I have used a soft car wash brush on each of my 7 rv roofs. I usually use blue dawn in water to clean. My current Thor coach is very hard to clean so I will be looking for some new ideas on a cleaning solution.

I had black and mold on roof of my dynasty and I found that simple green did not cut it. I found mean green mold remover at dollar store. I sprayed on and let set while I did next area 3 x 3 I went back with stiffer white brush and it came off wonderfully I did not get any on sides as I used a old towel to wipe it off. see pic

Yep Don,
Sometimes it just takes "manning up" and use what's needed to get the job done and quit worrying about it. Nice job. When we had our '99 Fleetwood Bounder 34V with the F-53 Chassis, that rubber roof was cleaned with a good brush and soap and water, about once every two months. It was done that often 'cause it was stored outside and, in the area we lived in, would get considerably dirtier than if under any garage or cover.

It never hurt that roof. There's so many folks think that stuff is tissue paper and if you breath on it, you'll damage it. Aint happening. The SUN is it's worst enemy, by far. Keeping it clean helps keep contaminates, acid rain and other air born crap off it.
Scott
