Blisters/bubbles on roof skin

Noticed these blisters/bubbles along the back edge of the roof on my relatively new 2023 Rockwood 2205S. Scheduled appointment with dealership but looking for second opinion. Will these bubbles lead to issues or are they just cosmetic?

I have the same on my 2023 2109s and I pointed it out to the salesman when we took delivery and the salesman had the service manager look at it and said this was normal, it doesn’t look normal to me he said it was for expansion and contraction of the membrane during hot and cold conditions

I call BS on that being normal.

No I agree, we were just in a deluge of a thunder storm while camping this weekend in Indiana and I had no leaks. Please post what your dealers says and if they will repair it because if they repair it I’m taking mine in for the repair

My 2022 2109s will get bubbles/blisters on occasion. Sometimes I see them when washing the roof, other times they have either contracted or I simply didn't notice them. Not saying that is is, but it is as if the membrane is free floating in a way. I've had no leaks in the two years of ownership, and I live in S FL where we typically get 50+ inches of rain in a 6 month period. I did inquire about the blisters with the dealer, and I think I also ran it by a contact I had at Rockwood. I know I was told that this is normal and haven't worried about it since.

Thanks for the feedback.

I just spent 17 days in mostly rain and didn't see any leaks. I'll post what dealer says.
