Our Norcold, double wide refrigerator has a puddle of water under it every morning. The manual address this issue at all. Can any of you help us out here? We don't know what to do next. Thanks.

Verify that the defrost drip tube is positioned in the drip tray. Open the lower rear outside panel of the refrigerator to access the drip tray and tube.

Also, look inside the fridge and make sure the other end of the tube is connected to the bottom of the inside drip tray.

I have the same problem. The door gasket is cracked and not sealing properly causing condensation on the inside top of the fridge. That condensation drips and finds its way out the front of the door and onto the floor. As near as I can find out, the door gasket is not available for purchase - you have to purchase the whole door.

I spoke too soon. This problem is still a problem same as before. The tray fills up with ice and then water spills over and lands on the floor. The back of the tray is definitely lined up with the outlet tube.
When we open the outside access to the back of the frig, we can see no drain tube/hose etc. We can see nothing that looks like some kind of drain. Short of pulling the refrigerator out of the trailer and getting behind it, we don't know what to do next. Does anyone have a good idea how we ought to proceed?

Can you post a pic of the outside view? I'm surprised you can't find it.

Go to a RV place and get some drain tube hose. Worse case senerio, and temp solution, put a windshield washer hose on it for now. At least it should drain out til better fix can be had. You should also be able to access the rear of the fridge drain tray hose outlet and attach some hose as most exit thru the a hole in large cover that you removed.

Is this an ice tray? Are you saying the ice maker is the problem?

^^The ice thing is not making sense, but otherwise, it seems that the drain hose was never installed when new, or broken off up above, fell off. The factory hoses, like mine, are cheap plastic, get brittle from sun, break easily. Mine is a Dometic, and works very well.

Many fridges would have to be at least, partially removed, to gain access to hose attachment. Often times, not just a simple add a hose, to an easy to reach spigot.

When I purchased my FW new from dealer, there was no visible hose. I did transfer from old FW, to new, right on the dealer lot, as I was camped 250 miles from home, where the dealer was located. I needed the new fridge operating on propane at switching time, and looked at outside cover for drain hose. I had to remove cover, found hose coiled back behind, out of sight.
