Yes the second picture is from the inside of the camper at the bottom of the fridge between a board that serves as I guess a kick board and the bottom of the fridge. You are looking towards the exterior wall and the light you are seeing is coming from the compressor area though the cover. It seems to me the water is coming in around the edges of the cover as rain runs down the side of the camper. There is no lip or gromet or anything to stop the water from just running straight in.

Ok, so the light/gap we are seeing would be at the very bottom of the exterior hatch? You're thinking water is pooling in the bottom of the exterior access area and running in?

Yes once I discovered I could see daylight when looking between the gap below the fridge I ran the water over the outside of the camper simulating a heavy rain storm. Once I did this water came pouring in through the opening in the hatch and ran towards the front front of the fridge wear it ran down the kick lard and began pooling on the floor

Ok..... there is a topic here regarding a mod to built up the lower edge of that access hole. Can you see/reach the gap from the exterior? If so, decor (non-sag the heck out of it)
Come on forum, help us find a link to building up the lower edge to keep the water out.
I think it was a track or L angle?
