Our last Dutch Star had the BriteTek roofing. Newmar said to use the Murphys Oil Soap, which I tried to do twice a year. Then I would spray on 303 and mop it around. After 13 years the roof looked almost new as did the shower skylight.

The commercial "RV" products may work, but many have found they are not needed. A bucket of car washing soap, a bit of bleach, a soft brush is about all you need unless you park it under some serious trees that drip sap all over it.

When I first bought my previous MH I asked Thor what to do. They said spic N Span in a bucket of water, soft brush, no special conditioners required. Dawn does a good job too. So you can buy a product or squirt some dish washing liquid in a bucket.

We wash ours with dawn and then protect it with 303. We are full timers so we wash the rig whenever we can. Heck, when we were on our trip to Alaska, we washed the entire rig about 5 times.
