Question Wrinkles in rubber roofing material

Hello all, my first post here. I have a 2010 8265WS fifth wheel that has developed some "wrinkles" in the roof membrane behind the front cap. The seals all around the roof edge and vents look good. Is this a cosmetic problem or something more serious? I would appreciate any input on this issue. Thanks in advance.

Wrinkles in roof covering

I have the same thing at the rear in the middle near the hold down strip. With pictures to Forest River, was told not to worry, not defective.

Thanks. I have in to a shop for some other work and they are quoting me almost a thousand dollars to get the wrinkles out.

i take it you didnt purchase the 2nd year warranty or the 2nd owner since they are giving you a quote to get the wrinkle out - .

If it isnt leaking and there are no gaps in any of the edges - I would say it is most likely cosmetic

Wrinkles in rubber roof material

Yup, no 2nd yr. warranty extension. Bought another extended warrenty that doesn't cover the roof. Looking back at prior work orders, the wrinkles were there a year and a half ago and was told that they were not a problem, but they have grown bigger now.
