Looking for opinions on best roof cleaner and best sealant for my 45 ft nitro toyhauler and maybe how much ( gals or whatever ) it may take to cover it

I have had great results with this product from ProtectAll. There is also a separate conditioner by the same company. A little goes a long way. It comes in several sizes, so I bought the larger size and used my own squirt bottles for application. My roof is only 35' and I had enough to do it three times (once a year). My roof (main and slides) looks better than new. The conditioner definitely makes it even easier the next time and it also seems to stay cleaner, longer..
The best thing about this product is there is no rinse off (use a bucket and sponge) so you will not get the streaks down the sides where other products will remove your wax.
This made cleaning my roof so much easier and faster that I don't even mind doing it I only used the stiff brush on a couple of stubborn stains, the rest was just wipe on, wipe off, with a sponge.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Which type of roof? EPDM or TPO? EPDM roofing has a smooth surface. TPO (thermoplastic olefin) has an orange peel texture. TPO doesn't need any kind of sealer or treatment other than washing with Dawn dish soap, Spic & Span or Top Job.

Some TPO roofing membranes are not chemically compatible with off-the-shelf sealants, resulting in bloating and disfiguring of the membrane.

NMWildcat, that second picture with the 'in progress' is pretty impressive, IMO.


I've purchased that same suite of products, but haven't used it yet due to when I got the camper (last Sept), where it's been at since (storage), and where it's at now (dealer; dropped it off last week).

FWIW, I did walk the roof before taking delivery; except for a stray bootprint at the top front, the roof was spotless / intact.

Once I get it back, I'll hit it with the cleaner / conditioner, and hopefully have an easy time cleaning it for the life of the trailer, looking at NMWildcat's results.

BTW - my roof is EPDM
BUT - my slide has TPO on it. Go figure (I actually have, but don't want to sidetrack the thread)

Thanks for responding. Both our trailers are outdoors 24/7. Is yours under cover or outdoors?
