Hello all, after searching around I finally found a TT for the lake lot that I couldn't pass up. I got a Terry M-28J for $5K....It has a slide, awning, everything. Was stored for the last two years from an couple that could no longer go out. Anyways I am busy cleaning and going thru everything and have a question....Can I walk on the roof to clean it? Also is White Wall tire cleaner ok to use on the EPDM roof? Thanks all!!

Congratulations on the new TT. If the trailer is structurally sound, you should be able to walk on the roof.

You don't want to use anything with petroleum solvents to clean the EPDM roof. About the strongest thing I use is a solution of Spic 'n Span in water. Check the bottle of whitewall tire cleaner - my recollection is that the manufacturers warn against getting that stuff on painted surfaces which will happen when you wash and rinse it off the roof. If that's the case, there's every chance that it could stain the paint and decals.

I'd suggest picking up some rubber roof cleaner at WalMart, your local RV store, etc.

Welcome to the forum .

All I ever used on the rubber roof on the previous trailer was Spic and Span and water. You can not keep the roof spotless. It will discolor but still keep the water our. Of more concern is the caulking and seams.

I washed ours once o twice a year to keep the white chalking down. Makes a mess of the sides.

As for walking on the roof, it depends on the roof decking. If it gives when you step on it, don't walk on it.

A couple of pieces of plywood (maybe 2X4') will give more support. Stand on one while you move the other.

Forgot to mention....once up on a wet roof, be careful. The soap or cleaner makes it pretty slippery.
