Is this a problem?

While doing my weekly walk around of my trailer I looked up and saw what appeared to be a tear in TPO on the edge of my roof. I climbed up there and while it's not a tear it does appear there is something that is pushing against the membrane. It hasn't come through yet but I'm concerned it may in the future. There is no wood in the roof. It is all composite material. Do I have a problem and what would be the fix should it come through? My trailer is an orphan as Evergreen recently went out of business. Thanks for your help.[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

I have quite a few spots like that on the edge of the roof of my unit. Mine looks like it is from the factory not trimming the aluminum siding low enough. I just put eterna bond tape over the entire edge of the trailer. It's not perfect or pretty, but the other option was to unscrew the side strips and trim it up.
