Roof care

Morning, I have a 2015 HS6601 truck camper. I was wondering how and what y'all use to care for the roof. Thanks for the help

Just Dawn dish soap and water, with a soft scrub brush.

Roof care

Do you use anything for protection from the sun and weather?
Thanks

Not really other than refraining from parking under trees that drip sap (like pines). You do need to physically get up there at least yearly and check the roof caulk around all the seals and skylights. The main point of entry for water is the roof and where it seals to the edges.

IO don't do anything to my roof at all. Just check the caulk twice a year, but I park my unit inside when I'm not using it and in the off season too.

One time per year I scrub the roof with Spic n' Span and a medium stiff brush. At that time I also look at all the caulking for cracks or damage.

I store this TC inside and out of the winter weather. I would think that storing inside helps the longevity of the caulking and the roof membrane.
