371mbrb bubble on rubber roof problems already

So as I already brought my camper home 4 hour drive to get my grey tank fixed since the valve would not move at all I figures I'd was it before I take it back to the storage unit. As I get up on the roof to check on things and clean the top part of the front cap I find a decent size bubble/wrinkle. Emailed dealer/ coachmen immediately and sent them an image of it the camper not even 5months old and been stored inside since day one. Anyone else have this problem?

Yes. Taking mine to the dealer on July 6 for possible warranty repair. Bought mine April 25. Looked in my side mirror while towing and saw it ballooning up.

Holy smokes!

The picture makes it look like they didn't lay it down flat and it has a slight wrinkle... is it deceiving? Man I hope I don't run into this... Water scares me to death with these things... so glad I don't have to store it outdoors!

Yeah I would never spend all this money and leave it outside bright it home for two weeks scrubbed it good yesterday and it goes back inside after are week vacation. And my job we deal with alot of corporate lease return cars and have to take pics of danger dents ect so this picture is pretty accurate to what its like. Just aggravated about it my old camper never had a problem and I got rid of it for this headache

I have several wrinkles and knowing the tech personally who worked on mine said they are completely normal and nothing to fix on them. Mine I believe were on the top of my slides though, not the roof. I'll take a few pics for you tomorrow of mine and post them.

They said wrinkles aren't a big deal.. it is if you had cracks or holes in your sealant. With a wrinkle, the tops are still sealed up.

I washed the roof on the 360IBL today... no wrinkles per say, but there were some areas where the roof was not fully adhered to the substrate... it didn't really scare me

Little bubbles/wrinkles generally are not a problem and are usually considered a cosmetic problem by FR. "Ballooning" on the other hand means there is air getting under it and is a problem.
