Thanks fellows;
Put more drop to drain line. Still a lot of water. So decided again to check things out. It seems the installer did not insulate the intake in the right place. There was about 4 foot of intake that was not insulated on the room temp side of pipe. So when the 0 or 10 deg air hit the 70 deg piping area, instant condensate. A lot of it I might mention. Now that this has been corrected, there is hardly any water at all coming from the drain. Basically it was having an icicle affect on the outside, building up slowley until the elbow at the end of the drain became plugged. Oh, I removed the elbow also.
A learning experience. At 65, proves you never get to old to learn something.
