Adler Barbour fridge drain.

Drain in my refrigerator is plugged? It's installed in a 2001 Beneteau 331.
Can't trace to where it drains, can't find a sump switch. Help!

Dont have a beneteau sorry but dont most just drain into the bilge? mine does. did you try a drain snake? by the way...when in use i read its beneficial to put in a plug in the drain to keep the fridge colder longer as cold air is heavier than warm air. if the fridge drain is left open when in use the cold air will settle out into the bilge as the warmer air in the fridge rises.

Re: Adler Barbour fridge drain.

Refrigerator drains are an energy sucker....
Plug them up to stop pulling smelly bilge air into your box.

I got it figured out. No it doesn't drain to the bilge it is hooked into the shower sump. Have to switch the valve from shower sump to reefer sump. But thanks for the input and thanks for the advice about the plug !
