Water leaking. Refrigerator?

After we'd driven about 80 miles from our campsite we noticed water dripping from a spot on the back left underside of our 212QBW. We suspect it was from the refrigerator which had been running for a few days and had been shut off before we headed out. It is closer to the middle of the trailer, but it is on that side. It was definitely just water; no odour. However, even after 400 miles it was still dripping when we parked the trailer.

My fridge has a drain hose that goes to a drip tray. Some have routed that hose out the vent to the outside. If you open your vent you should see a similar setup. Check to see if the tray is full or if the drain hose s not routed properly.

My hose got plugged up. Open the fridge and look in the back. Mine had a little tray that collected the water and it drained out a tube that goes out the access panel on the outside of the trailer. If I recall I had my wife watch the inside and I blew in the hose from the outside and it cleared it out. Check that out. easy fix

I'm guessing the water draining is from that tube as the water is coming down near that access panel

I really don't think it is the fridge now. I went out to our storage spot and the fridge is bone dry. If it had melted frost there would have been evidence.

look at the vent on top of your roof for damage over the refrigerator. regardless i would move the drain outside the camper. salesman on one lot said if you don't move that drain hose outside you can come back in 2 or 3 years and get the rotten floor under the refrigerator replaced.

We have the same TT and discovered water leaking from the outside edge, right behind the rear wheel. Tracked it to the water pump at the bottom of the pantry. We were on city water, but the back pressure back into the pump was enough to leak from the pump housing. And that was with a pressure regulator. There is a check valve in the pump but the seal can go bad, I guess, causing a leak. I am putting a quarter-turn on-off valve on the hose coming out of the pump that connects into the distribution line. Just leave it closed until the rare time I use the pump. Eventually Iíll replace the pump. Hope that helps.
