Refrigerator drain line

Poking around in the lower refrigerator compartment over the weekend and noticed that, in what appears to be the condensate drain line, a small black plug in the hose. Why would the hose have a plug that was specifically designed for that diameter hose?

If you are referring to the black drain hose coming out the drivers side of your unit, the plug is there to keep wasps out. The "plug" actually has five or six holes in it. Sometimes it may get plugged up (bad punn) and you will need to clean it out periodically.

Mine doesn't protrude outside of the vent door, it empties into a drip pan inside the vent compartment, anyone else have theirs this way?

GREAT information! Thanks, everyone. At this rate of information gathering, I'll complete my junior year of Redwood U. before we even take delivery.

I asked our dealer about the drain, that most coaches I saw had the drain extending through the vent door and why ours didn't...he said that both methods are used and either method is acceptable, he said the advantage of having the drip pan is that with this method you can secure the vents with wasp screens to prevent them getting into the refer's guts.

I added vent screens prior last year before I headed to TX for 6 months. It helps keep the critters out.

I added them to all my critter prone vents [refer, furnace & water heater] as soon as I got the coach. Better safe than sorry!!
