Swift 184BH AC Water Drainage. (PICS Inside)

I had had posted a couple times about how I keep water from the AC from running down the side of the camper and window. I take a piece of cotton rope and thread a piece of bailing wire though it. In one of the pics you can see water dripping from the "wick".

It's funny, with everyone talking about the AC dripping and these mods to deal with it I have yet to see my AC drip. It must be the low humidity of living in a semi-desert region. from xkuzme's pic he is getting a lot of condensation happening.

Put it this way, that puddle was only 10 minutes and it was 90 degrees out so the water was evaporating at only a slightly slower rates than it was dripping.

Do you have any issues with water running down the inside of your walls? I had to take mine into to fix the AC drip pan because... It wasn't draining and when it did, well it did inside. Something to check on.

I was worried about it dripping inside but the AC ran for about 4 days on the August long weekend when we had relatives stay in it in our driveway and I checked and didn't see a thing. I just checked the statistics for those days and during the heat of the day the humidity drops to 20-30% each day. Maybe I'll run into dripping issues if I stay somewhere a bit more humid.

I rarely see dripping from our AC unit either. I think I'm going to take the cover off one of these days and take a look at the drip pan.

I have seen this drainage issue on my 185rb, usually when I take it off level to travel, some water comes off (what I presume to be) the top of the window.

Has anyone established that this is actually a problem? It strikes me that if the window won't take that, it won't take rain, either.

When leveling my TT (154BH), I always try to tip the unit (slightly) toward the hook-up side. The AC condensation, sink and septic drain better.

Only problem with leveling it slightly off, the sink on the other side doesn't drain well. We also sleep with our head under the AC and don't want to sleep going down hill.
