Tiffin roof

Hello everyone, I sure appreciate all the help you can find from so many “friends” on this site. I mean you really are a friend when you share your thoughts and experience with others. Thank you!! Now with that said, my 2011 Phaeton, when it rains the white washes down on the side of the rv. How do I fix this.

Our 2013 Phaeton 40 QBH was doing the same thing this summer. I got on the roof and washed it with a good brush and rinsed it off. Once it dried, I then put on a good coat of marine wax. I used https://www.meguiars.com/marine/prod...2-32-oz-liquid


Any good fiberglass/gelcoat wax will do the job. It took me about a 5 hour job start to finish including the washing. I plan on doing this twice a year to keep the gelcoat from getting chalky again.

Clean it and rub it down with 303 it works.

A friend of mine painted the whole roof with a two part epoxy with great results. I think he posted about on a Tiffin Facebook page.

Many have gone this route.

It's all in the prep, however

Dicor makes a Fiberglass Roof Coat (paint) that is easy enough to apply once you clean the roof thoroughly. I washed it and then used Liquid Sandpaper on mine - basically just wiped it down with that and some rags. Painted on two coats in an afternoon.
