Dometic fridge drain

Noticed in the panel behind the fridge there is a hose ( I assume drain) with an obvious factory plug fitted . Should be in or out?
Also, I noticed a posting awhile ago showing a small fan setup inside the fridge.
figure important for air circulation. Can someone advise where I can find that posting.
Tks

The drain should come out the fridge grill. If you get frost,or condensation on the fins in your fridge the the water drains out that hose when it defrosts.

You probably have a Norcold, that's the way mine is also except mine is a little plastic tray.

It should be perforated with small holes, had two like that. Some used small fan esp when box is full, helps move cooler air.
