Fridge condensate

I have a 2019 flagstaff 25bds. I noticed that the condensate line leading out of the trailer only seems to drain after I power down trailer. While using the fridge which maintains cold it doesnít appear to expel water. It seems much more wet inside fridge compared to home fridge.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Adding a 12v fan blowing to circulate air should help, easy to install, on your drain, more then likely the tin coils get a little ice on them, when you shut the unit off they will defrost causing more water to be added to the drain pan. Is the only thing I can think of. The fan will also help stopping the frost on the fin plate. Also you mention that it different then your home refer, that is because they are. At home you have defrost cycles in your trailer the only way that happens is by shutting it off. Best I can think of...

I think Witch Doctor is right with his diagnosis for why you are seeing more water after you shut it down than when it is running. While it is running, a lot of the condensation created evaporates before it has a chance to make it to the drain.

The fan is always a good mod.
