in the streetside wheel well (newer Airstreams).

Drain Hose

Blow a string thru the tube from the top down, then tie a small piece of rag to it and pull it thru, thats how we clean them out.

Can't tell the year of your trailer, but for the older trailers that have an Armstrong, I can get to the drain tube from inside the trailer by removing the street side filter.

Anyone know where the tube would exit on a 66 Safari International. I've been all over it and can't find it anywhere.
