. I slowed to 55MPH which reduced the size of the ballooned roof and pulled into the nearest exit. I was able to get up on the roof and was lucky to find no rips in the roof, just wrinkles. Was able to flatten the roof as much as possible noticing it was still tacky underneath the membrane. see attached picture. I drove slow and stopped a few times to flatten the roof an inspect for tears. was able to return home and make an appointment with my dealer to have it looked at and repaired.
This should be covered under the 3 year keystone warranty. How many others had this happen in the past couple of years?
I've seen countless RVs on the highway with the roof ballooned up about a foot so it's not uncommon.
Not sure where/how you came up with a 3 year warranty, unless you have some sort of extended coverage, won't be through Keystone, so good luck with that.
The roof membrane is warrantied for 12 years against defects, was the case in the past, but does not cover poor installation which is the issue you have.
If a replacement is recommended go with RV Armor or similar rather than OEM material, it's a spray/rolled on coating that's warrantied forever to anyone owning the RV, now or in the future, NO more roof issues EVER.
