I have a 38'tr and the roof paint is looking chalky. Is there something I can do? If it needs new paint what would you suggest?

cP-
I don't think the roof's were ever painted, except at the edges. If you want to paint the roof, I'd suggest linear polyurethane. Check w/West Marine for Interlux or Sterling brands. Roof needs good cleaning first, and maybe its a good time to redo all sealants. You can remove the sealants, paint clean tothe edge of vents, etc., and seal down to the cured paint.

cPaul:

You probably only need to clean the roof thoroughly, polish it with an oxidation remover and then wax it. The chalkiness is just the fiberglass oxidizing.

$10 and a lot of elbow grease. You might consider an orbital polisher. They're cheap and work better than abused elbows.

For those less inclined, most guys/companies that wax coaches will do the roof for $100 more.
