Reefer Drain

There appears to be a drain at the bottom of my cooler, but I haven't been able to figure it out. I searched the forums and found a couple of ideas. The most likely seems to be that it goes to the shower sump and than pump it overboard. However, it doesn't seem to be draining. I've just been bailing it into the kitchen sink for now.

Any ideas? Clogged?

On my 331 a valve under the sink in the head directs whether the shower sump pulls from the shower or the refrigerator. Once you switch to refrigerator, the button on the sink drains the fridge.

well, no obvious valve on the shower sump pump, but once, I had my flashlight light out I kept looking and found a threw hole in the galley marked as the icebox drain which had a valve on it. No electric pump, but it did run to the foot pump. And, that's what drains the icebox.
