Roof soft spot.

2014 3010DS.
With the 1 pc fiberglass roof I have a soft spot from the rear of the coach to the bathroom roof vent.
Aprox 6 ft x 18 inches wide. No leaks have been found. When you walk on it it crunches. All seams have been eterna bond sealed.
Not sure if if any other 3010 owners have seen anything like this.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Do you feel the entire area deflect under weight or do you feel it move slightly? Could be the fiberglass roof pulled away from the plywood creating a bubble.

So there is plywood under the fiberglass ??
Thought it was a solid glass roof.
It is an area that feels soft but makes a crunching noise when you step on it.

Could be a small water leak from the vent or other roof attached item such as antenna, air conditioner, etc. over time deteriorating the subroof.

No leaks are visual. . Have checked inside closets and have pulled vent trim rings. No water stains can be seen.
Everything has always been kept up every 6 months.
As I said all has been sealed with di-cor and eternabond.
Maybe just a matter of the adhesive that the fiberglass was glued on with giving up??

Yes, if the bubble is easily depressed it is most likely separated from the plywood. If you have a leak you should see signs inside. You could remove the roof vent and see if there is any issues, if the fiberglass is loose you will see that and and check the plywood to make sure there is no water damage.
