Dometic RMS1350 Sweating

My Dometic refrigerator is sweating inside a lot. The fins are covered with water as is some of the food. I'm assuming the door seals need to be replaced. Has anyone replaced their own seals? Is it easy or difficult to do? Does anyone has any other ideas as to why we may be getting so much water inside the unit? Thank you

Is the plug in the black drain hose outside. If that tube is left open humid air will make it sweat.

Thank you. That tube is not connected to the outside plug so that may be the problem. I'll reconnect and try that. Thank you for your reply and safe travels!

You can get a plug that will fit in the end. That's what I did. It has holes to let the water out but without that warm humid air goes directly into the fridge. We were defrosting every week before we were given a plug.
