Question Water damage or something else?

Bumping around the 5th I noticed the trim around the overhead cabinets looks like it's been getting wet. The first pic is looking at the rear wall. The trim is below the center section of cabinets and the problem is where the trim touches the rear wall. The second pic is a close up of the damage.
My first reaction is that i have a leak but I can't find any other evidence of water in the area. I've checked the fireplace below and inside the cabinets above and don't see any other damage or water stains.
Very interested in your opinions!

Grrrrr! Pic is upside down.
Anyway, what do you think?
Also, any idea of the source of this trim?

RH, try giving Jayco a call and ask them who they get the trim from. When I needed something similar, they provided me with the name of the vendor.

Moisture caused from low air circulation? Especially if you have a fireplace going on a cool night? Just a guess.

Qua, yeah, good idea.

Dag, maybe. We've used the "fireplace" only a couple of times so I'm doubtful that's part of the puzzle. Trying to figure out the condensation angle. Haven't found any similar issues elsewhere and haven't seen any condensation on the walls.

At this point a leak is my most likely culprit but haven't seen any other indications.

?

Could something that rode in the cabinet have spilled and caused this? Nobody is fessing to it.

Good one Cosmic but doubtful. The same trim piece on both sides of the cabinet are doing this. We've had no liquids stored up there. The unit was "last year's" model and I was thinking it leaked while on the lot and was dealer repaired but that means it's been like this for almost 2 years that we've owned it. So I'll give that one a maybe also.
I think my next move is to the roof with the hose.

If you open up the cabinet doors and look very carefully with a bright flash light, do you see any staining along the top of the cabinets where the wall meets the ceiling?

Do you see any staining or any discoloration along the inside bottom of the cabinets?

The trim certainly looks like it has water damage. Jayco may be able to sell you an equivalent piece. Or, you could look in the trim sections of Home Depot or Lowes; they may have something that would work - and be cheaper and available sooner.

But better determine first what caused the issue.

Can you tell if the trim is a foam covered with vinyl? I have some in my rig that is easily "dented" just from something banging on it and it was not very solid.

I would bet on the condensation from the fireplace idea - gas fireplaces are notorious for putting off condensation. It wouldn't take many uses to get some damage. I would burn it and see if that piece feels damp before replacing it. Check to see if the valance is damp too when you do it.
