Nails on roof

Our 2016 Eagle TT has several nails/staples coming up under the rubber membrane of roof. It started out with a couple and we keep finding more it seems like. I would say there are 15-20 dimples under roof.
Jayco recommended the service center to tap them back down w/ rubber mallet. Service center tried and was able to get some to go back down but not others. They were afraid if they hit too hard it would puncture roof.
Because the nails/staples are all over and not in just one area the whole rubber roof would need to be replaced and the estimate was $3-4k.
Jayco hasn't approved this as the roof isn't leaking but I would think long term we will end up w/ holes in roof.
Anyone else having similar issue on new camper?
What are your thoughts and would you be hesitant about replacing roof?
fyi: Jayco hasn't decline the repair but also hasn't approved it. I'm just trying to educate myself before moving forward.

I have the same issue on my 2016 23RB. Probably half a dozen staples pushing up from below the membrane. I've been hesitant to try to tap them back down and very hesitant to take it in for service. I don't want them messing things up worse but I'm sure these staples will eventually wear holes through the membrane given enough to time. I'm keeping an eye on this thread to see what happens

I keep seeing where people are talking about nails/staples coming up under the roof membrane. While looking at all the information about the building of these trailers, they are stating that Jayco doesn't use staples like the competition is their claim to fame. They state that they use screws. Any ideas?

"We screw down 3/8" roof decking at each seam,"

The rest is stapled.

Kind of defeats the rest of the statement?
"reduces the chance of fasteners coming loose and puncturing the rubber roof material"

Good Luck.

I fail to see where Jayco stated some screws and the rest is stapled. I do see where it was pointed out that the competitors use staple, very misleading.
