Exterior refrigerator grill

I'm curious when I'm driving 65 mph in a heavy rain how water does not enter the exterior upper refrigerator grill and into the camper. It just seems like it would blow in under the louvers. Is there an internal drain? Something else?

Our 2010 has the same louver and we havenít had any problems. It is likely that some gets in but not enough to cause an issue. I was just in there for my condenser fan mod and didnít see any evidence of any water intrusion. There is a drain at the bottom.

Same vent on my 2012 5.0. I've had the fridge out several times (and will again before next trip unfortunately) and never found any evidence of water intrusion.
