The drain should go directly to the outside by itself.

By where the drain enters the floor of the refrigerator compartment in the middle of the 2 tires should it come through the wheel well in the middle between the 2 tires?
I can't see it.
I will look again when I get home.

If you don't see it I would pour a glass of water in the collection tray and see if it drains outside. If it does not drain out the shop may have short sheeted the tubing and it is draining into the body. NOT GOOD

That was my initial knee jerk reaction.
Say it ain't so!
Refrigerator is on. Been on several days. Our humidity is near 100%. Such be much condensation/drip from the hose...

Mine never drains until I defrost or shut off the fridge after a trip. Mine is inboard of the tires almost to the fresh water pan.

As note above I would not expect to see massive amounts of water until shutdown. The small amount generated on startup may just evaporate in the tray on the back of the frig.

I just replaced our broken tube as well. On our 20 ft FC it goes to the lower refrigerator vent door.

That is where my drain goes, also. By the way, if you still have the brittle white plastic drain piping, change it to a more flexible, non-hardening material. When it cracks it could cause problems. The aluminum floor of the outside refrigerator compartment is continuos and makes a waterproof threshold at the vent/door.

Mine does not go to the compartment door.
The condensation drain on my previous trailer went through the door.
This one drains through the bottom of the compartment and should come out in the top of the wheel well between the 2 tires, but I don't see it.

Mine goes in a hose in the refrigerator compartment that ends in a rectangular metal cup near the flue/heating element. I guess the theory is it will get cooked off. The tin cup has a piece of hose sticking out of it as an overflow drain.

Where does refrigerator condensation drain go?

I poured water into the catch pan in the refrigerator. I still can't see where it goes.
I'm gonna call Airstream tomorrow and ask.

From people's descriptions, it sounds like the refer drain line has been handled differently over the years. My refer drain line ends inside the refer cabinet.

I have a 2009 FC 25' FB with the Dometic 6.0 cu ft refer/freezer. The refer drain line ends at a well just inside of the refer compartment door. The drain line has a small screen at the end and is secured by a clamp.



I do not normally have much condensation inside my refer and have only seen moisture at the end of the drain line once.

We have a 2001 30' Excella. Refrig is on the curb side opposite the stove and drains directly below through a rubber tube that exits the belly pan.

My drain line is PEX tubing that disappears into the floor of the refrigerator compartment.
I wonder if it ties into the a/c drain line or goes into the gray tank.
I will call Airstream tomorrow.
