Hi my name is Robert....

IF this is a 2017 and you feel you have a bad weld then I would no doubt let the dealer tackle this, in order to get at the roof joist you would need to pull down the interior ceiling, pull the insulation out of that area to have a better look. This is something the average owner would not be set up to do and even if so it would be best to let the dealer do this under warranty, they can get prints from the manufacturer. If this is something you are going to tackle and are going to weld make sure you disconnect the battery and the RV is not plugged into power. You sould be able to get at the framing from inside but it can be a big task..... The ceiling panels should be 1/8" luan and normally are 4' x 8' and the ceiling material will cover them.... Let me know if you still need more help on this... Robert
