Maybe a fiberglass roof but not a rubber roof. I use Murphy's Oil soap on ours and maybe a squirt of Awesome in some real dirty areas. I guess I should ask, there are two types of rubber roof. Which one do you have? EPDM or Dicor???

I do not use a Power / Pressure Washer on our RV for anything.

Good way to damage / destroy seals and especially seals on Dual Pane windows.

I will not take the risk.

I searched for this answer at the beginning of this summer on another motorhome site and found this to work great.
I Use a product called "Awesome" you can get it at a store called Dollar Tree everything in the store is $1.00 or less so a 32oz. bottle is $1.00, I bought several and it cleans the roof without any damage and those white streaks that is caused by the rain run off of a chalking rubber roof from setting in the sun will clean off easily.
It said not to use on glass but I did not have a problem with that either, but I try not to spray it on full strength.

I was told by an RV repair Guy to use dawn dishwashing liquid. It works well. Use only the blue nothing with citrus.

Original Blue Dawn works great, but as above post, nothing with citrus.

I would have to agree to a point. If one does not have the ability to properly use a power washer, dont do so.
I use a pressure washer and Murphys Oil soap and have for many years.

My dealer recommended powdered Tide laundry detergent. Wet surface, sprinkle a little on and scrub with soft broom, then rinse well. I tried this last fall and it worked well. When bringing the coach out of storage this spring, a rinsing with water cleaned it nicely. He did caution when cleaning the roof ( with Tide ) it would be very slick....he wasn't kidding! I was happy with the results, a small box is inexpensive and should last a few seasons.

I use powdered Tide w/bleach too. Just mix it in a bucket though and brush the whole roof and use a garden sprayer, NOT a pressure washer.

I've also heard of using Tilex on the roof to clean it and some say it works really well, has anyone tried that?
