I try to walk near the edge and stay away from roof openings until I get to where I want to go. When I wash it I just stay away from the openings.

The manufacture's service manual from Fleetwood recommends periodic checking/inspection and once/year cleaning. I use the air compressor to blow out the AC condenser coils (hose will reach from the ground), re-caulk, clean, inspect, etc.

I have been up here at least a dozens times, and to my knowledge only one person at a time. Two might be ok, dono.. I wouldn't risk it.

I walk on my roof to complete any work/maintenance that requires me to be up there. I've taken the Newmar plant tour. When installing the roof mounted components, there are several people on the roof. I've also seen how Newmar makes the roof. For me there is no fear of more than one person on the roof at the same time.

I have a 2008 Monaco Diplomat and have washed and inspected the roof 3 times.
The last time washing the roof I found 2 fiberglass cracks. There is no way I could have seen the cracks on on a ladder leaning on the side of the MH.
After the cracks are fixed I will be on the roof after and during any trips
out in the MH looking for any potential problems. Might be a over kill for a few months.
Hate to think of the problems I could have had if I had not checked the roof and went into the winter months with all the rain.

My opinion is that it looks a lot farther down than it looked when I was on the ground looking up.
