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.

Pink ceiling

I have a 2017 Georgetown 377 XL (bought October 2018, used with 1000 miles) and the front two ceiling panels are turning pink in several locations. After some research it seems to be a problem with the glue used to attach the panels. Identified this to the dealer early 2019 and in December 2019 they finally received factory authorization to replace the panels. New panels have been received at the dealer, but the number of hours authorized to perform the work is extremely short to complete this work, leaving me with a $1100+ bill to get the work done. The dealer suggested to spray paint the panels, but the thought of doing that on the soft vinyl doesn't see to make sense. Anyone else here have this problem and any suggested solutions.

Says who?
Sounds like the dealer isn't willing to do the warranty work at the rate the factory is willing to give them and has put the burden on to you.
Is there something more to the story?

No that's the extent of it. Dealer quoted about 20 hours to remove and install everything, and factory only authorized 4 hours. Dealer said I needed to feel lucky they even agreed to do that much. Really kinda disappointed, was expecting better service response.

Sounds like the dealer is looking to make a quick buck off you. Warranty repairs cost dealers money as the labor rates are lower. This the main reason they don't do warranty work unless you bought from them. I kind of believe that's why they charge $150 an hour to offset. Just my opinion based on what I've seen!

Contact the factory.
Your dealer isn't treating you fairly.

The dealer has a contract with forest river to do the warranty work at an agreed price. It is up to the dealer to negotiate with FR for any increase adjustments. The dealer made its money off of your sale and then off of future non warranty work. Of course if they do not treat you well under the warranty then why would you go back for non warranty work.

Good luck.

It has been many a hectic month, since this first started, but it is looking like everything is going to work out. The service manager at the Dealer has been working hard with Forest River and I just got off the phone with the factory and the coach is going back to Elkhart to get fixed. It will be gone for 4 months, and the plan is to remove the entire roof, put the coach back onto the assembly line, and replace everything that got damaged by water. I am just speechless and grateful for both the dealer and Forest River for getting this taken care of. There is still much to do, and it is disappointing that it had to be done, but I am so thankful that it is working out. Of course more info and updates to follow.

Wow! Glad to assist. I just gave you a contact that I know and is committed in making Forest River a better manufacturer.
I personally know him and met him and the CEO a few times.
Glad things will work out for you.
The sad part is you will miss your baby for 4 months.
