should there be anything coming out of my vent tube for the fridge?

I can honestly say i have never really noticed any moisture dripping from the vent tube. Its a dometic fridge in a 2008 damon challenger. So my question is this....should be moisture present when the fridge is on?

If your talking the small tube that eather is in the metal cup or sticking out the refer outside cover, not all the time you might see some after it's turned off and the fins in the back of the box melts off the ice build up but it's not going to be steady

The top side of that "tube" should be connected to a drip tray under the cooling fins in the frig (lower portion of the frig). Ours becomes clogged every couple of years and requires blowing out with air. You should take out the small bug proofer on the outside end before air pressure is applied or be prepared to spend 30 minutes looking for it. Don't ask how I know this last tidbit....

Down here on the Texas Gulf Coast (high humidity), there's usually water dripping out of the tube intermittently. If I pull the cover and let the tube drop, I'll normally get a pretty good slug of water.

Sounds about right.

I took the little dap off mine. It drips pretty regularly when it's hot and humid. The little bowl will run over as it can't evaporate it fast enough. I stick the tube out one of the slats in the access door. I wrapped the exposed part in black electrical tape to please the DW.

I just walked out and looked at mine and the tube is dripping water, so I guess the answer is yes it does drip I really hadn't thought of it before.

Hummm ... I am wondering if mine is hooked up right. I live in south Louisiana and I have not seen mine dripping anything. I have only had my MH for about 3 weeks but the fridge has been running the entire time.
