VENTANA LE water dripping below basement

Hello,
Just purchased 2016 Ventana 3709. Iím finding, underneath the rearmost basement compartment, (yes, where the tanks are) water (ambient temperature and clean) just along the edge (outside), right in front of the rear tires.
The pump has been off. One of the team members suggested it was condensate from the AC. After 4 hoursí drive yesterday with no AC running, it was wet again - enough to trickle down the driveway. Water tank was half full during the dayís drive.
I filled the water tank this morning. Without any driving, I see no new wetness. The carpet inside is dry everywhere I can touch.
Is there any part of the engine or transmission that produces a lot of condensate? Any ideas short of dismantling the tank bay?

If this leak is in front of the passenger duals , there is a known problem with the fresh tank overflow syphoning out water while driving . Fix is described in this link.

Appreciate the thoughts-
No rain.
Yes, I understand the overflow issue. Wish that was it. The overflow pipe drops neatly through the floor and onto the ground.
Thanks, Tom

I had a similar issue on a coach that I owned previously. It turned out to be an ice maker problem above the bay that had the moisture problem.
