Leak under refridgerator

We have a 2009 Cardinal 3100RK. Our refrigerator is located in the rear corner of the slide out. There are 2 vents for air circulation on the outside of the side. Recently we have had many days of constant rain. While searching in the storage area under the fridge, I noticed the carpet was soaked. The refrigerator is running fine. No obvious leaks on the roof. Has anyone any suggestions? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

Have you checked the drainage hose from the fridge for cracks/holes? Is it still attached to the outside cover?

My hose was up and inside the compartment.
I had to fish around inside to find it when I first took the camper home.
It needs to be routed through one of the lower vent slots so the drainage leaves the camper.

Many thanks to you! You nailed the problem. Not only was our hose loose but it was brittle from the extreme heat of 3 years in Las Vegas. I guess a sun shade doesn't prevent alll damage!
