Bubbles on roof

Cleaning off my roof today. Noticed several areas where the rubber roof has a bubble--like the adhesive underneath has come free. None were bigger than a silver dollar but there were about a half dozen of them. Also noted some bubbles along the joints of the roof decking. Something to be concerned about?

I have about 4 months left on first year warranty so I'd like to get it looked at if it's a problem before warranty is up.

I get ton of larger 'bubbles' on my roof too. It depends on outside weather conditions. I told the dealer about it and he said NOT to puncture or poke them. Basically let them be. It hasn't caused any harm in the three years I've owned The Beast. I bought it used without factory warranty or else I prolly woulda been more vocal and persistent in finding the reason for the bubbles. So far tho' no harm, no foul. There are several threads on bubbled EPDM roofs if you do a search.

Ours is the same. Mainly at the seams of the roof decking, but there are others. Cedar Creek says this is "normal". Not to me it isn't as we've had several that did not get any bubbles or wrinkles. Either way, it doesn't affect the function of the roof. It just doesn't look great. Ours too changes with the weather conditions. Some days it looks great, other days you see the wrinkles / bubbles.

Tom - had a little different problem with our roof. Coachman was very hesitant to do anything about it.

screw poking up...how quickly should I have this addressed?
