loose roof on slide and moldy outside shower

The roof material on our slide is loose and part of the bubble circled in the pic is outside when the slide is extended. No leaks, but I afraid the seals will eventually tear the material. Has anyone else seen this on their slide? Should I insist that the dealer repair the loose material or is this typical.https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/at...1&d=1410402032https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/at...1&d=1410402032
Also how can we keep the outside shower from getting moldy. I clean it with bleach but the mold keeps coming back.

No, your slide roofing material issue isn't even close to being normal...., definitely a warranty issue for the dealer to handle. I've never seen a slide roof do that before.

I have never had a mold issue with my outside shower and we use it often, don't know of a long term remedy.

I agree that your slide roofing material is not correct and should be repaired.

What part of the outside shower is getting moldy? Mine is all plastic which normally does not encourage mold growth. Could there be either a water supply leak from the shower plumbing, or maybe a rain water leak into the shower cubbyhole?

+1 That definitely ain't right. Even the Eternabond is peeling up on the outside edge and there are bubbles there too. That's about the sloppiest slide roof job I've ever seen.
