Thanks BigJohnD,

I'm hoping for a quick and easy fix... Whatever it is... Wood, luan, metal, Aluminum etc, it does appears to be stressing the rubber roof even more now... Need to get Fixed it penetrates roof layer... I'm hoping to get the RV in for repairs when we return from our current trip on April 20th...

Hoping for a clear day on Wednesday to take some progress pics I.e more stress on the rubber

Some put a strip of tape of their choice over the staples, but who knows when they built it. Pretty common to see what AZ posted though. Doesn't make it right. Definitely will be a problem down the road, or could be. On mine, it wasn't the staples, but the end of some of the radius molding sticking up. Wasn't secured so well.

Here is what this edge looked like after my roof luan was replaced prior to the RV Flex Armor installation.

I am glad I came across this post. My trailer has been at the dealer since Nov 6. We went there yesterday to see why it is taking so long, thats another story. When we took it there one of the items the dealer was supposed to have done was aroof inspection. I decided to look at the roof myself and I have the same problem. I also noticed what looks like a couple of "screws" that have backed out and are really stressing the roof material. All this after the dealer had completed the roof inspection and said it was good. We pointed this out to the service tech that was working and he said he will talk to our service rep tomorrow sice he didn't know anythig about what was going on. I guess the bottom line is look at it yourself and then point it out to the dealer. Ours is a 2015 fbts.

Redoing the aluminum mooing on our last rig took way less than a day. We've had screws come up on others in the last too. On the screws, I just made a small slit, removed the screw, coated with construction adhesive, reinstalled, put a small square of eternabond over it and coated with the proguard coating. Wasn't worth pulling the whole roof for 2-3 screws, nor was it worth the fuel money to tow it to a dealer to do the same thing.

I took pictures of my roof and sent them to Jayco. They said this was a aproblem that needs to be repaired. My dealer said that almost all trailers have this issue and it is not a big deal and does not need to be repaired. We brought our trailer home and went for a weekend outing. There happened to be another Jayco dealer nearby. I went there, showed him the pictures and got the same response that it is no big deal and don't worry about it. No repairs needed. Now I am not sure what to do.

That does not look good at all. Even AZs unit looked good when he first got it. Mine also looked fine in Nov. I just have some small spots and now what I think is a screw backing out. I am real interested to see what is under the TPO that is lifting like that and why. I looked over my roof real good at my PDI and the only stuff I found was small wrinkles around the vents and a spot by the ladder that needed sealant. Now that it is hotter here in Fl the small lifting spots I have seem to have flattened out some.

No more than what edatlanta posted. Plywood is laid, radius molding goes on over where the roof / sidewall meet and is secured with staples. You see pieces of the molding edge and some staples. A combination of movement, expansion / contraction, and just plain not secured very well causes it. Looks like they never taped the joint either where the molding is stapled. The faster they build them as demand continues to increase, the more shoddy crap you're gonna see.

It obviously isn't a solution to rubber roof issues for everyone due to cost, etc. But rubber roofs will never ever be owned by me again, except for the time it takes to get it from the dealer to a RV Flex Armor installer.

I give absolutely no thought to my roof now except to wash it off occasionally. and caulk? What is that used for? Certainly not on my roof anywhere.

To me any rubber roof is a disaster waiting to happen. Not IF but WHEN.
