Question Roof rubber cover blew off

I've had my Elevation for one year and 10 days and after arriving home from a 279 mile trip, I found that the roof rubber had peeled back about 10 feet from the front...back over the bedroom vent cover. It tore badly and a large chunk is littering the countryside somewhere. Has anyone had this happen and what hope is there for me to get CR to repair this? Thanks, Triple

Have not had it happen but have read of similiar incidents on CR Elevation and also Rushmore. Get right on this contact CR directly provide pictures. If you trust your dealer get them involved. Phone directly they don't respond well to email.
Your are in that warranty 1 year situation just push they have been improving their customer service of late.
Sorry for your trouble. Best of luck keep us posted

I am pretty sure that your rubber roof has more than a one year warranty. It used to be twelve years, but I am not sure what it is now. I also agree with SOCO you want to call their customer service, no e-mail.... Good Luck..

I for one would certainly call CR and let them know the situation. I'll bet they will tell you the 12 year roof warranty is on the rubber membrane, and not the shoddy workmanship when they forgot to glue it down properly (well they probably won't say it that way)! Irregardless, I would hope they would come thru for you as they obviously installed it incorrectly. Good luck!

Yes, get in touch with them. Like stated this has been known to happen. I have even heard of this happening to the mighty Redwood.

I have had this EXACT thing happen to my 2013 Elevation 3912 this summer. CR authorized an entirely new roof rubber membrane from front to back. When the dealer peeled back the rest of the roof, there was only about 50% of the required sealant used from the manufacturer.

The only silver lining I see is that now I (and you will too) have a BRAND NEW roof, sealed 100% correctly (assuming your dealer is a good dealer and care about the work).

And yes...it really sucks.

Wink Roof rubber cover blew off

Well folks, I'm new to these forums and can only say I am overwhelmed by the positive outpouring of kind guidance from so many of you. Thank you so much. I had trouble with this trailer the very first day after picking it up at the dealer. My dealer has been the BEST DEALER I've ever dealt with. This is my 4th trailer and I have had some real loser dealers in the past. But this dealer has stood by me and even refunded money for my troubles! Unbelievable. I found them on the internet, Chase RV, Pierre, SD. And yes, I drove all the way from TX to SD to buy from them. Being the weekend, I haven't called them yet but know they will support me. After all y'all's encouragement I'm sure now that CR will also help me. Even though I've had more trouble with this trailer than any one owner could stand, I do have to say I love this trailer. It's 2,000# lighter than my Rubicon toy hauler that was a total piece of junk. Anyway, my motivation to post tonight was to thank you all for such kind and positive support. Very helpful! Hope I can help y'all in the near future!
Triple

Since you are on your 4th trailer, I'm sure you have a lot of knowledge to offer also.
Welcome to the forum and good luck with your repair.
