Default A/C condensate drains

I recently had some water come down through the side valence with only the front A/C running. It appears that all three A/C unit condensate drains (red tubing?) join together there and drop down to an area behind the driver side wheel well. Is my assumption correct? Could the drain be plugged? Can I backflush this drain with a little burst of compressed air?

All help appreciated.

BTW - Many thanks to those who posted the Aqua Hot/Webasto repair photos. I found then very helpful while putting new bearings in same.

Very little air, of you use that method. You don't want to blow the line apart from any hidden fittings. If it is crud build-up from condensate water then a little bleach inserted up above may work. If it is dirt build-up from dust a coat hanger inserted from below may work.

Fred,

It is unlikely the three a/c unit drains are joined together. The front is by the left front wheel. The center is around the propane tank, roadside, and I think the rear is in front of the rear wheel well, also road side. If they don't drip, they are plugged.

A lot of air pressure will blow the fittings apart, so if you use it, use it lightly.
