Just got a bottle of that last week and put it on the front of the MH yesterday. It claims easy on, easy off...and it was both.

Don't believe I want it on my roof. I'm up there all the time and don't want it slippery.

RVers... be careful with your roof cleaning chemicals if you have a EDPM type roof. The material is very sensitive to chemicals...a few of us have ruined sections of a good roof due to poor use of chemicals. There are some decent reading materials out there and some you tube videos to help you along. Mild soap and a non scratching scrub powder is one recommendation. "Regardless of the type of rubber roof you have, NEVER use any cleaners or conditioners that contain petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives or citrus ingredients. These types of cleaners can cause permanent damage to rubber and vinyl surfaces. The first indication of rubber roofing coming in contact with petroleum products is a bubble forming. The thickness of the rubber is compromised and chances are it will never adhere to the roof decking again." Polk

I try to check the roof twice a year as per Newmar's owners manual, need to get up there and do it again.

We have the BriteTek roof, Newmar says to clean only with Murphy's Oil Soap so that's what I use along with a stiff brush. As I clean I also check the sealant.

Once a year, I use car soap and a green 3m scrubbie. On my hands and knees, took 3 hours including under the ac covers etc.
I was so tired I didn't wax it tho.

Twice a year and the cleaning allows me to do the inspection. More interested in the inspection than the cleaning.

Just got motivated after reading some of the roof photoed responses. Went up on roof and scrubbed... it took about 30 min of scrubbing. Found two small tears. Repaired those with eternal bond tape....and also did some recoating with leftover liquid roof . Glad that i got involved in this thread.

Thanks Mr.D... I will be using Murphy's Oil soap next month on my TPO cleaning. Seems TPO is a plastic, not rubber like EPDM. About 80% of products are usable on both TPO and EPDM.
I hope that TPO plastic is as tuff as plastic wrapping my steak last evening. It'll last forever...

Fire Up, if I had a roof that slick I'd worry about falling off. It does look nice though.

John How,
I certainly appreciate your concern. Yep, if it's wet, it's fairly slippery. But, I'm not usually up there when it's wet unless I'm washing it and then, I'm extra careful. I just keep it that way because the better the condition it's kept in, the less chance of it having problems and, it withstands the elements a lot better.

Murphy's oil soap on my TPO roof. It is recommended by the maker and it works well. However, I don't do it every year...just when I feel like it...maybe every three years. But, I store it under a roof and watch for leaks when I'm on the road in the rain. No problems so far.
