    I have noticed a water leak from rear of fridge area, possibly from tap or connections, has anyone taken out a Dometic fridge from a Autoquest 130 and is it pretty straight forward ?

    is there not an external vent you could use to investigate the leak?

    I've had to take a tec tower out once and imagine yours wouldn't be much different. There are screws that hold the front edge of the fridge to the wooden frame once these are removed and the gas/electric is disconnected the fridge should slide out quite easily.

    Hope yours is easier than ours, tried to remove fridge freezer, found and took out the screws mentioned above, still wouldn't budge, our tower includes the oven, all three are attached to each other and come out as one. We gave up

    Good luck (y)

    Make sure that the condensate drain from the fridge goes into the evaporator tray and not missing and going onto the floor, it should show in the lower vent.

    Thanks funfair, I will check when back, noticed on YouTube it shows the top vent has a small pipe that requires removal from vent slot prior to unscrewing and pulling out,
    Regarding the water at back, it Is definitely coming from the taps or tubing, as when running pump you can hear it spraying at back and is dripping through back of van onto floor,
    We have emptied the water tanks to ensure we do not use it any further until we have checked what problem is,
