Outside water runoff from AC

I have noticed that when I run my AC there is water that runs off by the streetside awning. It runs to the back of the awning and eventually down the side of the trailer there.

By the back street side awning arm it runs down the trailer and somehow works it's way back further back and drips from below the molding on the back street side lights.

Any idea on if this is going inside of the trailer?

I'm planning on doing a full remodel, hopefully not a full Monty.

Is this something I just won't know the extent of until I take out the rear bathroom?

Thank you. I will try and post pictures shortly.

What year, what trailer? What sort of AC unit does it have?

It's possible that you have an AC unit that a previous owner replaced with one that didn't have the right pan for the Airstream drain tube, so yours is just drooling the water out onto the skin. I think if the drain tube is connected but clogged, you tend to get water dripping from the inside unit of the AC but happily that hasn't happened to me yet so it's just something I've read on the forums.

Mine too...as the replaced A/C was moved forward by previous owners...I am going to attach 1/4"A/C hoses to the weep holes (2 each) on the bottom of the A/C pan..and run it closely to the pan over to the curb side. I found a great 3/4" Aluminum pipe at Ace Hardware.. it will attach to the roof and curve down and drain into the fridge vent (via a hole drilled) down thru the floor out the bottom ..not near tires..
