AC Condensation

We used our 28BHS for the first time in the heat this last weekend and ran the AC the whole time. Condensation poured out of the unti and down the rain gutter over the storage door.
Is this normal?

The condensation is normal. Adjust your level a smidge and you should be able to get the water to run down an alternate corner and away from your storage door.

Moosie has it. With the X23B it was pretty easy to get the condensate to run off the far back corner. With the 5th it just seems to run where it wants.
A semi-related experience from out last outing:
The temp was probably 94 (F) and humidity was high. I leave the bathroom vent open 24/7 (covered with Maxx Air). Was sitting on the john and noticed water drops on the floor in front of me (no, I didn't miss - that bad). Looked at the ceiling and the round A/C register was dripping with condensate. A closer look showed condensate in a 4" wide strip on the ceiling running back to front thru the bath following the A/C ducting. Then I noticed how the warm, humid air was pouring through the open vent. I now close the vent in hot and humid weather.

X2 on the level. Had same issue this past week when the unit was draining towards the front of the TT.
