W-126('88 420SEL) A/C question

Gentlemen (and Ladies):

My A/C blows fairly cool, and blower now is strong. However....

I have been noticing that I am not getting any water drip under the car. I find this strange.

I'm concerned. Could this just be a clogged drip hose, as I had not been using the A/C at all until just recently? (Debris, etc.)

Or: Could it be a malfunctioning evaportator?

What would you suggest I troubleshoot for simply, before I go the extreme of just buying and installing a new evaporator?

If it's blowing cold then the evaporator is doing it's job.

There has to be humidity in the air for the AC to extract it and expel it as a drip. Try poking the drip tube under the car with a stiff wire to see if that clears up the drain path.
