Refrigerator Drain Tube
Posted as an FYI.....
Since it was new (Early 2006) we have kept our trailer plugged in while at home, with the refrigerator turned on. I had the outside access cover off the other day to just check things out and discovered that the drain tube has become very brittle. The more I messed with it, the more of it that fell apart. The connection point to the drain is too high to reach from the access point. I do not know of any way to replace the tube without pulling the refrigerator out from the inside (big project).
What I did was to get a section of vinyl tubing that was large enough to fit over the existing drain tube. I slipped it up and over the old tube as far as it would go. It did the trick and the water is draining as it should thru the tube and not into the compartment. I only had to make a larger opening in the vent cover for the new tune to exit.
I am thinking that the constant heat of the ref being on 24/7 may have contributed to the tubing becoming brittle.
Make sure you check the drain tube every once in a while.
