Bubble on My Bedroom Slide Roof

I have a 2014 3582RL. Today I was giving it a wash, I noticed when washing the bedroom slide roof there is a bubble about the size of a golf ball round and sticks up about a 1/2 inch. It is wrinkled but it does not have a hole in it. Not sure what might have caused it. I have had this 5th Wheel since new. Occasionally I put my portable satellite on that slide. Has anybody had this problem? Not sure if I should cut it and put a patch on it or just let it go and keep a eye on this.

If your unit has cable slides, I suspect a leaking gear box. Look up and over the slide from the inside. Check the other slides also. It is apparently a common issue

My units is a lot older than yours and has several small bubbles as you described on the regular roof as well as the slide roofs. I think the EDPM material has just pulled away from the substrate. Probably spot not glued or pulled away overtime from the glue. I just keep an eye on mine and have for several years. Some get bigger but none have created a problem such as a leak. I wouldn't be too concerned unless they rapidly get worse.
