Ever pulled the little clear piece out of the end of the tube or checked the whole tube for routing, kinks, or the connection to the drain behind the fridge. There are times the fridge just doesn't condensate much. If you're a weekend warrior and only run it for a few days at a time, very possible you won't see much. Take a little water in a cup or bottle and pour it in the catch pan under the fins in the fridge and check the tube for drainage.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Mine has a black vented plug to keep bugs out.

We have a Cherokee 27rr and after spending 7 days in it the little pan you are talking about was half full of water. I wondered what would happen after 2 weeks. I have never seen anywhere that you have to empty it but it would surely overflow.

It is not a blocker, It stops the bugs from getting in and blocking it. Look at the end closely. I'm sure that it has small holes for the water to drain out. Most of the tubes are some very thin walled plastic tubing. This tubing generally gets brittle and cracks. It should come down and bend back up like a sink drain. So that you will have water in the bend most all of the time. Otherwise you will get same outside air temp inside your refrigerator. Causing the inside temp to rise. I replaced mine with vinyl tubing when I pulled the refrigerator to put fans in the vent shaft.
