What is clear plastic tube below fridge in 19?

In my 19' if i look in small cabinet beneath the fridge I can see clear plastic tube coming down from the fridge compartment and heading down towards the wheel well. Any idea what this is for?

I can try and get a couple photos if my description isn't making sense.

Thanks.

there is a drain in the rear refer compartment that drains underneath the trailer. For rain in the compartment and when you turn off the refer, all the frost turns to water and drains out.

Thanks. I will have to get under the trailer to see where it comes out. I have foam insulation so I hope it didn't get covered when it was sprayed.

I had a musty smell in that area so maybe some rain on in and didn't drain properly.

This is looking 'in' with the frig removed on our 2014 19'. Notice the water stains on the left plywood wall and on the white formica. I cleaned it up, replaced the caulk, and sealed any wood.

When washing the trailer I always remove the vent and drape a plastic garbage bag over the hole and put the vent cover back over. To keep spray from going into the compartment.
