Nails (staples?) popping up

My TT is about 3 months old. While on the roof yesterday I noticed that some of the screws or staples are starting to pop up. The EPDM roof is still intact so I'm not worried about leaks (yet!).

My plan is to take the trailer back to dealer at about the six month mark for warranty repair of this. Then again at 12 months if necessary.

Does that sound right? Is there anything else I should do? I plan to check the roof monthly as part of routine maintenance.

Also, what will the dealer do? Somehow pound the screws back in without damaging the EPDM roofing material?

I'd bring it back sooner rather than later before they pop through

I believe you should take it back to dealer real soon. We have a 5th wheel and our roof pealed off going down interstate at 60-65 mph. Worries me to think about an accident a 15 x 8 ft of roof could have caused. FR has an issue with this right now. I know of another and been advised of 2 more in Florida.
