Refer Condensation Water

Where does yours end up?
When we bought our MH, the drain stuck out thru the louvers on the side.
I fabricated a condensation tray that works.. sort of..
I am pulling the fridge tomorrow to do the ice maker tube and to install RV Cooling Warehouse's condenser cooling fan unit.
I think I can drill the fridge deck and the floor into the tank section and run a hose thru the bottom of the coach. Has anybody done this, or some other solution I should consider???
Thanks for the input.

My 2001 Dolphin drains out the bottom of the coach. It drips on the front side of the rear tire.

Type of frig??? Probably a Dometic? In reading information from the frig repair sites they say that a "thru the fins" drain must have a "P trap" in the discharge line. Where it goes from there is not a problem...

Yes, in fact they specify running the tube out of the top fins so you do create a
P-trap. Plus make sure the tube has a bug plug in the end to keep the critters out.

Thought I would close this thread...
Our fridge is a Dometic 1292. The installation instructions say to drill the fridge deck and route a drain dose down thru the bottom of the coach.
I was replacing the deck material anyway so installing the hose into the tank area was easy. All I had to do was remove a chunk of filler foam and shove the hose thru an existing hole where a wire bundle and some PEX water lines pass thru the floor. This spot is aft of the furnace under the fridge deck and directly into our tank chamber. I drilled a 3/4 inch hole in my new fridge deck and it was done. The bitter end drops thru the bottom of the coach next to the freshwater tank overflow. I have the critter screen in the end of the hose!
