Drain tube on new Norcold

On our new TT the norcold fridge has the drain tube ran into a small cup in the back of the fridge. Traditionally RV refridgerators have the tube running out of the plastic vent on the side of the RV.

Should the tube stay in the little plastic tray or should I put it through the vent like most of the RV fridges I've seen? Thanks in advance

My Norcold drain tube runs from a plasic tray in the refrigerator, through the back of the refrigerator, into a small aluminum cup in back of the refidgerator...(it's been that way for 20 years, 147k miles).

Leave it the way it is. That's an evaporation tray. It will evaporate any liquid that comes from the fridge instead of dripping it outside the coach.

Norcold runs their drain tube into the evaporation cup. Dometic runs theirs out thru the vent. Just a difference in manufactures.

Norcolds have always been that way. Works fine, too.

If you ever have a problem with condensate backing up into the frig, remove the small plastic piece from the bottom of the drain tube, clean out the small holes then replace.
This piece is designed to reduce transfer of warm air back into the frig., but is normally submerged in condensate water in the evaporization cup.
