The Ghost in the Cabinet

So, I'm working in the bedroom of my 26.5 RLS fifth wheel this afternoon. The vent is closed and the lights are off - and I notice a strange "glow" coming through a crack in the cabinet beside the bed.

I think - "Is there some kind of light back there that is burning my battery power?"
Is so it must be an LED light on the back of the USB charging station next to the bed.
So I unscrew the charging station and pull it out - and there is a very strange yellow glow coming from behind the cabinet.
Is my rig haunted? Did an Amish elder pass away while assembling my bedroom? What is going on?
You can see from the photo below, the strange yellow glow coming from the opening where I removed the charger (and NO this has not been photo shopped.) You can also see the small inspection mirror I grabbed to try and see what, in that cabinet, was making that erie glow.

Bragging rights to the fist person who can guess where the light was coming from.

Aww you guys made this too easy. Yes it was sunlight. But I was surprised the fiberglass was so transparent.

I kept seeing this in the back corners of my wardrobes next to the bed when I was wiring for my solar kit. I was sure I had a leak somewhere because there seemed no way the Fiberglas would glow like that. No leaks just bright sun!

Hmmm. Let's see, yellow glow, some space behind the cabinet.
Are you sure you didn't have something like this stashed back there giving that yellow glow? I don't think she's Amish, however.
