Damp storage box on a 2860DS

I just took delivery on a 2860DS.
Left side middle storage box below Hot water heater vent was covered inside with condensation this morning.
It was a humid night and there are no leaks coming from Hot Tank (under sink
Is this box located below Water storage tank? Is this box typically susceptible to dampness?
Doesnt seem like a leak ,no drip no puddle just a film of condensation in the entire box.
Help please.

If it was closed when it was wet inside, it will stay wet until left open to dry out. Those compartments are really sealed well

In the back of that compartment may be a black plastic cover. It is over the water filter and pump. Check there and make sure you don't have a leak. Water filter canister needs to be tight to prevent leaks. If leaking water would accumulate in that compartment.

Water tank

Fresh water tank is under the bed. I have never had an issue with any compartment as long as I closed both latches securely. Leaving one latch undone may allow moisture in.
