  • Safety first! Be extremely careful whenever working on your RV roof. You can be seriously injured from a fall. You have to get on the roof of the RV to properly clean & inspect it for any damage or potential water leaks. Some RV roofs are more structurally sound than others. It may be necessary to use a couple 2X4 pieces of plywood or particle board to help distribute your weight between the roof rafters when on the roof. Regardless of the roofs structural integrity, walk lightly, & be careful.

  • Use a garden hose: NEVER use cleaners/conditioners that contain petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives, or citrus ingredients. These cleaners can cause permanent damage to rubber or vinyl. Most rubber roof manufacturers recommend using a medium bristle brush & a non-abrasive cleaner. For light cleaning use warm water & a mild detergent like Dawn dish liquid. For difficult cleaning, & to condition/protect the roof use commercial cleaning products specifically for the roofing material your RV has.
