Roof decking separation

A few months ago I noticed the roof bowed out above the bedroom area of my 2018 Forest River Cherokee. I finally got around to taking it back to CW for inspection. Here's what the technician had to say:

ROOF IS WEAK AND SEPERATING FROM STUDS, MANUFACTURER LINED UP DECKING WRONG.
REMOVE TRIM, VENTS, AC, SKYLIGHTS AND PEEL BACK THE MEMBERANE. REMOVE DECKING REPLACE AND REINSTALL TO FIT CORRECTLY ON STUDS, LAY MEMBERANE BACK DOWN GLUED AND RESECURE TRIM, VENTS, SKYLIGHT, AC, ETC. WATER TEST SURFACE AND RE CAULK/

CW submitted a warranty claim to FR and it was denied (over 1 year mark). Anyone else run into this? I'm not prepared to shell out thousands of dollars out of pocket to correct a manufacturer defect.

Did you contact Cherokee directly?
Do you have pictures of the area showing what's happening that you could send to Cherokee?
