Refrigerator condensation

We have a 2017 25’ Rear Queen Flying Cloud. Frig takes a while to cool down, but my real question is that we get a lot of water (assuming condensation) in the bottom of frig. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a solution or is this something we have to live with?

Yes. Look at tray, you will notice when you pull it out that it has a pipe that goes into the hole. I installed an oring on the tube, get a thick one. That is a little smaller than the hole. Push in. Presto.

use a small circulation fan

it is a must if you are in a high humidity area

these fans make our fridge a more consistent temp and reduces frost build up

cheap and easy to make

If your AS isn’t level condensation may not drain properly. Also the tray ‘spout’ could be too short. We solved this issue by attaching a short piece of tubing and directing it down the outlet hole.
