Roof separating in high wind on windjammer

We have a 2016 model 3025 windjammer which we’ve pulled Maybe 10k miles in the last two years. Last summer while going through western Kansas a high wind came up and my wife noticed a bubble in the front roof of the TT. I WAS ABLE I was able to get some seam tape over the front of the roof line which seemed to have stopped the seperation. A close exam did not find any tears or holes in the roofing material. The wind was blowing from 25 to 50 mph as a headwind and I was driving about 60 mph. Has anyone else had a similar problem. Good Sam insurance has been dragging their feet on my claim telling my repair person the’ve never heard of such a problem.

Was it just Ballooning or was there a Roofing seam pulled that was allowing forced air to lift the roofing material? Youroo! !

It was ballooning and we couldn’t find where the air was getting under the roof no holes Rips or seem separations could be found even by the dealer.

I have a 5th wheel with the same problem, over the last 2 years the whole front of the material is loose and wrinkled. It seems as though wind is getting under the cap thru the hitch opening. I did not want to tie up my RV for months waiting for warranty work.. I am very unhappy with the Alpha roof, I have replaced it with a ( FLEXARMOR ROOF) no seams no caulking no leaks..
