    On our Cobalt, the nubs on the ceiling are to indicate the location for the optional roof vent. I would assume a/c too, but it seems that an a/c usually requires extra supports, due to the weight.

    I found those "nubs" in our E1 roof today. They are off center and very much close to the door in the ceiling. Where did you learn of what these are may I ask? Thanks...

    I think I asked about them when we looked at the Coleman campers at one or another dealers.

    The nubs are to identify where to install either a roof fan or A/C. If an A/C there will be metal braces/supports the width of the roof on either side of the nubs. If not, it is most likely for a fan/vent. You can install the supports by purchasing model kit, or aftermarket if the roof can lift it. Your manual should address it.
