What is a quality UV protectant for a rubber roof? Thanks for the advice.

Best thing I know of as a protectant - UV and otherwise - is 303 Protectant. Its great for all plastics and rubber including tires. Not cheap but I have found good deals on it at Amazon.

Yep, used 303 for years on our '02 DSDP, roof still looked great after 13 years and always being stored outside.

I agree with 303. If it's rubber or plastic, it gets 303. Or, 303 Fabric Protector for the Awning and Slide Toppers.

How often do you need to apply 303 to the roof?

I do believe that the rubber roof has it's own, as well as TPO (what I have). My roof still looks great after 14 years...I do check it regularly and a couple years ago I re-caulked and eternabonded the roof where it needed it and it is still beautiful.
