Refrigerator Water Leak

We are staying at one RV site for a week and have our Dometic refrigerator running on electric. We have a water leak dripping from the right rear of the fridge into the cavity under the fridge where the drawer sits. The water is dripping through the area where the gas line and electric cables run vertically behind the fridge. I pulled the panel off outside and everything is very dry behind the fridge. The fridge water drain hose is dry inside and I can't tell where the leak is coming from. I shut off the water supply to the ice maker and the leak continues. Any ideas?

Most likely condensation and the drain tube is either leaking or stopped up. The ice maker could still have watewr and leak until it is drained.

I just fixed a refrigerator water leak in my '04 36 FDDS. It was the water tube to the ice maker. The tube and a heater wire are enclosed in a black plastic jacket running from the solenoid valve up to the top of the refer. The water tube had totally disintegrated for about 2 feet inside the jacket. Had to pull the refer out to get to the top where it goes into the ice maker. I didn't have anything to replace the jacket so I just wound the heater wire around the new water tube and put it all back together. So far it is working with no more leaks. I never go where it is really cold so probably could have left the heater wire out. Hope I never have to find that I made a mistake.
