Wood and Mattress Yellowing in 2010 Flying Cloud

I purchased a 2010 Flying Cloud 19' this week and only today noticed some yellowing on the cabinetry, wood surfaces and even the mattress. I attached some photos I took today. I actually think the iPhone makes the yellowing look more significant than it actually is, which is why we did not pay so much attention to it during the inspection process. However, we still would like to understand what is causing it.

In general, it looks like this forum points to either significant age (i.e. trailers from the 70s) or tobacco smoke as causes of yellowing. Obviously age is not a factor. The owners I bought from are trustworthy and say they did not smoke inside. They don't know much about the previous owners, but nothing else indicates heavy smoking (no smell!)

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Thank you!

Do you have Halogen or LED lights? We have seen this in spots and attribute it to the lighting. Wheather Halogen or LED. Weird. Huh. But no so much with the darker wood.

It's the LED lights you have. I installed some LEDS that I got on Amazon just before I put the trailer into inside storage. Didn't notice the yellowing effect that you are seeing on the day I installed them. Made a trip to the storage site a few weeks later to put a few more things into the trailer. Saw exactly what you are seeing, couldn't figure out what the heck it was....We have the light gray cushions on our trailer, they looked like they were stained, took the cushion outside into the daylight and stains were gone.

If you have a halogen bulb to install, try one of those and you will see what I mean.

BTW...congrats on your trailer, welcome to the forums!!

Looks like lighting to me. Bring in some other plug in AC lights and see if it makes a noticeable difference.

I agree, that pattern on the bed indicates lighting. Why not just open all the blinds during the day and retake the photo without any lights on.

If so, you should be able to get/make a diffuser to insert and soften the entire pattern out so it doesn't show.

All lights have various "temperatures". When I replaced my interior bulbs with LEDs on my old AS I got a yellowish/greenish tint. The temp I believe must have been around 2000k or less. My current AS (2014) came with LEDs as original equipment. They are much more like mid day light - around 6000k - almost a whitish/blueish tint - plus they work on a dimmer.
