2004 Monaco Sig Outside access door leaking

i've just about completed the process of replacing the old Norcold frig with a new Samsung frig but my outside access door is leaking. I've replaced the old damaged floor and lowered it for the height of the new frig. I've sealed up the access door vents but when it rains water is coming in around the edges of the door. I don't want to seal it up because we may need access to the back of the frig to get to the water line. I thought that some of you that have replaced your frig may have had the same issue. I tried a thin rubber seal but it prevented me from closing and securing the lock pins at the top. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I would put a small raised rail at inside bottom back edge. So water that gets in edges runs out. The old drip hose may have been sealed to original drip lip.

It would be nice if we could find a thin rubber gasket or a way to make a thin gasket the we could glue on the inside if the door that would allow us the close the access doer.

I have a residential frig, but havenít had any water getting in through the access panels. I havenít replaced the seal, but I did use silver peel and stick tape to cover the vent holes on the access panels. I did this to prevent insects from getting in. With the residential frig, you donít need venting. You might try this.

I used some 1/2" x 1/8" thick weather stripping on my rear electrical cover. It should work well on your fridge door.
They have a variety of sizes.

I don’t have a seal on my door. What year and model is your coach? May be that’s my problem, no seal. I just found a rubber seal that is 1/16 thick. But it doesn’t look like it has any adhesive on the back.
