The manufacturer has nothing to gain by selling you a maintenance product that is not designed to get the maximum service like from your equipment.
Yes, it might be at a premium price but you can be assured it is the right product for the job.
Not disagreeing with what you just said, but I've heard from two MH manufacturers who say no special product required. It does not mean you don't maintain it or wash it. Just what types of products are required to do so.

My bad, I misunderstood your post.
Per my Newmar Manual, I clean my roof with Murphy's Oil Soap and do not treat it with anything. Been leak free since 03 so I guess Newmar was right.

For those recommending a "mild detergent" and "bleach", what is your ratio and what detergent are you using ? Last year when I did clean mine I used Clorox 2 Stain Remover and Color Booster. It did a great job of cleaning all the dirt and whatever else. I have no idea how long it had been since it was cleaned before I did it but it did a beautiful job.
