Dicor used to recommend Spic N Span to clean their EDPM material, but stopped when they began selling commercial stuff.
I have used Spic N Span and it works. Last time I used DirtX, I think it's like Spic N Span on steroids... The roof came out WHITE! No black dots, or gray areas. I used DirtX on my fiberglass roof on the MH, and it came out WHITE all over too.
I keep worn-out RV wash brushes to use on the roof, no kneeling or bending with a broom handle in the brush, no pressure washer to push water past a weak seal.

Ray,IN: Can you wipe it off or you need to hose it off?
Thanks

I just hosed off my roof to remove the dirt and Spic N Span or Dirtex solution, I don't think wiping will remove everything. Speaking from experience, raise the roof antenna and satellite dish before climbing on the roof.

So you can clean under them would be my guess.

Yes, much easier to clean under them when they are in the up position.

And, it prevents DW from getting upset when I enter the coach with wet, soapy shoes to raise them, and another trip up the ladder.

Not at all. That was my fault for not writing my thoughts clearly.
