What's the best product to clean a rubber roof. Do you clean the roof?

For routine cleaning, I use Thetford Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner. I use that on it 3 to 4 times a year.

For heavy mildew stains (I've only had to deal with it once, on this used Cruiser I have now, when I bought it), Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover works wonders. It took 6 bottles, about 4 hours, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got that roof looking great. A word of caution is to liberally keep the sides washed down to prevent the bleach streaking your paint and decals.

Turbs;
What kind of soap do you use? Do you use a soft scrub brush or just terri cloth rags or what? I imagine some soaps would be incompatible with rubber, so let us know. Tanks!
