Covering roof fridge vent

So I thought I had my leak fixed and after some more rain today...... NOPE! So, the access door on the outside of the rig is vented. Do I neeeeed a roof vent? Can I add a fan to the back of the fridge to help vent? I have no idea how the hell Its still leaking. So, I wanna do away with it completely and then I KNOW its sealed. Thanks for any input!

In short, yes, you need the roof vent for the fridge.

Leaks can be tricky, sometimes they will travel a long way before they show themselves. You may just be looking in the wrong place.

New roof

I installed a new EPDM roof on my MH last month, while I had the old rubber off I made the decision to get rid of the TV antenna and the fridge vent, I blanked off both areas inside and out and renistalled the new EPDM roof. The antenna area was a constant leak problem and the firdge vent wasnt much better.

I removed the old fridge that was propane and electric and installed a smaller house type fridge thus the decision that I no longer needed the roof vent. I left the outside wall vent fully functional for venting and access to the back side of the fridge.
