Fiberglass roof staining.

OK I need help. My fiberglass roof is 4 years old and staining my motorhome. How can I stop this. I wash the roof every other month ,however, it still stains after each rain.
Should I try wax? What about 3-0-3 protectent?
ANY suggestions.. THANKS

After thoroughly cleaning my roof last year I finally broke down and applied a couple coats of Zep Commercial Floor Wax last year then 6 months later washed and applied 2 more coats. The roof really looks clean and white and no more white streaks staining the sides of my coach.

Do some research, there are alternatives to this but it worked for me.

The floor wax will work as posted above. Sounds weird but I used it when I had a Winnebago. Clean it good and apply a few coats. Reapply once a year.

I applied with a small sponge roller, easy to control, used a paint pan & extension on the roller so no bending. Took less then 30 minutes to apply a coat after the roof was washed.

I use Washwax.com every other month. Apply liberally and don't wipe off. No more white streaks, actually stopped chalking. I also use it on coach the rest of the coach with great results.

I did the ZEP high traffic wax last year after a thorough clean. I just used a swiffer mop with throw away pads. We wintered in South Texas and it still looks good and no streaking. I'll do a couple maintenance coats this fall.

It's just chalky paint. Wax will work for a few weeks or months, but the real solution is to repaint it. Dicor makes a fiberglass roof paint that does a nice job - see https://dicorproducts.com/catalog/ro...-roof-coating/

Dicor recommends a major cleaning and prep procedure, but on a 4 year old roof you ought to be able to just scrub thoroughly to remove dirt and chalk and paint. I did my 10 year old roof that way, with the addition of wiping with "liquid sandpaper" to clean & soften the surface a bit better. The whole project took just one afternoon and one gallon of paint for two coats.
