Plywood on roof separation

Hope it is okay to repost here I had only one reply under wildcat post. Has anyone had this happen and if so what did you do about it. I have contacted Jeff at wildcat but no answer back as to what can be done. The first joint about one foot back from cap has seperated a bout an inch to an inch and one half. All of the other joints look to have one side are the other popping up. This is a 2015 wildcat 312 bhx. Rubber roof is not cracked or torn yet. No dicor cracked either.

I'm out of warranty and Jeff at wildcat sent reply that maybe I ought to have someone look at it. A little suspicious looking he said. If I'm right it looks like improper installation, screws staples duct tape or whatever supposed to be holding is not. This trailer has not been abused. Never driven over 60 mph while towing. Don't seem like a 2 year old unit should be doing this. Any ideas on my options appreciated.

I guess I am extra-paranoid....this is exactly why I am as scared as a blind folded cat walking across a room with the floor covered in mouse traps. What can I expect?
