Seneca Water Leak?

Seems as though we have a water leak under the refrigerator. I've checked all drains etc. Looks to me that it may be coming in through the furnace vent. Anyone see that and what did you do?

Thanks, Terry

Blew clean through with compressed air. All secure.

Is that a removable vent under the refrigerator that is visible in the pictures? If so, how about taking the vent off and taking a close look with a flashlight? Sometimes even when a leak is dried up there are visible signs of the path of the water; you might find some clues.

Did you check the small drain on the drip tray inside the fridge? We had a problem with that, the little hose was crimped and leaking. Did the exact same damage as yours. It's on the l/h side of the fridge, you have to look under the drip tray to see it.

I did, and saw that it was running into the exterior compartment. I'll go back and recheck. Thanks!

. I think it's coming in through the furnace vent. Has anyone seen that before? Looks a bit corroded. I've covered it with a magnetic square and will recheck after tonight's rain. (Furnace is off!)

Is anything else in the compartment with the furnace? Wasn't long ago another member thought his was leaking from the furnace or fridge. Turned out to be the anti-siphon valve for the black flush incorrectly installed in there. Just trying to eliminate possibilities.

Nothing else. We are in the middle of a severe thunderstorm so good time check in the morning.

We were in New Mexico, away from the coach, and a thunderstorm with killer wind came through. We found water around the heater return vent like your damage. No roof leaks. Slide seals tight. Fast forward to me rinsing the coach after a wash and found water inside. Turns out the outside vent at the refrigerator allows water to puddle on the refrigerator platform with a near-vertical wind or hose stream. No more water when washing, but the weather issue, I don't know.
