This pic is from the crawling(EDIT...ceiling) of my bedroom slide out....if it's mold from a leak I'm not sure how that could be since I store it in covered storage and it's only rained on me a handfull of times camped with the slide out extended.
I do have a slide out topper over this slide... Thanks in advance for your opinion.

Don't open beer or coke in bed. Really it looks too light to be mold but looks more like condensation stain. Do you keep a top vent cracked during storage?

I had a different RV that had that same look on the ceiling of the slide and it was a leak which was pooling water on top of the ceiling. I hope I'm wrong but that is my bet.

No. It is a water stain. If you can find the leak soon you should be ok. Once you find the leak and no new stains appear, try a 50/50 bleach water solution. Carefully dab it with a damp rag on the area. DO NOT let it drip on to your carpet! I am a drywall contractor and for small stains this has worked for us many times over.

Yeah we keep the two vents open while in storage...our coach rarely sits for longer than about 4 weeks at the longest cause we use it so much.

The stains in the pic have a redish tint to them and they seem to be between the vinyl ceiling fabric and whatever stuff it's adhered to. I will try the bleach mix, that's a good idea.

Maybe glue stain coming through from humidity or a leak.

I think what you are seeing is a water stain colored by the luan plywood which is the next layer in the laminated roof section. I had a couple of places like that, the worse one was from a leak in the antenna coax boot.
Cleaned with bleach and water once and oxyclean the next time. Both worked equally well.
