Roofing question

Hey folks, I have had my 2012 365 SAQ for almost a year, and things seem to be going okay. I do have a question, I noticed this morning that on the edge of the roof where it wraps around the top side of the camper, on the door side that there are little pimple like place under neath the rubber part of the roof. Just like a screw that might be coming through the paint of a new piece of sheet rock. Has anyone seen this before and if so, is this an issue that I need to be concerned about? Thanks for your thoughts and input.

sorry, not able to do that at this time. Litterally, it is like "pimples" pin head size is the biggest. Honestly they may have been there the whole time but I have just know noticed them. It is only on one side and I was hoping that this is not a sign that the roof is coming unglued. The top is as smooth as a board, and there are no other signs of this anywhere else. I checked the seals where the rubber wraps around the side at the top and everything looks good where the rubber meets the fiberglass.

I would send (email) these pictures to your Dealer's service department and ask them or have them send them to FR for there thoughts.
To me it looks like the glue is coming lose or was never there?

Looks like some are just trapped air bubbles from the membrane not being rolled out properly. The "heads" look like maybe dirt/grit that was picked up by a roller or brush and got trapped underneath? I would think the small air bubbles are not a big deal, but I would definitely be concerned about the "heads" showing through. Who knows what those heads could really be though. I would check every square inch of the roof.

Seems like a trip to the dealer is in order....

Nothing to worry about, normal for a rubber roof. Look on top, and you will many more bubbles. Just the nature of a rubber roof. There is no glue on the sides, only on top. Pic looks like these are just air bubbles, and will change with temp. You can email the pics to your dealer, or Forrest River for a better opinion.
