is the leak from above or below? - pics

I have bubbling where the exterior slide out fiberglass wall meets what I think is a wide strip of painted aluminum along the bottom. the bubbling seem like delamination but Im wondering if the water is getting in from the that joint and going up or from the windows above or even all the way from the roof coming down? it seems like a long way for water to travel without delaminating until the very bottom. Also as you see in the pics there are some small areas where the wrap has bubbled very close to where the fiberglass did, I just popped these with a pin and they stuck back down well, there was no water in them. the larger delamination bumps are hard to see in these pics but they are basically right where those obvious bubbles are making me think they are related and from at leak at that joint rather than from above but im new at this it would seem odd for water to go up, what do you think?

Those look like air bubbles under the vinyl graphics. What makes you think there is water under them? You said you popped smaller ones with a pin. I would do the same to those. If water comes out then you have a problem and should have the dealer look at it. The longer they are there the more the vinyl will stretch and will take more work to smooth them out.
