I would just poke a small hole in the center of the bubble and work the air out and seal it with an Eternabond patch.

You guys would really do that to a 3 month old unit ???
I guess if that is what you want to do,,, I think you can buy a hypo needle that would inject glue ???

I would certainly expect the dealer and FR repair the bubble. But it doesn't require replacement of the entire roof as some have said. If the dealer/FR doesn't step up, then yes, I would repair it as previously stated. The hypo is a good idea.

they could repair one for me if, if, if, they would guaranty that in "that spot would never ever leak" other wise they would have to replace the whole thing for me to accept it, just sayin, they seem to get away with a lot, the roof should not be one of them

Whatever the OP does, I surely hope he doesn't "poke a hole" or "cut a slit" in a his roof. That is simple the worse kind of advice. Don't put a hole in something that shouldn't have one. The bubble does not hurt anything, and will most likely go away. It's not broke, don't "fix" it.

, yeah really. Can't believe someone would even THINK about cutting into their roof membrane. That would definitely void the warranty, probably affect insurance coverage also.

If you bought a new house and discovered a leak, let's say three months later, would you expect the builder to replace the entire roof?

Hi
I have been reading your last few posts on bubbles.
I assume this is a delamination issue.
I just sold my Chalet trailer just for that reason and I was wondering if this is an issue with the FR Aframe trailers too.
I am considering buying one.

Different types of roof. The OP has a "rubber" roof that is glued to the substrate. They get small bubbles in them occasionally. Not the same thing as a fiberglass delamination.

I actually would poke a needle size hole (use needle used to vaccinate horses) to draw out air and inject an appropriate glue into the area that has come loose. The hole would be about the size of a pen tip and afterwords, use some eternabond tape to seal it up and also seal that Dicor job on the vent..it is begging for eternabond.

Remarks to return it to factory or dealership are a little extreme. If you are not comfortable on putting a tiny hole in it to fix it, you can remove dicor next to the vent, remove vent, and inject glue into that area from the side and press out air towards vent so it seats flat.
