Fiberglass roof maintenance

Hello all,
We have a 2018 2401W MSB with a fiberglass roof. Is there anything special I need to know about maintaining and walking on it.
Thanks in advance!

Where good grippy shoes when up there.
Keep it clean, check seams and accessories for cracks in the seals...especially the 4 corners where the caps meet.

DannyR, welcome! We have the same roof. As stated above, inspect all of the caulking at the roof factory seams.... front, back and down both sides and around anything that required cutting a hole through the roof. It will crack and you can wipe it clean and lay a thin bead of new dicor right over the top. Ours had a few two inch cracks at one year old and at three years had a whole lot. You will find many, many posts and YouTube videos on variations of how to do this. If you are one of the fortunate ones that use covered storage, you can relax these inspections quite a bit. Otherwise, that is about all there is to do to this type of roof other than cleaning it.
