Condensation pooling on the roof

Picked up this 2013 Elevation 3612 earlier his month. Had it hooked up in the drive working on making it ours. When I went to move after a week or so running the systems I had a significant amount of water run off after I lowered it on to my hitch. I didn't think a whole lot about it then, but took it for our first outing last weekend. We were getting ready to head home and the wife went up to sweep any debris off the tops of the slides. She told me there was standing water all around the #1 A/C. It extended about a foot around it and maybe a half inch deep. 3 1/2 days of camping and all the time we ran it in the drive and I've never notice an condensation run off. Haven't had any leaks inside but I don't want any either.
Is this normal?
Has anyone else noticed yours doing this?

I've got a travel trailer, but always had run off when changing the pitch of the trailer either after a rain or running the AC.

Condensation from the A/C is normal. Depending on how the rig is leveled, it may run off the back, side or whichever side is "downslope". You may not even see it as it normally will run off then pool then run off again.

Whenever it is hot and humid and I have the A/C on, I have runoff dripping from the rear gutter standoffs. As you can see from the picture in my signature, my roof slopes to the rear and to each side. It is not flat anywhere.

I always have condensation runoff. But it never pools it runs towards whichever side is lowest. But my roof has a huge pitch.

After looking at a pic of your Rv, I see that your roof is flat. Water will eventually run off when it gets high enough to break the plane of the roof. Not one of my favorite designs, but many manufacturers build the full profile 5ers like yours. So, I'm sure that it's not a problem to worry about.
