my brother in law has what looks like blisters on the roof of his camper. i think the roof covering has seperated from the underlaying roof material. any ideas on how to fix this.

no. it looks like it's some kind of thin vinal covering and whatever was used to glue it in place let go in a few places.i was thinking about getting a hypodermic nedle and puncturing the blisters and injecting some kind of glue or rubber cement.

I found this,. REPAIRING BLISTERING AREAS.
a. Fully Adhered Systems. All blisters or
delaminated roofing must be repaired by cutting
blistered area in an "X" pattern where moisture
and/or contaminates can be removed and
properly cleaned. With material pulled back,
apply ASTEC #2000 Flash Grade Waterproof
Membrane 30 to 40 wet mils in the
delaminating area. Then fasten "X" down.
Once this area has properly dried
(approximately 24 hours), using ASTEC #2000
Flash Grade Waterproof Membrane fully cloth
and embedded over these repair areas using
the 3-step flashing system.
b. Non Adhered Systems (loose laid). Follow
EPDM manufactures recommended
specification procedure for EPDM repair using
ASTEC #2000 Flash Grade Waterproof
Membrane apply 6" wide polyester cloth with
12" wide application of #2000 Flash Grade
Waterproof Membrane over the repaired lap
seams using the 3-step flashing system.
1. ASTEC #2000 Flash Grade Waterproof
Membrane @ 82 sf/gal applied 12" wide.
2. 6" Polyester Cloth embedded into first coat.
Let dry 2-4 hours.
3. 12" wide apply second coat ASTEC #2000
Flash Grade Waterproof Membrane over
repaired area @ 82 sf/gal assuring no pin-
holing in repaired area.
I think that your idea sounds cheaper!
