corner drain holes

I t rained a little this past week end here in lower main land British Columbia. Just kidding. It was almost flooded.
I was putting the adco cover on the bff (big foot forever)when I noticed water dripping from the front left corner. I put a stick in the hole and water rushed out. Put the stick in further, there must be about three inches of space before it hits the floor or some thing. Anyone with a big foot experience this? I'm thinking its from the fridge vents? I've got a fan facing that direction from the cupboard door on the floor to dry out what ever water my be there. had no time to remove the vents.

Any thoughts?

The first place I would check would be the seal between the window frame and the fiberglass shell. I had a leak on one window and resealed all of them with butyl tape. They were originally sealed with foam tape and silicone. Only one of mine was leaking but the remainder of them were in very poor condition. Water ran down the wall and on the floor. Those drain holes drain the floor also. Check the walls for wet areas too.

Escapes and perhaps BigFoots have drain holes to allow any condensation or water that entered the unit to escape. The perimeter is lower than the floor and these weep holes allow the escape of the liquid. Keep them open as you would the drain holes in your windows.
Never in doubt, often wrong
