Exclamation GMC Jimmy A/C Drain Clog

Hey. I was driving today and heard a weird gurgling sound that I could tell was some type of liquid. I checked under the hood and saw nothing. Then I noticed that there was no puddle under the car, and quickly figured out that the drain must be clogged. I spent over $900 getting a new condenser, etc... less than 2 years ago. Is this a "do-it-yourself" fix, or is this an expensive professional job??? The AC is working great, but I only drove for about 15 minutes after hearing the gurgling, and won't use the AC anymore until it's fixed.

Thanks for anyone's expertise on this one!!!

how to unclog

First you ned to get under the truck and find the drain hose on passanger side on the firewall it will be a short hose maybe with a elbow on it.
Then take a small wire or something and stick it up in there to remove the clog or if you have air you can blow it out.
