Decals have bubbles

We have a "new" 2012 Cruise Lite.
When washing the trailer the other day, I noticed several of the decals have bubbles in them.
Should I do something while under warranty or am I worried about nothing?

Thanks

Is the decal dry and/or kind of flakey?

No.
I can push on the air bubble and "move" it along, just not the end. To long a decal. LOL
It looks to me like they just were not applied correctly at the factory.
Guess my question is, will they last like this for 20 years, or should I insist they replace them and not just cut a slit in the bubble and apply some glue to "fix" it?

Your call, if the dealer will replace it under warranty then do that as the best long term option.

You could fix it yourself if you want.

Not much of a "body" person. I know I could work on them and do it. But kind of figure after what we paid for the trailer. It SHOULD be perfect. That is why we bought new.
Was wondering though if these bubbles will cause a problem or stay that way for years and years. If they will stay that way, no need to really do anything. If not, then will push to have them replaced.
Thanks for the response.

prick the bubble close to the edge with a needle or straight pin and work the air out the prick.

I would get it replaced. If you head up in elevation they will get bigger and bigger and end up looking like the pox!
