Where does your AC water flow?

I was surprised today to find lots of water flowing from the front of the roof.
I think it's from the AC, but is it supposed to flow from the roof?

It flows in whatever direction the trailer is slanted. The roof mounted A.C. units on Escapes don't have built in drain lines. So as condensation forms on the unit, it forms drops and runs off. It's perfectly normal. Generally, the higher the humidity, the more condensation runoff you'll notice. If it's running down the length of the trailer and off the front, you might want to raise the tongue slightly so it runs off in a less conspicuous direction, like the back.

On my 19, I like to have the trailer ever so slightly slanted toward the rear and to the passenger side when I'm running the A.C.. That way, any runoff is directed toward the plastic rain gutter material over the passenger rear window, and is directed down the corner. In any case, this is one of those situations where a dead level setup may not be ideal.

Thank you.. it surprised me a bit with that much water, I thought something was leaking.
I'll try to level it a bit as you suggested.
