Leak Under Refrigerator

My 2007 Cardinal 29LE has started leaking in the cabinet underneath the refrigerator. There are drips of water coming down from 2 locations (see attached photos). One is where the yellow cable comes out towards the back and one is in the wooden frame on the edge by the front. I have checked inside the fridge and there is barely any water standing in the catch tray under the metal fins so I know it's not coming from that. I removed the outside access panel behind where the fridge is and there's a small trace of moisture in there, but not nearly as much as is collecting inside.

Does anyone have any ideas? It has been raining off and on over the past week since I noticed this so I can't rule out that it's not coming from the roof exhaust area outside. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
Casey

Check the outside drain line , it may have deteriated inside the fridge and that could be your leak problem.

X2. The outside drain end has to lower than the water collection point. Otherwise the collector will spill over and run out onto your floor. Most hose exit points are located at the outside cover for your frig. See if lowering the hose causes water to exit the drain pipe.

Do any of you have an ice maker in your fridge? I just went thru replacing a control module as a result of the cooling unit condensing and dropping a fair amount of water on the module. The repair tech insulated the cooling unit line that comes out of the fridge and empties in to the recovery tank directly above the control module. He advised this is common.

Tried to look up floor plan of your unit could not find it. Is your fridge in a slide out or in the main unit. If it is in the main unit you may have a leak coming in from the vent on the roof. We too have been in the FL rains. The leak may be worse depending on which way the rain and winds are blowing as it can affect how the roof drains.

Thought we had a fridge leak as water was on the floor below fridge.
The leak was coming from the side top fridge vent. Dealer build a inch high wall of caulk just behind vent. So far so good.
