Rubber roof coating on a Fleetwood.

I posted a question here the other and found out what I suspected, I have a rubber roof on my Fleetwood. The roof is in good shape, but every time it rains white residue runs down the side of the motorhome. It looks like it has been coated at one time.

Should I coat it again, or just give it a good cleaning?

Dicor makes a rubber roof cleaner, and a rubber roof treatment. Buy both. Clean then treat the roof. See if that helps before you think about re-coating it.

The white stuff is the normal oxidation of the white pigment in your rubber roof. None of the roof treatments will prevent it for very long - a couple months if you are lucky. Regular cleaning is the most effective solution and you don't need any special cleaners. Just detergent in water and a mild bristle brush or a mop. You can add some bleach if needed for mold/mildew.

Yeah I had the same mess when I did mine with the Camco cleaner. The mess down the sides was sickening. I did it in the shade out of the sun. As soon as I had the roof rinsed off good then it was a soap and brush scrub on the sides and rinsed. Nothing ever leached down after. Possibly you didn't have the residue rinsed completely off the roof.

Mine only has white streeks running down the windshield and front side windows. It is comming from the front cap on my Fleetwood. I have been told that it can be corrected by spraying the cap with clear paint which I am going to try if it gets warm enough to spray out of the can. LOL
