My drain is clogged, I tried to trace the line but it goes into the bilge someplace and I can't follow it. Does anybody know where this goes? Does it just drain to the bilge?
Anybody have any great idea on how to unclog it?

Thanks,

Steve,

Your drain line shoud run from the bottom of the refrigerator to a pump (looks like a soap dispenser) in the sink. This is the way it's configured on my 1987 P-31. I haven't had it clog up because I use a little wire strainer in the hole in the bottom of the fridge to catch bits of labels, etc. that tend to get stuck there during the season.

I would imagine that you could undo the drain line from the bottom of the pump and try blowing in it to unclog the line.

Hope this works for you!


Cheers,

I always wondered what the "soap dispenser" was for. It works like a charm now!!!

Thanks for your help.
