2014 Lexington roof question

Weather finally warmed up into the 60s so I went up on the roof to check for any problems in caulk. On this MH the roof fiberglass rolls over the radiused edge of the side walls and is attached to the sidewalls by the "gutter" strip. I notice the fiberglass is not "glued" to the roof Plywood or foam for the last approx. 6" from the side edge. I am able to push down on the fiberglass in this area and the fiberglass hits the plywood after about a 3/8" depression of the skin. This condition exist on both sides for the entire length of the roof. Anyone know if this is normal?

That is the fiberglass coming up from the gutter over lapping the strip. So there is no way to glue that part of roof down. You don't have a problem. I saw this when my roof was being replaced. I don't like the way Forest River designed this. The strip acts as a dam holding some water on the roof.
