1998 Tradewinds roof

Does anyone here have any experience on opening up the rubber membrane. to expose what's underneath. would like the proper way to release the rubber roof at the back from the back air unit to the back end. Have no idea if the rubber can be lifted and put back in place after removal for possible repairs. Before I would do this I would like to know what is under so as to do moisture checks before I do anything. Planning on taking an extended trip and not wanting any surprises when on the road. Thanks for now and will hopefully get some replies. Could see where some caulking had let go and know some water would have found its way under the rubber.

No real experience with this particular issue, however i do know that Epdm rubber is easily repairable i had two large patches on my old 5th wheel. ..they were after market patches that were glued down..with dicor sealant around the edges. Personally i would have used eternabond on the edges. I would assume you could re-glue to a solid clean surface.
