Bubble in rubber roof

A couple of weeks ago I washed the roof ofmy SV233T. While doing so I noticed a bubble about the size of a pie pan on the roof over the bathroom area. I was careful in washing the roof using a soft car wash brush and I put my hands on it to try and smooth it out. It sort of smoothed out but didn't disappear. I didn't think much about it until today. I called the dealer and was told that this was normal but to pay attention for leaks. Our rig is less than 1 1/2 years old. Do I have a concern here ?

I would keep an eye on it but yeah, bubbles happen. When they lay the roof down they spread the glue and sometimes it isn't as thick in some areas.

My old 5'er had large sections that came unglued but I NEVER had a leak or an issue with it other than being annoyed with it.

Just keep an eye on it and be extra careful walking up there.
