What would have caused this?

We had the axles and tires replaced on our 2011 Greywolf. When we got it home and went inside, look what we found...This was not like this when we dropped it off, any ideas on how this happened?

Appears they flipped your trailer upside down and shook it a few times to replace your axle...

Have you contacted them about the damage?

Looks like water damage.

Did they detail your rig after service? If so, they could have done this, hard to tell what it is, maybe a chemical reaction?

Called them as soon as we saw it, and sent them the pictures also. They did not do anything inside, could it have been the work on the axles and jacking the camper? Could Heat cause this?

My roof was not sealed properly. New TT. Had a big rain, several inches. Found water on the floor inside in several places Our whole inside looked exactly like that. Dealer shipped it back to Forest River and they redid the whole inside and properly sealed the roof. I am sticking with water damage.

Definitely looks like water damage. Is there a roof vent above that area?

Appears to be water damage. Question, do you leave any faucets on *to bleed pressure before disconnecting water hose)? Also, probably too late to check, but is the drain closed in the bath sink, or the kitchen sink? Looks like someone applied water to the camper, and a sink flooded, or a bath tub. These don't have overflows like a house does. Easy to do, has happened to us on the lot, getting one ready.

The Roof vent is in that area. That would explain both sides.

Roof vent was either left open or leaking.
