Dawn dish detergent (original blue) in a bucket of hot water works great to cut the grime. A spray bottle with a diluted bleach solution & a scrub brush will kill mold & mildew. Work front to back, work in small sections & rinse well.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

For TPO roofs, I was told to use Murphy's Oil soap.

Newly Acquired TPO Rcoof

Our newly acquired RV has a TPO roof, so they tell me. I have gleaned that I need Murphy's Oil to clean it... Question is: Is there any special treatment coating in which to keep it clean?
I read about folks with Fiberglass roofs and with EPDM roofs using different things to restore and preserve... No mention of TPO Roof coatings however.
Thanks, Roger

Yep, that's what Newmar recommends.

TPO really doesn't need anything but I've used 303 on mine as well as the vent covers and skylight.

X2 for using 303. I believe anything that can be done to protect from uv is a plus. Been using it for almost 20 years on the entire coach, roof to tires.

TPO is a thermoplastic polyolefin roofing product used on many comercial buildings and is one of the types comonly refered to as " rubber roof" materials.
303 Aerospace Protectant is used to inhibit UV rays and is SPF 40.
