The staining could be from many sources. The one that seems most likely is the sheathing having been left out in the weather during construction. I've seen plenty of mold and what you have doesn't...

OP,

OP,
It doesn't appear to be mold. It may be some sort of stain from something on the wall such as insufficiently removed wallpaper paste that has finally bled through.

OP,
If you can't locate the product recommended by CMV, you might try grout sealer from TileLab. I got it at HD and it seems to work fine.

OP,
The nuts that hold the seat on are accessed from underneath, directly below the hinges. You may need a socket wrench with deep well sockets to get at them.

My daughter has the same thing in her condo. I believe the tub and surround may be fiberglass. There are epoxy paints on the market for this application. Try a real paint store. If you go that route,...

OP,
Is there any other appliance or device on the same circuit that is high demand and is cycling on at the same time the sprayer is operating? Could the breaker just be weak? Have you tried it on a...

OP,
In your case I'd skip the sanding, wipe down with mineral spirits, apply Wil-Bond following package directions, then apply a coat of quick drying varnish. I've done this on doors where a...

OP,
Use a flat paint that is 100% acrylic for best adhesion on a gloss or semi-gloss surface. My preference would be Ben Moore Regal Select Flat for your project.
