Rock,

I know it was not like that during PDI and acceptance inspection, because I went up on roof and looked at everything. I think I'm going to send the pictures to the dealer and Jayco.. Does anyone of an email address for Jayco?

I would have dealer evaluate it and see what he says. I am going out of country for the next two weeks but when I get back my Rv should be ready for pick up. I will look at my roof before I lv the dealer and also ask if he has seen ur problem before. Like I said our units were pretty much the same week. If that is an alum strip that joins the walls Rv flexing could cause the alum to bend or buclkel some. If that is the case they can use the patching tape and run it full length down each side. That would ensure no splitting an water leakage. But again with that said on a new under warranty unit I would demand they fix it at the source and put on a new roof. After the warranty is up if the rubber roof tears from something under it u will be on your own. Hopefully this is nothing but cover ur butt for the future

AZ... I had a look at my roof. Nice and smooth.
I can see the transition and feel it, it feels like thin wood (luan) and its stapled. Mine are generally stapled 2-2 1/2" apart. Occasionally 3". I can feel the staples.
Yours looks like they are stapled farther apart.
But then again, it's 50 degrees here and low humidity...but still, you shouldn't be doing that.
Looks like if you walked to the edge of your roof you could trip on one and go over.

Great Pic Klassic.. Thank you...

I took a video today, pressing down with my finger and you can hear the glue.. like it's not bonding or letting loose... Don't think I can post videos, but I believe you are dead on with the longer gap between staples ...and now the glue is not holding.... I have also reached out to a local dealer here in AZ...

looks like staples under roof skin but that's weird. When we did a tour of the eagles being built they screwed the roof sheeting to the framework and then ground over the seam areas to knock any splintering from screws off

Hello everyone,
Sorry for delay, was on a 2week business trip....
Reference roof issue, the dealer fwd pics to factory and they immediately replied and will take care of everything! Since it's not a safety issue the dealer called and left it up to us when to bring in the rig for the repairs... Estimate a week to 10 days based on if they can just peel back the corners, re-glue and staple without splintering any of the underlayment they will not have to replace the entire roof, but if any of the underlayment splinters, they will have to replace the entire roof!!! According to dealer explanation, if the underlayment splinters, they cannot re-lay the rubber due to inconsistency in the surface...

I'm very pleased with the quick response and provided details by both the factory and the dealer.

We have a month trip starting this Sunday and then will schedule the repair before our next trip.

That is great news Wonder if this is how Jayco has always done roofs or have they changed something. I really hope yours is an isolated issue. I will be keeping a very close eye on my roof if I ever get mine back from the dealer. It is nice to know that your local dealer is working with you since that is not who u got it from. You put some miles on yours, mine will get a 3k trip this summer. See if all the highway abuse pops my roof up. You should make a separate post on your roof issue and see if anyone else is having issues

Just read the post before your and the Eagle a 2015 model roof was screwed and not stapled. If this is a change I hope it does not happen to all of the 2016 models. U need to post this separate
