Roof Bubbles, Anyone?

Our roof is starting to show numerous bubbles. It does not appear to be leaking, but our unit is not even a year old yet? Does anyone else have this or have seen it? We are camping in Myrtle Beach and have a call in to our dealer, but ..... Ours is a 2014 RL.

I don't know of any roof bubbles yet, but I often hear a mysterious "tearing" sound on warm days on the roof... not sure what it is, but it sure doesn't sound good. Some kind of expansion going on or something. We better go and take a good look.

I was on my roof today as a matter of fact, and noticed air pockets under the rubber membrane mostly near the joints of the plywood under the rubber. It is going in for its one year warranty inspection Monday. Will have them check it then. Will let you know what they say.

We had our roof replaced this summer and it has bubbles in it. Service said it was normal due to expansion and contraction

I think it is normal to see them at the seams. Our last one had them, but this one does not appear to, yet...

I had some on the dining room slide. Lazy days re-cemented it and have not had problems since. Knock on wood! Warranty covered this item.

We noticed bubbles on our roof when the unit was two months old.
No leaks, so we took it buy our dealer.
They said they were normal so I had them note that on the service ticket so there is a record of the issue having been reported.
We have a 2014 36RL.

Warranty inspector will not get on roof, I was told not PART of the Redwood inspection. They do not check brakes, bearings, tires, window sills, any of the internals, plumbing, door seals, awnings,... Check to see if you can buy ALPHASEAL from any Redwood dealer, I've had no luck. If REDWOOD states, Use ALPHASEAL ONLY, but I can't buy it, can I protect my roof?

Seems like the roof is the one critical part of the inspection.
