AC condensation running on outside of camper down by awning

Before I crawl on top of camper to remove shroud thought Iíd ask if I will be able to see drain area that way. Water is coming out of drain tube in WW but also runs down outside of camper. Camper is level, drain tube has been blown out from inside air return area where hose connects to drain port lines and Iíve blown into those ports also. I donít have access to a ladder for now so trying to plan ahead. Thx

Mine does the same thing on a humid day. That is condensation on top of your trailer. Mine collects up there and runs down the side of trailer.

Do you have a drain like this?

I use a hard plastic 1/8" vacuum hose, work it up from the bottom.
Others have had good luck with weed whacker cord.

Similar but a little shorter and located in the wheel well. I did blow line out with compressed air from inside at hose connection so think that run of hose may be Ok. I may try to run a piece of ww cord from that inside connection to unit to see if anything changes. Thanks

Remove AC filters and look at drain hose. If it is not properly secured (there are brackets that hold it as I recall), it can dangle down a little and it does not drain as effectively. Re-securing it the bracket fixed this issue when it happened to us.
