Fiberglass Roof

Started the clean up to retreat my Fiberglass Roof on a 2004 Sea Breeze.
first step completed clean with detergent and water. Next step clean with Dicor Fiberglass Cleaner and scuff with steel wool. After that paint the roof with two coats of Dicor Fiberglass Sealer. Anyone have any pointers to speed the process. Oh forgot to use Dicor Around all the vents antenna ladder,;etc.

Are you sure you have a fiberglass or a TPO roof?

I have a TPO roof, Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polyprophylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof.

I called Dicor, who supposedly made the roof for Coachmen, and they said to only wash it a couple times a year and never re-coat it. They said re-coating them breaks down the material.

My roof on my 2004 Sea Breeze looks really good. I just used some
EternaBond RoofSeal WHITE Tape on all the joints as a preventive measure.
when I bought the motorhome. Thats stuff is really good in my opinion.

My roof is 13-14 years old no leaks and I plan on keeping it that way for as long as we own the MH it has always been outside never covered as they say a little maintenance now will go a long way.

If you get time post a pic or 2. My motorhome is inside 5 months a year, as we our not retired yet, so it still looks pretty good.

May have to do to my roof what you just did, in a few years.

My roof is going on 16 years old and sits out side 24/7. Eternabond the seams. Wash the roof get a sponge mop from the dollar store after washing the roof wax it with Protect-all and the mop and you can do it standing up. No need to wipe off wax after applying
