Received my blue fan a week or two ago. With no drain tube my next choice was to go though the back of the fridge along the temperature sensor tube. First problem was that I can't see where it comes out the back. I could barely reach the area through the upper outside vent. It feels like the sensor tube is covered by tape of some sort. While I was able to push a stiff wire through I couldn't get the fan wire through. After an hour or more of trying I gave up.

I'm going to run it out the front, under the door gasket, and then under the dinette which right there. The converter is right there and plenty of 12V wires to tap.

Having a hard time telling on some models. AzJerry has a Norcold 302.3 and can not find the drain. I went out to Norcolds site and the parts lists references Drip tubes and Drip trays but they are "not shown" on the diagram.

A .22 round would make a smaller hole and a small piece of duct tape (The Handy Man's Secret Weapon) would finish off the mod nicely.

Red Green, I miss that guy.

There is definitely no drain tube attached to the drip tray nor is there any obvious place where I drain tube would be. There are no holes of any sort in the tray.

That just seems odd jerry. I wonder where the designers thought the water would go?

I tried to push the wire out beside the drain tube but could never get it through. Seems I recall someone on this board did tho.
I also tried to push the wire out next to the drain tube. No way, the tube fits too snugly and I did not want the lining of the refrigerator to cut into the insulation of the wire. I also had to remove the plug from the bottom of the drain tube.
