Cleaning roof?

Any suggestions on cleaning the roof of our motorhome. It is sealed great but I think it's either old weather seal or oxidized. Any info would be great

If your Imperial has a fiberglass roof it is oxidized.

I have a fiberglass roof, last year I took the time to completely scrub the roof using a concoction of Awesome, tide, and a little bleach. I used a long handle stiff brush which got +80% of mold/dirt off. I then used a small pressure washer to get more off and as need a stiff hand brush.

Got the roof as clean and white as it was when new.

I then applied 2 coats of Zip High Traffic Floor Wax with a long handle sponge roller (small diameter).

6 months later I was able to easily wash the roof clean and then applied 2 more coats of the Zip Wax.

I use spic and span with a small amount of bleach and clean spring and fall. No mold or mildew. I use a soft car washing brush.
