Good morning Muteys! It's another beautiful day on the rainbow and mine is starting once again with a water problem. Bedroom carpet is really wet and I can't find the water leak! My first suspicion was fridge but it is dry on the back inspection from outside panel so I pulled drawers out below the closet and no water lines back there visible so the journey continues today. Got up this morning and the wet carpet is spreading over to the bathroom so I have to find this fast. Hmmmm.

If you have a Norcold ( and maybe on a Dometic as well ) there is a drain hose on the rear of the unit. It's a thin hose about 3/8". There is an end cap with a pin hole for draining the water from the defrost cycle. If that hole is clogged ( and they often are. ) it will overflow into the inside of the unit and drain out the front causing the water you found.

The end cap pulls off and usually a pin or a good blowout from the old lips works well When you pull it off you should get a healthy stream of water. This will confirm your issue.

Rowdy couple we are!
Some sort of home cooked yummie dinner, a couple o bumps of bourbon, a couple o episodes of Cracker in the DVD, and a couple o grandparents crashing into bed before 10PM......all of this while about 50 couples party until midnight in the main hall, at 50 bucks per couple, and try their best to assure their head is a couple o hat sizes bigger in the morning.

I know some STMs can easily beat my new years words.

We don't really party "Like its 1999".

Me and my girls have made a habit of going up to SilverStar Mtn and do some "Tubing" and "Skating" for a few hours. Then we drink Hot chocolate by the huge fire-pit and watch the parade of skiers with torches come down the ski hill. This is then followed by a great fireworks show.

Kinda boring but, I hate a "Big Head" in the morning.

We will be awaiting some friends that are coming back to their coach tonight. They arrive at 11:30 pm. Hopefully they will be on time and we can get back to the coach in time for some bubbley and a snack. A calm and pleasant ringing in of the new year.

Cheers !!!

Herb,
How you doing with the water leak?

In my older Winnebago there is a drain line that snakes around under the bed (King size - no storage) It got pulled off the inlet to the tank/line and caused some flooding under the bed. Fortunately it was in such a place that it was able to leak down around the neck of the inlet/tank tube.

Also, as Cliff stated but also blow up into the tube. You can reach inside the refrigerator first and see if water is standing in the back drain tank. Blowing into the tube from the outside will clear any clogs further up in the tube. Do not leave the little plug with the hole in it out. I think it is there for a purpose.

Did someone say PARTY! We have a annual event that we plan for all year! One of my sons property buts up to mine so throughout the year we pile limbs, old wood, tree trunks and anything that will burn on an old brush pile down in pasture. You guessed it, New Years Eve we invite friends, family and neighbors over and lite the Bon fire. Everyone has a good time, tailgates and lawn chairs are the decorations and serving tables and in the event fire gets out (never has) there is plenty firefighters handy.

This year with a 21 day old granddaughter Mary and I will probably stay in and ̶S̶p̶o̶i̶l̶e̶ keep the little ones, keep any that might need a restroom and or nap!

It's a big pasture, your all invited, 4wd is advised!

Hey Tim !!

Now that does sound like a fun party and either place would be great. at the fire or with the grands you could have fun at either spot !!

Cheers !!!

Been there, done that!
No way! You're supposed to use a clean sock!? Sorry Herb, Barb, Don & Sandee.

Oops! You haven't met Miya yet. Our 7 year old Husky female. If she smells it up a little higher on the pole, she'll imitate the male dog stance.

For new years, we stay home and watch the ball drop in Times Square. Sure glad we are on central time. I don't think I could make it to midnight.
