3-0-3 products

What about using 3-0-3 products on your roof? Any ideas to stop streaking?

I am using it now but view it as a short term solution. Only last a few weeks then needs wiped down. I spent a lot of time removing the floor wax ZEP like surface and intend on going back with a good auto wax.

We use Rejex on the whole coach and we don't have any problems with the streaking. The coach is stored outside in the GA weather and we use the Rejex in the spring and fall.

You will need to remove all of the old wax to get good results. They recommend Xtreme clean.

DWG (Dry Wash N Guard) works great for me. Cuts way down on the dirt build up and on the windshield it even cuts down or eliminates needing the wipers. Been using it for years.
Need to take the time to do the Magna but the DW's health problems come first!
303 Protectant is what you're supposed to use on the 3M mask along with a paste wax..

I get it from their website. It isn't cheap but I haven't found anything better. The shelf life is 2 years if stored right so I buy it by the gallon and then pour it into smaller squeeze bottles.

I use 303 on the dash of my car, never tried it on the roof.

I've used 303 for years on both rubber (EDPM/TPM) and fiberglass RV roofs. Many whom I hold in high regard pertaining to this subject have told me it's the best product for UV protection. My RVs are frequently in the desert southwest so I regularly use 303 on not only the roof but on the RV body and also the tires.

The problem I see with RejeX is that it contains petroleum distillates. 303 does not contain ANY petroleum products, alcohol, or silicone. It was only sold in the aviation and aerospace industry up until the mid 1980s when it was repackaged and introduced to be used in marine and RV applications.

I'm thoroughly sold on 303 and use it on just about everything that comes in contact with UV rays ...all RV exterior surfaces, rubber weatherstripping/moldings, etc., decals (RejeX should not be used on decals because of the petroleum distillates), tires, wheels, wheel covers, dashboard inside, etc., etc., etc.

I go through so much of it for the RVs, cars, etc. that I buy it by the 5-gallon container or one gallon jugs depending on the price offered ...although it stores well and will last for years if stored in temperatures above freezing.

I agree with you on Rejex. I was considering it also until I realized it contains petroleum distillates. Not a good combination for my Britec Roof.
I use 303 on everything that's rubber or plastic.

303 Protectant is all I ever coated the BriteTek roof on our '02 DSDP with. Still would have looked good as new if I had cared to scrub a little harder even after 13 years.

303 was recommend by Country Coach, Inc for roof treatment many years ago. It seems to work, but must be reapplied every so often.

303 is an anti-UV protectant. Might help preserve EPDM rubber. Maybe even fiberglass. But if your roof is already causing streaks (that's chalk run-off), applying 303 will do nothing. The chalk is usually color pigment, either impregnated in the rubber roof membrane or painted on fiberglass. You need to clean the decaying pigment off as much as possible and either seal it up with a wax-type product, or re-paint it. Repaint is best & easiest for fiberglass (Dicor Fiberglass Roof Coat works well), while a wax or an EPDM roof coat works best for rubber roofs.

I scrub/clean my EPDM roof with soap and liberally apply Protectant 303 to the point it's "wet" looking and I let it just soak in. I've done it this way for years .

Is your roof rubber, TPO or fiberglass?

If fiberglass, I recommend Meguiar's Fiberglass Oxidation Removal Kit to restore the shine to the roof and protect it from further oxidation. I got the kit at a marine supply store, but it is also available online.

If rubber or TPO, I recommend Protect All Rubber Roof Cleaner and Rubber Roof Treatment. The cleaner takes off the chalkiness, and the treatment has UV inhibitor to help keep chalkiness from returning. The treatment smells and goes on like 303, but it is supposed to last longer on a horizontal surface that has more sun exposure.

Caution: both products can make your roof slippery when it is wet.
