I suggest you take it to someone that knows what they are doing. Fix it and enjoy it.

We are on our 1st trip of the season. Even with the shut off valve off it still leaks. Shutting off the cold water to bathroom sink has stopped the leak until it can be repaired. I never thought I would use the individual shut off valves but this time very handy.

I'm not sure if you have the same refrigerator but here is my suggestion to check.
Check that the plastic drip tray at the back of the refrigerator wall bellows the fins ha snot moved forward. It happens and when the fins drip the water flows into the bottom of the refrigerator instead of the drain line to the outside.
Here is a picture of my Dometic 4 door refrigerator.

On my 2011 the shutoff valve is under the kitchen sink. I had a similar leak it turned out to be the brass ferrel that goes in the tube and creates a seal was damaged at the solenoid. I have the bath and half so I don't know if your valve is in the same location. The solenoid has the foil tape wrapped around it. I added a shutoff valve near the solenoid. You access the solenoid from the outside lower vent. Hope this helps.

Last year at the rally, they reconnected your drain hose to the portion that runs down the back of the fridge & out the bottom of your coach. Is it still connected?

We had a little engine trouble en-route yesterday & our coach is in the shop.

We're hoping to get it back today (don't know what time), but will see you & the Big 'K' today or tomorrow.


From,

That Handsome Devil that was parked beside you at the rally Last year.

No joy. The pulley on the alternator seized up & took out the tension pulley & belt. FL won't have all of the parts until Saturday.

It seems like quite a few people are having this or the compressor seizing happen. It makes me nervous.

As accumak said, seems like this is a common issue. Superchief had a similar problem about a month ago. Took Freightliner a few days to get his parts also. He has about 50k miles on his coach.

Ceedog, how many miles on your coach?
