First step is to put together a signature via UserCP top/left of each page and save it. Year, make and model. It would also help to take some photos of this discoloration and post them. Use either the quote or advanced post feature. There is a Manage Attachments button where you can scroll and select a photo from your computer. No one knows the original color and you didn't mention if these discolorations have appeared recently and are developing or how long they have been appearing. Did you use any sort of cleaner that could possibly have made the discolorations?

I have the same issue on my passport. It appears when assembling, the crew used permanent marker on either the back of the vinyl flooring, or on the subfloor.

In my camper, it's near the center away from the slide, and in two places. They appear to be markings for lining up a drill hole or something else.

From what I've been told by others, the marker (which shouldn't have been used) is bleeding through the vinyl, there is no solution for it, you're stuck with it.

I’ve seen discoloration from heat as well. Are the spots near the center of the floor? If so, could be from heat caused by the furnace ducting below the flooring. Obviously, this would be much different than marker bleed through. The discoloration would be more blotchy.

Discoloration could also be mold or mildew underneath the vinyl
