Roof ac water runs from top of roof

I'm a first time travel trailer owner and I noticed water running from the roof climbed up there… And it is coming from the bottom of the AC as it was running. Is this normal it wasn't gushing, just a small stream, is this something I should be worried about?

Thanks

That is perfectly normal and is simply the condensation running off. If the runoff is in a bad spot (e.g. right over the door) you might need to adjust your setup a bit to reroute it. With the WH I found that being slightly nose high ran the water off the back, vs. right over the door if we were level.

Yep totally normal. I also setup with the nose just high enough that the water runs off the back.

It also helps to keep water from the tub from trickling onto the floor during showers with our specific floorplan.

Keep an eye on the area(s) where the a/c condensation drips on the roof. I fulltime and my a/c's run a lot since I spend summers on the Florida Gulf Coast. After 5 years of fulltime use my EPDB roof started to leak through the membrane. Obviously the membrane wasn't up to the condensation dripping on it this much. Or it was a bad membrane. Either way my advice is to keep your eyes on this area. I had cleaned and maintained this roof exactly per the manufacturers recommendations. Also, don't believe the 12 year roof warranty. It is a joke and not worth the ink it takes to print it on a warranty card.

Totally normal. It's just the condensation, on really hot and humid days it can really flow.

As others said. It'll just drain down to the low point, if I can I'll try to make that the rear street side corner. So the wetness is away from where we are at.

I will use a 1/4" rope to help divert the a/c run off away. Just use a clothes pin to hold it to the gutter and a small stake in the ground. Never fails that most of the run off is front drivers side corner.....

Part of that is I try to go ever so slightly nose down to help keep the shower water from run onto the floor.

Ours drips off the front street-side corner when we're "perfectly" level. I've tried to go a little nose up to get it to go off the rear, but then it goes off the curb-side. When it drips off the front, it hits me when I'm accessing the pass-thru storage. But when I go nose-up, the shower doesn't drain all the way....
