Weight on Roof

I have a 2017 Ventana 4002. It is time to pressure wash and clean the roof but before I get up there, what is the weight limit for an individual getting up on the roof?

The ladder is the limiting factor as far as I'm concerned , 250# load limit on most .
I weigh 280 and I'm on the roof of my coach 2/3 times a year for cleaning , BUT , I do tend to step only on the roof trusses ,or if I have to kneel , I made two; 2' square plywood sheets with carpet on both sides to spread the load and protect the roof material, and my knees.

BTW, if you have rubber roof , I'd avoid the pressure washer ; way too easy to damage the material, if you get too close; or peel off sealant from around vents etc.

roof construction

The build sheet says Brite Tek Roof with "Walkable" Deck. I am not sure what that is supposed to mean. I can't tell if it is rubber roof or not. But I hear you on the using a pressure washer.

My guess, if you can climb up there (on the ladder) it will hold you.
