Frig condensation drain tube?

The condensation drain tube on my Dometic Frig has dry rotted and broken off up where I can just barely touch it. I was told that the frig has to be pulled to replace this tube. Is this true and if so, how hard is it to remove the frig?

Unless you have a weird fridge you should be ably to just pull the outside
panel.

You might be able to work that from the inside of the fridge by pulling out the drip tray in back ?? I think the tube is attached directly to that.

if u have to end up pulling the frig, the biggest part is disconnecting the gas and elect lines. the fridge is screwed in from the front around the outer flange. if u haven't handled one of those friges, u are going to be surprised at how light they are.

Your welcome, just keep us posted and take some pictures if you can. I am sure this problem will rear its ugly head many times for others here on the forum....
