Possible Leak

We have a starcraft TT and I was cleaning today and noticed some brown streaks coming down inside of upper cabinet and the kitchen walls. I clean the streaks and they came off with no residue left behind. Walls don't show any signs of water damage. Any ideas where these brown stains could be coming from. Leakage from the gutter or what.

Sounds like humidity issue. The moisture builds up in a closed camper and the extreme heat makes the walls sweat. Do you air the camper during real hot days Or leave some windows open to allow circulation? If not the heat will cause the walls to sweat and run. Pics would help so we can see how much youíre talking about. I always keep windows cracked for air flow. Donít need any mold issues from the condensation build up.

If there has been no recent rain or dew, or you haven't washed it, it's condensation. Keep it aired out.
If you want to be sure there are no leaks, wet it down and check the walls.

do u think it could be coming from the ac drain gutter since it is brown which is dirt most likely. If it was a water stain would it still wipe off? We have had several storms since i have been inside. Our humidity here in san antonio is terrible and we have had the TT closed up for a few weeks. thanks again for your advise and time

I would suggest getting on a ladder and checking your roof for cracks and making sure everything protruding through the roof is sealed real good. But the fact that it has been closed for weeks and humidity is high leads me to this being condensation. Still it never hurts to check the chalking around everything. Good luck but from what youíre saying it doesnít sound like anything serious.

I have a 27 foot 5th wheel. I installed MAX AIR no fan roof vents. They stay open 24/7 unless we have the heat on. No condensation problem. I have one on the motorcycle trailer that I have never closed. Not even when traveling. Just be sure it is installed in the right direction.
