Black marks inside after storage

I was cleaning out the inside of my RV after storage and found along one side these black marks. I could see it on the DW seat and the chair behind till the door to outside.

I do take it out once a month to keep it running, but did not pay attention to the marks till I clean it out for a fall trip up north. At first, I thought it was coke spill on the seat arm rest. Then I notices more marks on top of the seat and on the seat behind.

It cleaned up with a simple leather cleaner, but I was wondering if anyone else has seen this.

It like there was a bird or some insect above the chair. It did not appear anywhere else in the unit (not on driver side, not on leather couch behind driver seat, not on dinette next to couch.

So it appears to be limited to DW side. It was not on the dash in front of seat either.

Sounds like possibly mold or mildew. Don't know where you are located but we would have that issue here in AL if I didn't use Damp Rid.

How about a teenage son or daughter? A lot of strange things happened in my dad's car.
