Sealent for roof

Have a 2012 fifth wheel we have camped 30 nights so far this year, I am getting ready to start my fall camper tasks, waxing, etc and I am wondering if a roof sealent is needed? the camper is stored inside when not being used and if not necessary I will wait another year to seal the rubber roof. Thx

Roof sealant is what you put around the fixtures and vents coming through the roof a conditioner is what is to treat the rubber itself to protect it we knew what you were inquireing about. It's still new and clean and white and your doing the best thing for it by keeping it inside and covered out of the sun which is the major cause of aging on the roofs, you can wash it get it clean and put it on next spring it would be fine

Newmar says to check the roof joint sealant every 6 months and patch as necessary. So I do. Ours is stored outside and gets morning sun everyday (if there's any sun that is).
