2 questions

I recently purchased Freedom Express 248RBD and have two questions about it.
Are most kitchen faucets a particular brand? Mine is dripping water while it is turned off so I would like to replace the gaskets once I can find out what brand to buy.
Is the refrigerator in an outside kitchen supposed to drain the condensation water outside of the kitchen? Every time that I run the refrigerator and then move the camper, there is water underneath and around the refrigerator. Itís not from a leak somewhere and there was no rain during our camping trips.
I have asked my dealer but so far I have not heard from them.

1) They use the cheapest ones they can source. Most of them are Dura Faucet, but that doesn't always hold true. You're better just replacing the whole thing with a decent residential unit.

2) Which fridge do you have. But to answer the question, most of those little fridges have a catch pan that may or may not have a drain. I suspect that the catch pan is filling up and sloshing out when you move the unit.

Bagger, I agree with everyone, replace the faucet with a decent one.

About your refrigerator problem, what year is your Freedom Express 248RBD?

This image of a 2019 248RBD shows you should have a drain hose hanging out of your refrigerator vent. I bet it's tucked in the vent and draining inside. Remove the vent to the right of your outside kitchen and look for the drain hose.

Clipper: The OP was talking about the fridge in the outside kitchen (the one on the left in your pic), NOT the regular fridge that has the drain hose (the one on the right in your pic).

I have a 248 RBS, the outside fridge does not have a drain hose. When the fridge defrosts when you unplug the camper the water drains down onto the counter top. I put a towel down in the bottom shelf of the fridge were the drain hole is and let that catch all the water.

I don't believe I've ever seen a drain on a "college dorm" fridge like they put in outdoor RV kitchens.

I have the same unit as you and replaced the kitchen, bath and shower faucets. I have not noticed a drain line for the outside frig but also never noticed water coming from it on the counter or elsewhere.
