Makes perfect sense. Do think it makes sense to open up the wall on the outside /other side where the minisplit is installed.
so that I can provide the drain in a vertical line !!
What is the best way to open the wall on the other side at the bottom or the top ?
If it is at the top, I need to run all the tube outside.

does this makes sense ?

I don't know, cannot see it from here. Every one has a different wall and setup. Have to come up with a method and seal it so no water gets inside the wall. I don't do installs. I have a crew who does.

Post a pic of the wall and someone else here may be able to give you more info.

Do you have any slim duct on the outside of your house for the line set? We usually feed the condensate line out with the line set and down in the slim duct.
