Bubbles in rubber roof coating
 
1999 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager, 34', rubber roof. About 2 months ago we tackled recoating our roof. Dicor roof cleaner and Dicor rubber roof sealant. Was apprehensive as the material was expensive and didn't want to make a major mistake. At the end of the day, all seemed to go well, looked great, no before and after pictures, was happy with how it all worked. Went up on the roof yesterday and noticed there are some bubbles in the roof coating. Biggest are about the size of a nickel, about 25 or so that I saw.

Any experienced suggestions? Are these bubbles a problem? Thanks in advance.

Small bubbles (up to 2") are not a problem according to Dicor: https://dicorproducts.com/faq/ scroll down to "my roof has air bubbles"
The main thing is - do not puncture them.

Air bubbles in Dicor rubber roofing
 
Morning Dan, thanks for the reply. The bubbles we have are like little blisters, like having a sunburn and a water blister develops. It says not to pop them, however, over the course of time, I wonder what happens if someone would step on one and break it, would that be a concern for a leak. Keep in mind I'm brand new to our RV, kinda like a new parent, have concerns about many unknowns, then after the second child, just another day. Thanks for the reply. Also, thank you for your service. Oly Olson

I would monitor the roof condition closely, and carry a roll of Eternabond tape(follow directions exactly) JIC one of the "blisters' does break/pop.
