Norcold Refer Dripping Oil?

Now this is something I have never seen before. Just got to a campground and the refer is oozing, dripping oil from the two handles.

Freezer is frozen and refer part is cold. The oil is coming out of the bottom, of the freezer door over the handle.

There is nothing with oil in it above the refer and the oil is not in the freezer compartment.

Any ideas?

What is in the cabinet above the refer than may be leaking?

Pots and pans and a thermos. I checked there and there is nothing coming down from above.
The oil is definitely coming out of the handles both the front and back side. So weird! Like it is coming from the insulation inside the freeze door but there is no path of oil leading to the handles.

OK I am getting forgetful.

I found a line of melting butter along the freezer door outside the seal. I forgot a stick of butter last trip in the freezer door shelf and what had melted and passed the seal is again melting as it is over 100 outside.

Now I feel stupid but thanks for the help again.
