Trailer: 1978 Trillium 13 ft

We have a 1978 Trillium 1300. We have only had it for about a month. We have had water collect in the corner on the bottom bunk by the refrigerator. When we bought the Trillium the previous owner told us that it did not leak. Brought it home in the rain and all was well. A couple of times we found this water. Siliconed around all of the windows and the vent on the roof. Last night it poured and when I checked for water it was dry. This morning I noticed that the fridge was running so I turned off the power to it. Now there is a pool of water in that corner. Does anyone think the water could be coming from the fridge and if yes where is it coming from? There is a little round vent in the fiberglass beside the fridge, could it come from that? Or could it take that long for the water to run behind the ensolite before it would pool? This is driving me crazy because I can't figure it out. Any suggestions or ideas?

Are the bunks at the front.Do you have a window rock guard.If so look at where the bottom brackets are which hold legs of rock guard.This could be a leak point.

My Casita has a water drain in the floor below the refrigerator. On very humid days I have noticed water dripping from this drain.

In my Boler, while camping and the weather gets real HOT inside the camper, any ice or frost that forms around the freezer part of fridge will melt a bit and come out the door of the fridge.
Mine forms a small puddle right in the front of door.
Maybe this is your problem?
Is the floor in fridge wet?
Lay a piece of paper towel on the floor of fridge and see if it is wet after a warm night.
