You need to make sure you document your discussion with Jayco and their response. So a month before your warranty expires the repairs will be cover.
You do need to make sure that there are no holes, or unseal bolts on the roof. That won't be cover under warranty if you wait.

Already documented .i didn't know if it gets worse over time .some people say that the rubber roof floats down road when traveling and you don't know it.i can't see it in truck when moving and most people wouldn't say anything .

New trailers are not supposed to have ripples in the roof it should be fixed if you wait till after the warrenty is up then they will ask why you waited till now and would want you to pay for it. They even might try to say your discussion with Jayco never happened I use to work at a dealership and seen it happened more than once.

New or used, the roof should not have ripples. Don't wait to have this repaired, as it could lead to additional issues.

I guess I come at it from a different tack. I've owned 3 Jaycos and, unless something has drastically changed, the Jayco customer service folks are as good as their word. If the ripples are only cosmetic, the membrane is intact and there are no leaks at any seams or A/Cs, vent pipes, skylights and vents, etc., I might wait until later in the 2+3 warranty period to have the membrane replaced. Why? Because I'd be leaving the warranty period with a brand new roof that would last 2 years longer than it would if I had it replaced now.

Just another way of thinking about it.....
