Ripples on top of Slide

Are ripples common on top of slide (bedroom) on a 2019 25.5 REOK. Haven't bought the unit yet but wondered if the ripples were due to water damage as my last bedroom slide had no ripples. Thanks,

Can you post a few pictures?

My slide roof looks like Eternabond. It looks as if it was stretched when it was installed, and has pulled up in the center. I would call it wavy in places. I have never been concerned as all the important places are sealed. If it is true ripples with fold overs, were the wiper seals could not get a good seal, then I would be concerned.

That would bother me on a new unit!

Have seen many like this and our 2018 MLOK has ripples in the kitchen slide. It is not from water damage and you may find the ripples are reduced depending on weather temperature. My contacts (I know two at different dealers) have told me this is quite common however I must admit I would prefer to see the membrane fully adhered to the roof structure.

What would bother me more is that split loam running across the roof.
What’s with that?

Good question Klassic ... I missed that as I was looking only at the ripples! No idea why they would add that to the roof as it is only one more entry point for water that could lead to costly repairs. Not the best idea either IMO.

I think maybe it was Rock (from this forum) who had ripples and made them fix it.
Someone from here had them and got it fixed.

It is a cable from the roof mounted satellite dish. I do agree that it could be another entry point(s) for water.
