Dear mike,
just take a sharp knife cut out the bubbles and feather the circumference of the cutouts with sandpater and re-apply the rubberized sealer overlapping the holes.if you leave the bubbles they will eventually crack and break and moisture/water will get under the rubber and the roof and create a need to re-do the whole roof.this is a quick repair and should be able to be done in your garage or driveway.just make sure the area you repair is dry during the whole process.i hope this will help you. ted h.

How old is your coach? If its still under warranty I would have the dealer take a look at it and make the repairs.

If its out of warranty, I think that I would let it alone and do nothing to it unless it starts to get alot bigger. Then I might take steps to repair them.

Presently my unit has a number of sections where the roof appears to have not been properly sealed down. So far they haven't caused me any problems so I haven't done anything with them.

If they increase in size then I will take steps to properly repair them.

I have owned other units that have had the same problem, and they didn't cause any problems or get bigger.

Right now I don't think that I would worry too much about them.

I would leave it alone. This is very common. Alot of times, the heat during the summer will take care of the bubbles. In fact, some brands of rv's dont even bother gluing the rubber on. I dont like the idea, but, anyways. Also, its never a good idea, to cut your rubber roof for any reason. Thats the reason they call it a "seamless rubber roof". Also, if there is a warranty on your roof, cutting it, will void the warranty. Most rubber roofs, have a 10 year warranty.
