thanks for all the comments

HPpro- while installing it like i did i checked with a level on the drain pan and still have some pitch to the drain. you can actually bend up the tabs on the cased coil where the pan sits to get you more pitch. sadly, i've had the a/c on already once and it drained just fine.

on a different note, the one time i used the a/c so far this spring i used the dehumidify feature on the icomfort. WOW, i had a 30 degree temp drop and it was POURING out condensate.... not to mention all my supply duct in the basement was sweating like crazy.
