I am struggling with your explanation. The fridge, in essence is a heater, so the air circulating around its exterior vents will be warmer than ambient, so condensation can't happen. I think the water is from somewhere else. On every RV I have ever owned, all of the wood surrounding the fridge at the back is dry as the desert.
Agree with you on Forest River. If they told Dometic to build a pink and purple fridge or lose the contract, Dometic would comply. Same with the fan...they could / would upgrade to a quieter setup if a) enough people complain, and b) we are collectively willing to pay more for quality.
