Mystery Leak Cubby Under Fridge

I have a 1997 16' Scamp that I'm restoring. I've already replaced a lot of floor and fixed a lot of leaks. Yesterday I noticed the cubby area under the fridge is soaking wet. My Scamp is currently stationary, parked next to my house, not under cover. We've had massive amounts of rain lately, so I'm not sure if it's a leak from the outside or something from the fride. The fridge is functional, cools/freezes where it is suspposed to. But it is old, so I'm not sure if it could be leaking from underneath?

I've looked at the panel on the outside, the backside of the fridge, and there's nothing obvious in terms of leaking there. 

We're supposed to get more rain tomorrow so I'm planning to go out and look while it's raining to see if I can see anything coming in. 

Any other ideas on where to look or what this could be?

Thank you for any help!

Does your 16 have a fridge upper roof exhaust vent  Or just the two side panels for hot air exchange. On my 2019 13 with the two side vents ,the upper one was nolonger sealed to the body and a ton of water was entering the cabinet if the rain came from that side.  If the roof style vent look closely at it for damage or  leaks.  Also the little window above the fridge was never sealed/caulked ( OOPS ) on the very top top and it also allowed water. after I washed the roof with a hose.
