28BHBE Water leak

Hello!
Just got my brand new TT out of storage and found a leak. Just below my fridge, where the furnace is, the wood blotted and cracked the finish. There is no trace on the floor. Can't see any leak signs on wall or A/C duct. It's like water came from behind the fridge or furnace. Took off the lower vent behind the fridge and everything is dry. Didn't check the roof vent yet. Didn't remove the furnace cover also. Fridge drain is still connected and fridge hasn't run since October of last year. It still under warranty but I'm kinda disappointed because I bought this new RV because my 2014 Gulfstream had water leaks everywhere. Otherwise I love the trailer. I'm just trying to find the leak source. Any ideas?

I found water in mine as well after closing it up for the winter, and tried to figure out where it came from. The conclusion I came up with, and hopefully I am right, is that it was water that overflowed when the fridge defrosted from being on all summer. I think it was a bit much, but can't figure out where else it could have come from. Ran either from bathroom door to storage under bunks, or vice versa. Couldn't find a leak at the storage door, so assume it came from the fridge direction. Next time I will put towels in the fridge when I shut down.

The only thing that, I think, could get water inside the coach without going through the fridge's lower vent would be the furnace vent. I know, I know my pictures are not pretty good but if water get inside via the small fins on top maybe it drains back into the furnace and then on the floor.

Watching this thread very closely..... I see you have the smooth side version, We have the extruded sides and I'm curious if the water is coming in through that area is due to just that ???

Check the back of your fridge, there is a small rubber hose that drains into a condensate pan for evaporation. On mine, it was outside of the pan when I bought the trailer.

Nope! Hose is in pan. Anyways, during summer, I put the hose out the vent so it drips outside.
