Dometic Freezer Icing Up

Hi there, we have noticed that in our 2019 30í International Signature the freezer ices up a lot along the back wall. We have it under covered storage at a facility (in TX) that also has electricity so we have our trailer plugged in and the fridge is on. I generally keep the light on at a two or three level. The fridge, when we are not using it, is not that full and the fridge seems fine. The freezer however has a lot of ice along the back. Iíve defrosted it and noticed that after a week there is a thin sheet of frost again. I have some frozen veggies and fruit, some pastry sheets, and a small ice cube tray so itís not very full.
Iíve made sure both fridge and freezer doors are closed tightly at all times.
Any suggestions to what may be causing this? Iím thinking a poor seal and if so, we have our one year maintenance checkup with our dealer in a couple of months so hopefully that can be taken care of, but Iím hoping that someone out there might have a solution or some ideas before then. Thanks!

We keep a couple of cheap plastic place mats taped together to cover the entire back of the freezer and just take it out to clear off any ice that has formed. Just flex the plastic and any ice will just fall off.
