add auto evaporator to window AC

it there a way that I can customize my window AC to drain the water in a particular way (ie through a tube) or connect an auto evap to it so i don't have to worry about the water at all.

You mean safely? May a brand new AC has been ruined by drilling into the bottom of the pan into the coil.
The condensate is used to help cool the unit so you don't want to drain it all out. In the few cases of excess, you could have a tube hooked up in such a manner as to drain the excess. Every model is a bit different so you'd have to be inventive yourself.

Sure is. Just can't see it too clearly from here, and what's an "auto evap"?
You just make sure passage is open for water to get to high side, and cut-and-fit for drain fitting. Of course, unit must be tilted slightly down towards high side, as usual.
Don't worry.
Normally functioning window-shaker sends all its water to high side, to be evaporated there, and reduce energy consumption.

Most are designed to need some water in the bottom. That's why they don't drain dry on their own.

Where does it drain now? How about you put a funnel under that spot, and a tube on or in the spout of the funnel, and the tube to where you want it to go?

auto-evap means a fan? an automobile evaporator?

Maybe the AC tips down too much outside the window. It should tip a little, and then in all relatively new ac's, the water is scooped up somewho and splashed on the condensor coils, where it evaporates and saves money. But if it tips too much, I'm sure some water could spill over before it is gathered up. Someone should tell you how much it should tip, and then make sure it tips that amount. Don't drop the AC out of the window if you have to open the window.
I don't know if brand matters but you should post the brand and maybe even the model.

The last one I bought is designed to not ever drip water. Instead the water is picked up by notches on the outdoor fan and flung into the condenser coil as a fine mist that is blown away by the exhaust.
