I had a so called professional installer do the installation. He installed it
with an extreme tilt to the outside. Looks like at least 2 or 3 times what the
instructions call for. This concernes me because water does not drain from the
drain hole, it over flows from the opposite side of the unit. I'm also
concerned that this extreme tilt may effect the opration of the unit. Should I
have the installer return and do the job right? I hope that someone can answer
these questions for me. Thanks, Jim

That's true up to a point -- there's a drain hole there for a reason... :)
If there's sufficient humidity in air there can easily be more
condensate than the condensor will evaporate so you'll get condensate
If OP's is tilted so badly it overruns the lip of the bottom case as he
indicates, probably either the drain is plugged or there's a sideways
tilt or other obstruction preventing condensate from going out the drain
but is pooling at the low spot. The lip would have to be higher than
the drain which seems incredible or perhaps there are obstructions
between that act as dam preventing the flow...
Either way, the condensate beyond what the condensor _can_ evaporate
should go out the drain hole...
