Mop and glow sounds good, but probably no UV protection?

There are several issues in waxing a rubber roof.

1: Safety.. I'd rather not walk on a waxed floor 12 feet off the ground with no safety rails.. Good way to walk on a waxed floor several feet above the ground,,, In the local hospital. I have some experience with that and would not like to duplicate.

Second.. I am concerned about the was actually amplifying the effects of sunlight and hastening the destruction of the roof.

What I use on my roof: Spic and Span,

Instead of a mop, I use a long handled "Van Wash" brush, it holds more cleaning solution, and the bristles do a better job than the mop does too. I tend to be very "Sloppy" about it, since the next thign I do is wash the sides.

Thanks in advance Tom.
I applied the mop n glow with a long handle sponge wax applicator. It is the kind that you can pull a lever and wring out the sponge. I dip the applicator in a bucket with some mop n glow, wring out the sponge, and apply it just like waxing a floor. I am able to apply it to the radius of the roof without any dripping down the sides of the coach. I believe the key is not to slop it on but to dampen the sponge with the wax and not let it drip.

Thanks I thought that would be the answer, but better to ask than make a total mess of my roof.

I used Mop&Glow in the past. Last year I was reading on a differnt forum and someone suggested Pledge Future Shine. I did a little research and found out it is acrylic based and does not yellow. Anyway, that is what I put on mine last year and it still looks great. I think it holds up better than the mop & glow I used in the past on my other RV's. You can pick it up at just about any of the big box stores. The link below shows you what your looking for if your intrested.

FYI-2 bottles was enough for 2 coats on a 37 ft. coach

Hi All:

Interesting discussion about using Mop & Glo on your RV roofs. Was wondering though...when we used to have a house before selling all and hittin the road, we DID use Mop & Glo on our kitchen/dinette area floors in the house. After about a year or so of using Mop & Glo, a definite residue of old Mop & Glo started to build up and was even noticeable as a kind of discolored plastic looking film on the floor.

Wouldn't this build up also eventually become a problem on an RV roof?? Especially around vent and/or A/C edges, etc. Ya sure wouldn't want to have to use a wax stripper to get the old Mop & Glo off and the roof would look like....heck!! Wouldn't it?

Steve

I sure hope that no one is saying to use Mop & Glow on a EPDM Rubber roof. We are talking about only using this on afiberglass roof, right?

Yes, fiberglass roofs only. Don't use this method on rubber (EDPM or TPO) roofs.

I had also ready about using Future acrylic floor polish. In fact, I did a test spot on the coach roof with Future to compare to the Mop n Glow (last summer). Basically, I could not detect a difference. Both seemed to hold up pretty well. If the Mop n Glow shows signs of yellowing, I will use the Future next time.

IMHO, I wouldn't think you could expect much UV protection from a product formulated for an indoor surface. Bob

I have used Protect-all on this RV for the past 4 years. It provides UV protection and a nice shine. It is designed to be used on the entire motorhome including the glass and rubber gaskets. Goes on easy (same consistency as liquid car wax) and buffs very easily by hand. I purchase it at Camping World and have seen it in RV dealer parts stores.
