Fridge and freezer is working perfectly, inside the fridge and seals are all dry.
NO ice maker either.
The plates are not dripping, the drain line from inside to the back compartment is not the source. Over 3 days the condensation would happen randomly a 1-3 times in 24 hours. I put a make shift foil drip tray in to keep an eye on the water volume. Once home I pulled the roof vent off to make sure nothing was blocking it. All looks clear in the compartment.
I can't think of the source of the water in the back other than if the cold side of the coils (see foil AC tape box in the picture) is not sealed, but here was never a drain for the cool side coils box at the bottom back of this unit hence the mystery. It is only clear condensation but much more than it should be to run into the floor of the rv. TO be clear it drips from the red mark in the picture then travels on the wood base under the fridge.
With the fridge working well, I'm going to put a makeshift drop pan as it has a half inch of space underneath. I can run a PVC tube siliconed from the tray into the bottom of the outside vent with a small drill hole......Not ideal but with the fridge working I don't see the value in pulling the fridge out or replacing it at this point with a small hassle. If i did not find a solution it would have clearly rotted the under cabinet in the fridge well.
This is a 3 year old TT so this is not what I'd call normal to be dropping so much condensation out of the back bottom edge.
