Rubber Roof Bubbles

The Rubber Roof on our 2003 Sunnybrook T/T is in absolutely perfect shape. Every year since purchased, the roof has been cleaned annually with 303 Protectant Applied after each and every cleaning. To look at the roof, you would think it is almost new. When the coach was not in use, has been parked under an awning, either here or at our place in Talking Rock Creek RV Resort. There are not soft spots in the roof as we have inspected twice annually and it has not been out from under its current awning cover now for three years. What I want to know, what can I do about few bubbles that have popped up where the adhesive has turned loose. Is there anyway to inject some adhesive into the bubble and then press it down until it sets up?

Yes, but if it doesn't leak, leave it alone. I used to do commercial rubber membrane roofs and found it's best to wait until it's bad. It's probably just the wood outgassing.
Can you inspect the underside for water stains? Leaks can travel a surprising distance under a membrane.

Roof Rubber

As we have inspected it every year when cleaning and applying the 303, we have never found any soft spots and there are no interior stains in the ceiling and having it stored under cover when not in use for most of its life, has really prolonged its normal life compared to what it would normally look like if having been on the road these years.
Other than the bubbles, the roof looks like new: we have just started using a conditioner that is produced by the Rubber Roof Manufacturer, think it might be an improvement over the 303 stuff, and less expensive.]
