Default Fridge drain line (be aware)

Had our new TT out just a handfull of times since buyinging in Oct. When I got home the other day and after sitting in the driveway for a few hrs after unloading I found some small water puddles in front on the fridge and could see some dripping from underside of the fridge door onto the floring of the trailer. dried it up and placed towels in the fridge to dry the condensation. Aynways found the outside black fridge drain line not dripping anything. pulled the svc cover outside and started to check the line, found it had about 2' of coiled up extra line shoved up above the the inside of the svc cover and holding all this water (assuming eventually backing up and spilling inside).I un-coiled it and have a straight drop outside now cutting off the extra. Just something to be aware of if you have a new unit or havent seen any drippage outside.

Had a fifth wheel that the drain line had a loop in it, not a problem keeps bugs out right. The problem was the loop was higher than the drain so it would not drain, did the same thing as you removed loop and drained just fine after that.

Yes they do, we have a Dometic but have had two Norcold's they have a tray inside that catches the water it is inside where the coils and such not in the refrigerator but had that plug up with mud one time, now that was interesting.
