Fridge question 2013 23SS

Have my trailer in the driveway on shore power. Has been pretty hot for the last few days but running the fridge as I pack the unit.

This morning I noticed the fridge fault light was on. Couldn't get it to flip to gas either. Suspected the trailer front to back wasn't level enough so I corrected this.

When I checked the outside drip tube I saw it had leaked out a pink fluid. Looks like my winter antifreeze. See picture. I know condensation drips but wasn't thinking it should be pink. So is this because the fridge sometimes draws fresh water on occasion to aid in cooling and it had antifreeze in the line or is this something different?

Leveled the unit. Restarted the fridge and it's all working fine on gas and shore power.

Your fridge may be different as I have never heard of water hooked up to one.(except maybe an ice maker?) I do know I helped a friend change out a 6 Cuf unit for an 8 Cuf unit and it did not have any water lines to it. Only the condensate drain.

That's what I think too. So why pink liquid?

The tube that drips outside on mine is plumbed into the tray directly under the fins in the fridge. Is it possible something spilled in there and due to being off level it found it's way to drain and ran out, it just happen to have unfortunate timing? LOL

If that's the case color my face red. I'll be able to check on Sunday. For the life of me the pink color baffled me. I'll let you know.

Taste it? Maybe when someone winterized it they put some anti freeze down that tube since it could have water in it that would freeze and crack the tubing?
