Slide out on Jayco 199

Does anyone have pics of the 199 slide out in the extended position?
My roof on the slide out looks a little funky to me and Jayco says this is normal.
Upon cleaning the slide out roof I noticed the epdm roof makes a "Ramp" on each inside corner(corners closest to the camper body). Kinda like its been streatched or pulled up to the corner.
I would really like to see someones pics if possable. I have a year left on warrenty so Im trying to find any possible future problems.
Thanks for any help or advise.

My '05' Eagle slide has something similar and hasn't been an issue, if anything it may help to shed water away from the corners when the slide is extended do to the over-lapping of the horizontal and vertical rubber seals in the same area. In my case there is some support structure under the corner "ramps".

I would think the ramps are to push water forward to the outside edge... My Eagle has them too...
