Anyone familiar with these yellow stains

Noticed these yellow looking stains on the ceiling of my cab just behind the TV. Hopefully the pictures post correctly here, otherwise i will need to give it another try. Does anyone have experience what this yellow stain stuff might be?

Looks like glue bleed through to me, cannot be sure but is sure what it appears to be. Definitely should not be doing that. I would contact the dealer.

My first inclination would be water...but I've never see it that yellow. Plus, if it was water it would normally flow out of the nearest hole...which in the case looks like the light....BUT, there is an orphan island too.

Have you tried wiping it with a vinyl cleaner or non-amnia cleaner?

The other thing it reminds me of is a reaction of plastic. We had a plastic part that when we installed it, it was bright white, but after exposure to air, it turned pink...like full on flamingo pink after a few weeks.

Isnt that around the area where the gps and satellite antenna are cut through the fiberglass? Might be a leak causing the glue to bleed through

I'd say check above that area for a roof penetration. We blow off the roof, use self leveling adhesive, but even a tiny amount of dust or oil, just in the right spot can prevent adhesion.

Could be glue bleed through, but I would hope someone would have seen it before now.

Very strange looking. I would definitely rule out a roof issue immediately, go from there. Keep us posted.

I continued to investigate this more hardened material on the cab ceiling (as compared to the softer ceiling material used throughout the rest of the Force HD (DX3 with a cab). I am finding yellow spots throughout the cab ceiling area. The hardened ceiling material is not glued to anything above it - the material can be moved up and down (not much play here). Moreover, I noticed a yellow substance used to cover-up the staples in the cab ceiling trim. Also noticed some pencil marks the installation team left. I double checked the cab - it appears to be a one-piece form-fitted cab; not sure how water could enter this area. Uploading a few more pictures to "try" and show the yellow substance used to covered-up the trim staples, but it is difficult to capture, and it is difficult to see this yellow stuff without the right type of lighting.

I'm thinking - this is not a water leak; it is either defective material from the supplier, or the installation team inadvertently got some of the yellow stuff on the material. I cannot think of anything else - not knowing much about how the cab ceiling is installing. Mr. Clemens - can you run this by your cab ceiling installation team and see what they say. Either way - wife says it has to be fixed.....yes ma'am.

The staple holes are just poor matching putty. Off-white instead of bright white.

I don't think that is the main issue. Where are you located? I'd love to get a first hand look at it.

And yes...we'll get it squared away.

Mr. Clemens - I am currently located at the Travel Camp aboard Fort Belvoir, VA. A former Marine living aboard an Army Post... Nice place though.

I took another photo - tried to get as close as i could without distorting the picture. Hopefully this helps.
