Roof Joints Loose

I own a Wildcat 5th wheel 282RKX which we purchased new and has overall provided good service. About 6 months ago while performing a roof inspection I noted the deck joints on the roof appeared to be loose, or flexible. The screws at the joints appear to be poking up a little. Has anyone else experience this? Is there a fix?

Thanks!

not seen it, heard of others comments about it here and there. Would not be a good thing if those screws backed out. Not only would damage rubber membrane and leak but the sheathing acts as a shear panel as well, adds rigidity to the whole coach. Only solution is to pull up the roof or cut a slit and fix then cover with Eternabond.

Yep, thanks. Iíll keep an eye on it. Just checking to see if others have seen or heard of this...
