Does this look like the start of a tear?

Hey guys!

I just picked up this trailer and after some cleaning I noticed what looks to be a small tear forming. What do you guys think?

I would take a couple of really good pics and send them to Jayco along with vin. number. That way it is documented just in case.

Did that top picture come from being on roof? Can you shine a light upward from below to see if it is a problem? Underneath side of track have a smooth surface where the awning comes in contact?

Any separation like that is reason for concern. Still under warranty I assume?

This is from the rear of the trailer on the left side next to the ladder.

When in doubt, clean the area very well, slap a piece of Eternabond tape over the area, and never look back.

That tape works pretty well? I’ve watched a couple YouTube videos and it looks pretty good. I’ve also contemplated coating the roof, but not sure it’s quite necessary yet.
