2020 BS 3226 with water on floor under res frig-NO ice maker

We have the optional Whirlpool residential frig with NO ice maker. It has been raining the last 12 hours here on the central CA coast, and we just noticed a small puddle of water on the tile floor. With a flashlight we can see a small "stream" of water flowing from the forward rear of the frig towards the front on the osb (or something similar) panel the frig is mounted on and dripping onto the tile floor. I see nothing outside under the slide and just a few very small droplets on the rear side wall of the slide. The slide topper covers the edge of the slide by at least 4".
We pulled the bottom drawer out of the frig and see no water on the bottom of the frig. There is nothing in the manual about defrosting--so apparently no hose to the outside.

Of course with the rain/showers there is high humidity, which could cause condensation on the side & back of the frig. Newmar has been installing these frigs for years--so if there is dripping the FL rvers would have been screaming and Newmar would have corrected it.

Has anyone had this problem, and if so where is the water coning from.

Try and see if the problem is the duck bill on the rear of the fridge where the condensate drips into a pan
I had the problem as well as others
You will need to pull the fridge out and trim the duck bill off so the water can drip out better. Dont know why but it causes water on bottom of freezer which makes it's way to the front and drips on the floor
