Fireplace Air Leak

We have a 35ROK. We just returned from a trip and noticed that the fireplace builds up condensation on the inside of the glass. When we took off the front panel of the fireplace, we could see through to the outdoor kitchen (on the back side of the fireplace). We have not noticed this before. Has anyone had this happen? Has insulation shifted between the fireplace and the outdoor kitchen or is this just the way it is. Warm air can be felt inside the 5th wheel coming from the fireplace (outside air). Thanks for any suggestions.

Though it may not be air-tight or insulated, I'd expect that the fireplace would be fully enclosed. In the area that is open, what is the construction, sheet metal, open seam/corner?

When I take off the fireplace front, I can see the back of the speakers in the outdoor kitchen. There is a wall (of sorts) that the speakers are attached to, but I expected insulation of some sort. We've only had the 5th wheel since May (new), but only had this problem this last week.

I think if you want to do something about it, it would be easier to remove the fireplace, cover any opening that you find and re-install.
