Water leak in closet

I moved from Birmingham al to a pretty nice mobile home / rv friendly park today in palmetto ga. Drained and flushed black tank before leaving then filled w/3 bags of ice to break up solids. Upon arrival, I filled blank then drained again then flushed. At no time did i leave black tank valve closed long enough to overfill it while flushing. A few hours later, I went into the hall closet for something and noticed a bunch of water on some water resistant clothing so I really can't get a close measurement of soakeage. Doors were closed the whole trip. There are a few holes on the rear/exterior wall. Pics show 4 holes vertical patterned next to the adjacent wall. 2 others about 4-5 inches from the adj wall. Those 2 holes have slobber trails as shown in the pic. I'm pre-plumbed for w/d. And I'm pretty sure the toilet roof vent is in this area. The holes don't appear to be from screws or anything. Anyone else seen this? 2001 national islander?

On mine, their is an anti siphon valve in the wall between the toilet room and the closet. As I understand, its for the black tank rinse line.. I have a small cover that removes to view it. Could be that the anti siphon valve it bad? Hope you get other ideas.

That area is where the washing machine will set. Looks like someone had a washer installed and removed it. You are probably getting water out of an unplugged water discharge pipe - former water drain.
