Residential fridge help

What is the refrigerator drain for with the valve on the underside of my North Point?
I opened the valve and blew in it and it is blocked at the other end. (I can't blow air through it)

What does it "drain"?
My house fridge doesn't have a drain.

The Jayco manual says to drain the fridge before winterizing.

The ice maker line. You won't be able to blow air since the elec valve is on the other end.

I don't know about blowing out the line but just wanted to ask if anyone knew if the one battery will keep the residential fridge running while going on the road?

It is not necessary to "blow out the line" just let it drain normally. It is recommended to drain the line any time it is near freezing even if the camper is in use. The one battery will run the fridge as long as the 7 pin plug from the TV is plugged in to the RV.


A single battery will not run it long by itself. maybe a couple of hours. Also when plugged in to the TV, if the engine is not running, it may run down the TV battery if left long enough.

I ask my dealer on wintering my ice maker
They said they will find out the proper way for me
While your driving the refrigerator (residential) will run just fine why your plug in to your truck. Just did 3400 miles no issues with the refrigerator
