Hi,

Today I noticed water near the outside of my AC unit leaking about where the coils are located.
After a little investigating I found the condensate line did not allow water to flow. I cleared the run from the AC to the connection at the drain under my bathroom sink.

What I noticed is that there is not much room for the condensate to enter the drain as there is a (gray) pipe above it that extends past the condensate tap. See pic. Is that gray pipe supposed to go down as far as shown or should it end above the condensate nipple?

Cut the grey pipe just above the stub for the condensate line.
Make sure you tighten your connection so that the trap doesn't drop. I would put something under the trap for support (something like a tile or a brick, depending on the space).

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
