Very new to the forum, just bought our 2007 WildCat finally getting around to going over everything with a very fine tooth comb. While inspecting the refrigerator I found a white corrugated plastic line (I believe its original) drain line out side... it was very brittle and when I looked inside the hose was broke off up inside, from the out side it looked fine but was not... ended up clamping on a new rubber hose which worked much better. Just thought others might want to take a look inside you would never know.

Good on you for taking the time to look over things and finding that.

We've has several reports here of the older white corrugated drain hose cracking and breaking. The newer black seems to be better.

We also just bought a used Micro Lite trailer with the same issue. Purchased a roll of 1/2" ID clear hose from Princess Auto and replaced it pretty quickly.

My only question... why isn't there an actual place to put the end of the tube to drain outside of the trailer? We have insect screens over the vents in the exterior fridge access door, which meant I had to cut a hole in it to fit the tube through. Seems odd.

....because it doesn't cost the R/V manufacturer a single dime to let it hang out the vent door. It's all about the bottom dollar.... theirs!
