Get rid of the P trap.
I wont say it is the cause of you're dilema, but it is not needed on a positive pressure drain.

Wondering if ptrap is keeping pan full allowing condensate to be blown out

I wouldn't put a trap on a positive pressure drain but that's not the issue. First, where does the drip terminate? Is it into a condensate pump, a sink, a dry well/sump pump, hole in the floor, where? How do you know the drain after the terminatioin is clear and running? Where is the water actually leaking onto the floor coming from? Is it coming directly from the drain termination or is it coming from the drip pan? Need more info.

Drain is in the floor and is not clogged.Drain pan on coil is empty when looked at.Unit is also off when viewed.Furnace is sitting on box sucking the return through the bottom of furnace.The drain for the ac is in the return.
