Was up on mine a few months ago and noticed some smaller ones. If no hole no worry. I cleaned it and sealed it the next day. Let us know what you find out.

I have similar bubbles on the roof of my 8528rkws. Called the dealer and emailed a photo and they told me not to worry and it was normal as long as there were no holes. I emailed Forest River warranty dept. with the same photo and never heard back.

I am subscribing to this thread to see if you get a different answer than I did.

I was up on my roof yesterday and saw footprints left imbedded in the roof from the last time I was up there. Looked like bubbles at first glance but then like footprints along the usual path that I walk on the roof. in my non professional opinion, there is nothing to be concerned about

Dicor Products FAQ



My roof has air bubbles. Is this normal?
Typically, if air bubbles occur they occur during or very soon after the roof has been applied. A couple of reasons for the air bubbles would be that they were not broomed out during application, and we ask the installer not to stretch the material during installation to allow for expansion and contraction of the membrane. Air bubbles will occur with weather conditions and humidity. Air bubbles can also occur at the seams of the roof decking due to flexing and twisting that occurs during transit. Sometimes they occur if there is a significant difference in the temperature between the inside and outside of the unit.

Will the air bubble effect the performance of my roof?
No. The air bubbles will not blow up and pop. They will come and go with the weather conditions, humidity, etc. Please do not puncture the air bubbles. Air bubbles mean there is room for expansion and contraction, lessening the chance of stress cracks later.
