Water dripping from Coleman-Mach Central System

We have had this MH for about a month, and obviously are still learning.
There is water dripping from this Colman-Mach Central System on our 2007 Journey 36SG.
Please see the attached pictures.
I think that this is the Heat Exchanger for the Elictrice Driven Heat Pump? But I may be wrong.
Is this water dripping down normal?

Also unrelated, ??? The Journey now pulls pretty hard to the right.
It never did before???

On the second pic, the water is normal, and is the condensate from the AC evaporator.
Not sure what the first pic is of, if that is a picture of the condenser, then the water is not normal, I would check the drain underneath the unit, to make sure the condensate is draining correctly

n9bk, if you are in the cooling mode there will be some water coming from the evaporator coil (the coil on the inside) and coming out the drip tube.
If you are the heat mode the outside coil will frost up sometimes then defrost, causing water to drip from it.

Like others have stated I would check the drain for the evaporator.

Does the water drip when you are in cooling or heating mode?

Pulling to the right ... I suggest you check the inflation of your tires ... if that doesn't fix it ... then check the alignment

It's normal, relax and be thankful it is not dripping off your roof.

Pulling to one side. Worst case scenario is a brake dragging on the front. Every motorhome owner should have a infrared temp gun. Point at the rotor and check the temp. If it is dragging hard, you will smell the brake pad burning. A moderate drag will cause it to pull to one side but no smell.

I found the right in-side rear dual tire was real low on air due to a bad core in the valve stem. Replaced the core and re-inflated - cured the pulling right.

I guess the water dripping is due to the heat pump running.., and not draining through the drain plug. (it's a piece of rubber that I can remove and check out once I get down to warmer climates in Florida)

n9bk, when running the heat pump there is not any water formed on the inside coil. The water you saw is from the outside coil frosting up, not a problem.
