rubber roof care

Tis the season to wash the rubber roof, check to ensure no potential leaky areas are forming and this year I am doing a UVA protective coating.

Does anybody have favorite products?

I use plain water. Haven't added any UVA protective coating to it in it's 14 years.
Manufacture said non is needed.

But the manufacture did start selling protector after a lot of after market were.
Probably thought they might as well get some of the money that is being trowed away for something not needed.

Dicro said several years ago.
Proper care and maintenance of your recreational vehicle, including your Brite-Ply or Brite-TEK roof, is important for trouble free performance.
Normal maintenance is simple, easy, and requires no special material.
1. Keep your roof clean. Clean yourroof at least four (4) times annually.
For normal cleaning
Use Dicor Rubber Roof Cleaner RP-RC160C concentrate to clean complete roof or RP-RC320S ready to use cleaner in a spray bottle for smaller areas. (See CAUTION below.)

Rinse complete roof with clean water toremove any loose dirt or debris.

Using a medium bristle brush, along with the cleaner mixed with 2 or 3 gallons of water, scrub the entire roof. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to avoid residue build up on the roof or sidewalls of the vehicle.

For more difficult stains, you may use RP-RC160C in its original concentrated form. For stubborn stains, use a cloth dampened with mineral spirits.
DO NOT use mineral spirits in a large area or allow it to soak into the membrane.
CAUTION:
DO NOT use cleaners or conditioners containing petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives, or citric-based cleaners.
You may cause irreparable damage to your roof and/or may void your warranty

Not one word about using any protector.

The dealer suggested protecting it to extend life. We keep it clear of debris too.

Here in NW WA we don't get hit with the harsh sun and heat for months on end but are prone to moss
