I leave it out all the time. One less thing to remember.

Norcold Fridge Tip

I wonder if the owners manual makes any reference to the tube and how it should be routed....anyone have their manual handy?

Norcold has a small drain pan in theirs. That is where mine was routed. It routinely overflows and makes a wet mess in the back,

I've never noticed water in the drip pan. I wonder if that's because I leave the refer on all the time? Maybe the gas burner aids in evaporation and whenever we're on the road the gas is running the refer.

Just got back from a 5 day trip.

Used the propane enroute and return travel (250 miles each way). Used the provided electricity in camp.

Upon inspection today, I found the drip pan/scupper was full. Thankfully, no water damage to the plywood below the cooling unit. Hose has been rerouted.
Thanks for the tip!!!!

Was it full after you got home and shut down the refer? I thought the water in the pan was from melting frost on the cooling fins inside the refer. If I keep the refer on there is no melting until shut down which I never do.

I'll have to take a look. Our trips are usually long. Last one was 45 days and 5,000 miles round trip. That's how most of our trips are and I leave the refer on between trips too.

Hohenwald,
We arrived home , emptied the frig, and shutoff the propane and power on Monday afternoon. Tuesday afternoon, I found it full of water.

We were camping on the bank of the Frio River and it was humid.

Hope that answers your questions.

That must be the reason I don't ever have any issue. When you shut it off the cooling fins defrost and that water finds it's way into the catch can. Since I never shut mine off (except to defrost the whole unit) I never see the water.

Mystery solved. I think.
