Rubber roof question

Hey all I am needing some help here! I am going to re seal my rubber roof on my 1990 class c and am realizing it needs to be cleaned. I was planning on spot cleaning the areas that the dicor is applied to with white gas and then applying. Once the dicor is cured wash and seal the roof with appropriate products to prevent the chalking. What do you think I'm I on the right track?

Use of gasoline is not recommended.
There are many DIY video's to help you. Google "You tube RV Rubber Roof Repair"
Here are two: EternaBond Travel Trailer Rubber Roof Repair, Edge of the Roof - YouTube

Why are you going to use gas to clean that when there is the correct cleaners out there gas will break down the rubber surface

From Dicor on the rubber roof maintenance:


Quote:
CAUTION: DO NOT use cleaners or conditioners containing petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives, or citric-based cleaners. You may cause irreparable damage to your roof
So don't use any petroleum products, go to Dicor's website and find a good cleaner that will not damage your roof.

It depends on the temp during the hot months it should cure out in about a week or so when colder it could take longer, It will form a skin on top but under the skin its still soft. you just have to watch and feel when its firm it should wash fine
