Staple Filler Issue Mess

Contacted FR about what I think is a staple filler issue/mess. FR says I need to place in shop for warranty repair.

That's all great except I've just got trailer fully loaded after being in shop
for slide out replacement. Not fun unloading and storing items.

This is where you Smart folks come into play.
First noticed issue on first trip out in July of 2019.
I'd see an area and by the time the wife would get around to looking she was unable to see what I was seeing. Funny thing was, I'm no longer seeing what I thought I had seen.
Same thing for the rest of the 2019 camping season, I'd notice a spot and then not be able to see it next day to clean it off.

Fast forward to last week and the wife and I were getting trailer stocked and cleaned up for the year.
Needed to take a break and upon sitting down I noticed one of these areas and was able to take a picture of what I'm seeing.
Turns out it's the natural light that highlighting these areas thus explaining why I would notice and then be unable to locate.

Pictures are from the ceiling area in front slide out. Had to use zoom in order to capture image.
It's like trying to get a photo of Big Foot, within 5 minutes, the natural sunlight changed position and we could no longer see it.
We tried plain soap and water and nothing transferred onto paper towel.
Used different light sources and have been unable to locate spots captured in photo.

Any ideas on what this might be and the Safest way to remove it when I'm
able to see it.

On our 2019 MicroLite I used a dry terry cloth towel. If itís an oil based filler you might try alcohol or mineral spirits in a hidden area To see if it will come off. Good luck.
