Looks like mildew is behind the surface paper covering. If regular cleansers don't work or plain old soap and water you might have to replace the surface.

I have to admit I thought of John Cougars song Little Pink House at first.

You got a water leak through some part of the roof. Check your seam seal on your roof.

The water penetrated through some crack of the sealant on your roof gradually soak up the plywood that FR used on your RV, eventually it wet enough to yield the pinkish color and show up on the roof lining.

It did happen to me a year ago due to some so small crack that I could not see, and it cost me $4,000 to have the roof cover pull up to dry out the plywood and replace some part of it, then replace the liner. This is not covered under any warranty or service contract.

This is my stupid mistake since this is my first RV ever and very inexperienced when inspecting the sealant. Now I learned, and it does not matter how good the seal was, I just have to dap on the sealant once a year.

What they say, about a leak. Mine was very small,had it repaired and the ceiling vinyl replaced. A year later we had the same thing happen again. This time I went through RV Roof and had a life time warranty roof put on our unit, pricey but in the long run cheaper since it is one and done. I feel your pain, and if your repairing the interior yourself it is one heck of a job, both time, stress and cost. Good luck.

What also a problem is the RV has the curve roof along both side of the RV. FR suppose to install the aluminum curve piece along the whole length of the roof on both side. If you do not have it, you should call FR and they will send the part to the local installer to install it for you at no cost. However, what leaking already inside your RV that cause the pink color, may not be warranty, however, they will sent you the ceiling material for your installer to replace it, you just have to pay for the cost.

That was what happened to me. The total cost of replacing the roof edge on both side of the RV and the ceiling material including the labor was around $12,000 and I was responsible for around $3500 of it because they have to replace 4 cover panels, they have to remove the front cabinet to reach the first panel.

It does not look like your panel has too much stain, you may not need to replace it.

Thanks for the info, I was hoping to not to have to paint, but it looks like the path I might be heading down. Just need to find a good vinyl paint that matches.
