Yellowish Spots on Ceiling of FR3

Anyone noticing yellowish spotting across the ceiling? Looks like in a line parallel to the seams that are covered with molding about 2 inches from the molding.

A form of "putty" is used to hide nail/staple heads in the ceiling. Maybe yours have discolored? Ours are totally white and can only be seen if you look at them at an angle.

yellow spots in celing of FR3

I have the same thing. The white ceiling has brownish yellow spots. They are scattered throughout coach - not in a line. Almost looks like something seeping. Anyone know what this is? Coach is new. We are on trip. We will return to dealer to fix in two weeks.

So what can be done about these "yellow" spots? I'll flip out if I see this happen to ours...

What type of ceiling do you have? Do you have LED lights? The LED lights give off what could be considered shadows or lines on the ceiling.

I noticed them right off and tried to clean them off but nothing worked. Dealer had no idea what or why or how to fix it. Not that noticeable to most people but I see them.

I see a few on our ceiling, also. No idea what they are or what caused them. I guess we need to watch & see if any new ones come up.

On my other fiver, I had those too, but to me it looked like it was wood filler that had changed color over time. My ceiling interior was white and they seemed to be where there may have been mounting staples/nails.

I reported it and they didn't fix it.

They told me it is the glue that is used in the ceiling, some bled through. The dealer did his bets to clean it but apparently there is no way to remove completely.

After reading this thread last year when I got my coach, I noticed mine immediately. They run the entire length of the coach front to rear and look like a constellation map in the sunlight. The dealer can't remove them. They have agreed to sub-contract the job out to have the entire ceiling painted under warranty. As I'm on the road so much, job won't be done until late next month or early June.

Update: Last item to be repaired under warranty. Dealer sublet the job out and it looks better than new. The entire headliner was painted front to rear. No more spots or constellations as I referred to them. Dealer had it the coach for one week and it was well worth the wait.
