Dometic fridge drain pipe replacement

Hi there, I have an older (10 years) FR cherokee lite 26k. With a dometic dm2652 refrigerator, typical gas/electric, freezer on top 2 door...I need to replace the drain hose inside the outside cover...I have the replacement hose (white opaque corregated)..I just can't figure out how to get to where it mounts up behind all the pipes etc.. Do I need to pull out the fridge and install the hose from the top???...Anyone here done it and have any tips or leads....thanks

I just replaced mine on a Flagstaff rear kitchen model. YouTube is your friend. Just look for Dometic refrigerator drain hose replacement. 4 minute video by PAPA Texas tells you how. Remove 6 screws, disconnect gas line, pull unit out 6Ē and you can reach everything. I used better hose than the original so Iíd never have to do it again.

Thanks.. I am camping for the next week and will work on it when I get home...I can see where the hose goes into a hole in ??the drain pan.. but I am not sure what keeps the hose from falling out, the one I am working on (appears) the hose has broken off flush with the bottom of drain pan..it looks like I am going to have to grow some baby arms with a few extra elbows to get to where it attaches.
