Chuck I'll bet you never have streaks or have to worry about streaks with that kind of roof maintenance you do! Well done!

Wish I weren't so scared of heights and so large, I'd be up there cleaning it more than once or twice a year for sure.!

Yes, that's correct as long as I clean the roof a couple of times a year I don't get the white or black streaks. Before I knew about cleaning and treating the roof I would get them down the sides and windshield. Before that I had a lot of black mold on the roof, tried most everything to remove it nothing worked. I read on Dicor's web site you can use bleach to remove the spots. I finally read the literature that came with the MH it said the same. Before the cleaning I thought I would have to replace the roof was surprised how good the roof looked and felt when finished.

Thanks,
Chuck

X2!! Although I am not alone in favouring Tide Laundry as the best detergent out there. Put a couple cups of powder in a 1/4 pail of water, and brush it onto the area to be cleaned, and let it sit for 15 or twenty minutes to allow it to do the work it was designed to do. Then give it a good brushing where needed and rinse the surface clean.

For really stubborn stains, mix a thin paste of water and Tide, and apply to the problem areas and allow it to sit for an hour or two. That also works pretty good with interior roof stains.

I discovered this waaay back in the days of white-wall tires. None of the fancy specialized expensive stuff ever did all that great a job. Then one day, the only thing I had available was Tide laundry detergent. The results were like nothing I had ever seen before!

So . . . I now use it for the exterior of the MH to eliminate black streaks, white streaks, sap, etal.

I would not use Barkeeper's on an RV exterior. In addition to being abrasive, it contains a strong oxalic acid ingredient, which is probably why they caution against leaving it on any surface for more than a minute.

I'd pay you real money to come and care for mine that way!

I so wish it were accessible to me.

Hi,
I washed my rubber roof today with protect all roof cleaner. I could not be happier. Used other product but this gave me the best result. I do not have before pic but will post after pic when I get time. Might want to try.

My next coach will have a fiberglass roof. That way I can avoid having to deal with mold, mildew and chalking. My friend has a Winnebago Vista which has a fiberglass roof. He loves it because it is so low maintenance.

I washed my coach Good Friday eve with a plain old sudsy mix of Dawn and wow did it take the moldy looking slide toppers and awning and turn them looking almost new!

Also did the visible (from the ground) sides of the rubber roof, looks fantastic!

Plain old Dawn, amazing!

A fiberglass roof certainly doesn't eliminate chalk streaks down the sides of the rig.
