I am looking for tips on what to do to prevent water from entering through the vent behind the refrigerator and soaking my interior under the stove,sink,cabinets,etc... We noticed stains from water on the wood under the fridge and all other kitchen cabinets. This is on a Dolphin Class A 38' 2005 model. HELP!!!!

You sure the defrost tube is in its tray? Check the silicone seal around the frame. I can't see how that much water would get in unless it's blowing in.

Open the outside cover and check the caulking around the bottom of the compartment.Like a k said, be sure the drain tube drains outside.

My '90 HR did that. Water coming down from the roof, on the sidewall ran right into the compartment. I found some aluminum vent covers similar to the one over your door, and got one of the correct size, used 3M double faced tape and if solved the problem like an awning over a door.

I installed a sun roof deflector shield that was built for a Audi car. It was wide enough to cover the frig vent and was made out of dark grey plastic. You might find one at a Discount Auto store. No more water in behind the frig.

Maybe the outside cover is on upside down?
That would let rain in.
