There is normally a small barb on these units that a hose can be connected to, the condensate can then directed to te deck of the boat and allowed to drain overboard. If you already doi this is may be that the drain has become blocked internally and the drip tray is overflowing.

You may have the unit angled wrong causing the condensate to drip where it shouldn't.

Here is a link to a carry-on operators manual, where you will find the information on levelling and the barb location.
