Hi There
Can't answer about the lifting issue.... Any pictures would help.
As far as roof paint is concerned, you need an EPDM type paint and one place to get it is from here http://www.abp-accessories.co.uk/productindi.php?id=1990

Hi,

The best thing to do is to clean the roof and check all the seams and re tape them, then paint Liquid Roof rubber paint EPDM,
I have been looking on Ebay, but they will not ship from America !!!

Anyway, I have now found a place in the UK, http://www.motorhomeroofrepair.co.uk and have ordered the tape and paint.

Regards

Tony

Hi its OK if the rubber roof is loose in places as long as its not punctured.
An EPDM roof is different from a rubber roof,the rubber roof continually sheds its surface and this is quite normal.
My 02 Daybreak had a rubber roof and was a pain to keep clean bit like washing a pumice stone.
