Roof questions cleaning and bubbles

We picked up a new 2016 wildcat 29rlx over labor day weekend and this is the first chance I have had to clean off the roof. I used a mild dawn and warm water mixture suggested from other posts and a soft auto wash brush. I also was unable to get some spots clean and could not get the stains from the AC water or along the edges of the slide outs. Does anyone have any suggestions to get these tougher captains off?

Also, I noticed some bubbling in the roof membrane. In a couple of areas there are small particles under the membrane like little pebbles or construction debris under the membrane and 1 larger area. There are also 2 lines of continuous separation that go from one side to the other at the front 1/4 and back 1/4 of the roof.

Are these issues normal? When we did the PDI, I did not get a chance to get on the roof, but the dealer said there were only a couple of spots that needed new caulk because of bubbling in the caulk, and I can see they did this.

There is also a lot of bubbling of the membrane along the edge, so much that it forms almost a gutter catching the water from falling into the real gutter.
