Rubber roof repair-is this OK?

Posting for a neighbor who has owned many RV's and is very good about maintenance. He recently bought a used camper. The previous owner had a new fridge installed in this really well kept unit. The re and re appears to have been done by enlarging the hole through the roof where the fridge roof vent is. Whoever did the job used 3 or 4 pieces of rubber roof to seal the hole rather than one solid piece. The pieces of roofing are overlapping and well sealed with Dicor and appear to be in good condition, but my neighbor is a bit concerned. My take is that it is a bit unorthodox, but I would treat it like any other joint on the roof-keep an eye on it and reseal with Dicor whenever cracks appear. What do you think?

If it is a job well done, it shouldn't be a problem. Perhaps you can share a pic where the joint is?

Yeap, just another roof seam that requires the usual inspection and care.

Cutting a big hole in the roof to replace a fridge is about the hardest method possible and I doubt if anybody would do that unless there was no door or window large enough (and that seems unlikely). Maybe it was leaking around the roof vent and was damaged enough to require replacement on that section.
