Another vote to use a moisture meter. Home inspection people will have them. Give one a call, tell them basically what you need to know and that it is in an RV for a price quote.

It's cheaper just to buy a meter than to have someone come out and test it. Then you have the meter and can use it anytime.

That does not look like most glue stains I have seen. Appears to be from moisture on the horizontal surface wicking up from the wall/floor interface. May be something as simple as water on the floor from a partially open window or more serious from a leak.

Since it's showing up in several locations on the wall I would demand they do a pressure test to confirm if you have a leak or not, and where it's coming from. Best way to determine if a leak exist.

Dealer said they would repair it but they would have to take the entire rear of the trailer off to replace the panels or put some wider trim pieces on to hide it better . We have towed it over 3000 miles and used it about 30 nights and been in several heavy rains and I can't find any sign of leaks or moisture anywhere . I really don't want them to pull the rear of trailer off to replace these panels if it's not from a leak ,but I also don't want to take an extra hit on it if I ever sell or upsize later . Would you have them repair it or live with it ?

Update on my issues above . Well I finally quit procrastinating and sent an email to Forest River with the pictures of my stains . I received a reply the next day telling me it was a relativly simple warranty repair to remove the vinyl trim and then remove and replace the panels . No need to tear the rear of the trailer off Maybe I misunderstood the service employee and he was refering to removing the whole rear of the trailer as remove recliners , rear overhead cabinets and replace panels . Anyway dealer told me ONCE they received the panels they could have it repaired the same day. The folks at Forest River were very helpful now if they will just get the proper panels delivered in a timely manner . My very good and helpful dealer will have it ready soon.Thanks to everyone for the advice and responses .This forum rocks
