Mop and glow with a damp sponge mop. The only way to travel.

Having just waxed my roof by hand, I am incensed that I could have simply used a little Mop and Glow and a mop. Some of the best ideas are the simplest.

Wax Fiberglass Roof

I would think that mop n glo would eventually "yellow" especially sitting out in the sun. Has anyone had this problem? Even though it is much more work, I would think a good wax job followed by 303 Protectant would be best. An electric buffer could be used to wax and buff (not a rotary buffer-might burn through the gel coat on fiberglass.

And if it does yellow, and it bothers you, go strip it and do it again. The net idea is to protect the roof and if M&G does that at the end of a throw-away-mop handle great. Beats the heck out if hand waxing or hauling a buffer up on the roof. There are times when a simple solution is just fine.

We are bringing our new one home this weekend hopefully and the first thing I'm doing is mop&Glow the roof and wax the rest. I'll start off right anyway.

The cleaner the roof stays the cleaner the Rig stays, wax helps keep the roof clean. G

I figure if you can't see it from the ground, why wax it?

Yes it should be cleaned and if appropriate waxed. A clean and waxed roof will result in less black streaks down the side. The wax also helps protect the roof from damaging sun exposure. It will help resale value at the appropriate time as well.

Anyone ever have a deck on the back of their house? If you didn't use Thompsons water seal (or like) the wood would look like crap after just a few years. The same happens to fiberglass roofs and some other materials as well.
