I crawled on mine to install MaxxAir vent covers with no issues. Prefer not to stand for fear of stepping off the slope. Plan to wash roof the same way even though I have seen workers more than one walking around but with several feet between them. Have to wonder how they work on ac units if they could not walk on the roof.

I am not proud of it.... I am fat. I walked gently on my old unit....mostly crawled. I think unless you are 150 or less I would try to step in the rafters if walking and wear soft toe/sole shoes to keep your toe from digging in or set up.

Walking on Roof

I have 2016 Wildcat with ladder. I weigh 250 and have walked on it multiple times with no problems yet.

I have thought about just that, rip it length ways two foot by eight foot round off the corners.

Pull them up with some rope, use them like carpet runners, extra support and not as slick as the rubber roof when wet.

A lot depends on the roof construction. Our 2017 Roo has a laminated roof and the foam in the center is about 4" thick. Its solid as a rock as long as you do not step directly over one of the AC ducts that are molded into the foam and run front to back, then it gives a little there.

Our previous Keystone product had steel crowned rafters @ 2' on center and the roof plywood (around 3/8") with fiberglass blanket insul. You did not want to walk on that roof and the few times I did if cracked and moaned. I would lay pieces of 2" Dow foam board on it to do roof maintenance and cleaning still trying to only step over the rafters themselves.
