I wax my roof about once a year. I wax the other components like the A/C covers and the vent covers. When I'm done, I slide 8K genrator out and wax it too. Can never look too good.

A coat of wax or protectant will help keep the dirt & debris from sticking to and possibly staining the roof, just as it does on the body of the vehicle. Makes cleaning faster the next time.

When washing or waxing, I always start at the front and move towards the back, so that I am never standing on a wet or slippery surface. Just like any work at heights you have to respect gravity and always be aware of your situation.

And, as they say in the roofing business, "Never step back to admire your work"

I have always washed my RV roofs a couple times a year and last fall I began using Mop N Glo on my fiberglass roof last year. It seems to cut down on streaks from water runoff, at least so far. It's not what I would call shiny or slippery and it certainly doesn't take long to apply.

Someone has suggested that "nobody ever sees your roof", but that hasn't been my experience. We are in hilly campgrounds often enough that I have seen my roof - and others - quite a few times. Some of them are plumb ugly!
