roof bubbles

I know this is a question that probably has been addressed but I did a search for the last year and did not find anything. We moved into our '06 Montana in May and my husband just got on the roof where he found bubbles in the roof. Should we be doing something about this?
It has been in the triple digits here. Would that cause the problem?Charlotte

That will do it. The roof is one piece of material. It will expand in the heat and shrink in the cold.
A few small bubbles here and there are no big thing. Now large bubbles would be a different story.
I have a little ridge of bubbles at all the plywood joints, & the odd small bubble here & there.
We have a 2 story house so I can always look down on the roof of the trailer. As long as it doesn't
change much I'm ok with it. I just keep an eye on it. If in doubt take it to your dealer or one that is close and let them have a look at it.

I agree with that. Little bubbles are not unusual. Just watch to make sure they're not growing. That would make them a big deal. Large bubbles should be addressed.

If you're fixing it yourself you can get the proper cement (ask your dealer), and use a syringe for glue to squirt the glue under the rubber. After it sets, a spot of sealer on the small hole for the needle would be a good thing.

As for the temperatures, I have no idea. We've been in triple digits more than I'd like but didn't get any bubbles from it.

See another Montana or Mountaineer on the road? Flash lights twice, it might be one of us!
