Wetness in front of refrigerator

I have a Dometic Royale refridgerator in my coach. There is some wetness in floor in front of the fridge. I opened the outside panel and I can see some wet areas on the floor under the fridge. I can't find the source though. I don't see anything leaking, the drain line and ice maker lines appear intact. I checked the cabinets on either side of the fridge and no wetness. Any ideas?

You say the drain line is intact , but is it clogged ? There is a plastic end on mine with a pin hole for draining into a cup in the rear of the unit. If that pin hole clogs , the defrost water will wet the floor as you're experiencing. Mine is a Norcold but I believe it's the same principal.

Thanks Cliff. I removed the little plastic insert in the end of the drain hose and snaked it out with a guitar string from both ends. The drain is dry - the drain tray only has a few drops. The inside of the fridge is also dry. I'm really stumped on the source of the moisture.

I forgot the ice maker got turned on. The solenoid must be leaking - that's why I'm not seeing a water dripping. It only happens when the solenoid activates.

Hi Koop,
Yep, you're correct. Been there done that.
