Fridge vent leak

I have had my sport inside all winter and pulled it outside a couple weeks ago and have noticed a leak under the fridge when it rains. Anyone else have this problem. It was a windy rainy nite last night so maybe it's coming in from the vents on the side.

Thanks for you help.

Wind driven rain can quite well cause that issue.

Thanks Andy . I wonder if I upgrade the vents from the plastic to the metal vents would help this problem.

Just had mine fixed at Airstream of New England. They said they sealed up around where the plastic meets the frame. I won't pick up until next week as the back window has a leak as well. Waiting on The factory I guess. Good thing I had it stored inside this winter.

The service guy is also going to move the fridge freezer drain so that it is almost out of the vent and pointed down so that it will drain properly. I will take a photo after the work is complete.
