Help with water leaks

From what I have gathered my ownership experience for the last year has pretty much gone without a hitch. On our last outing however we had water entry while driving in the rain. The first time I chalked it up to just very hard blowing rain, but the second time it was just a normal constant rain, nothing very hard. The water seems to be coming in somewhere around the fridge and drips down into the small cabinet below then across the floor. All the bathroom and roof vents were closed with no indication of a leak. There a small amount of water in the exterior fridge compartment but it doesn't seem to me to be the quantity that there is inside. There is no leaking when we're stationary. We've traveled about 12,000 miles and been in the trailer about 60 nights so far and have been is similar weather without issue. As far as I can see there's been nothing that has shifted or moved in the fridge compartment and things look fairly well sealed up.

Anyone else experience this? We are still under warranty, unfortunately the closest dealer is 5 to 6 hrs away.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated because I am baffled.

One easy thing to check is the fridge drain line. There should be one, and it should be unobstructed and free of leaks. There's a tray that collects the condensate from the fins inside the fridge, that has the drain line connected to the bottom of it.

To learn to see below the surface, you must adjust your altitude

Thanks Jammer. Drain line is clear and it's only when driving in the rain that the leaks happens.
