Water Under Rugs

We installed rugs to cover the hallway between bedroom and living area. They are held down using corner adhesive patches. Noticed yesterday that all three rugs were damp to the touch and when I pulled them up there was water under. Not a flood but concerning in any regard.

Checked all plumbing for leaks. Under sink area is bone dry. Both hot and cold for 10 minutes and still bone dry. Shower is 6 feet away and floor space around base of shower is bone dry. The dampness is at least 8 feet away from the shore water inlet and 6 feet away from the bathroom and all tank outlets.

No signs of condensation on windows, etc. All window ledges dry. Roof hatches are closed on the road and no sigh of water when open or closed.

So where is this water coming from. I've pulled the rugs up and intend to leave them up until I understand whats going on.

Theory: The rugs have rubber backing (no slip). We are in southern Utah on a 5 week trip through the area. Night time temperatures are low 40s and day time in high 60s mid 70s by 10 am or so. Could the temperature changes create condensation under the rugs. Flooring seems to be linoleum-like product.

Anyone experienced anything like this? If so how did you solve it?
