White Hawk Refridgerator drain?

We just got a White Hawk 28 DSBH. We are currently camping in hot and humid temps. With my past travel trailers I always noticed a corrugated drain line coming out from the Refridgerator access panel. The White Hawk doesn't have this. So I opened up the access panel to see what was in there. What I saw was a tube for the condensation to flow into a drip pan. In my case the drip pan was half full of water.

My concern is where does this water go when it's time to leave? Seems to me it would splash all over behind the fridge causing all sorts of issues.

Is this some kind of design flaw?? Is there a remedy?

Our 2013 Jay Flight has the same thing. I have looked at ours and seen a small bit of water....my guess is that it evaporates. Still, doesn't seem to be the best solution. I guess you could pull the little tray out and dump it before traveling....

According to the manual on my Jayfeather, it evaporates out of the tray by the heat from the fridge cooling.
