Refrigerator drip

We have a Dometic refrigerator/freezer that is constantly dripping water from the cooling coils. There is a collection tray, and a drain tube. It appears to be open. Water collects in the bottom of the refrigerator. Any thoughts?

A lot of humidity in the air which attaches to the fins quickly each time you open the doors. Then it defrosts and drips into the drain.

If yourgetting a lot of condensation on the fins you may also have a leak in the door seals or the drain hose may have come off your rotted allowing hot air into the refrigerator

drip tube

The water should drain out the drain tube to exterior. Is the tube plugged?

Precisely. My norcold 1200 had the same issue. The previous owner installed an Amish cooling unit and they didn't completely connect the drain tube to the catch basin. So water draining along the back if the fridge and onto the carpet. :(. Finally found the culprit and fixed by pulling fresh hose through the back and zip tied it to the basin nipple. Also. Check your water line (if equipped) going to the ice maker. Mine cracked and added to the water getting soaked into the living room carpet.
