Rubber roof coating system

First of all, what is a EPDM rubber membrane?

has anyone installed the Dicor 2 part coating system? did u have any problems with it going on?
i'm getting ready to undertake it if i can get the weather to cooperate long enough for me to cover the sides and clean and paint it on. my roof is 10 yrs old and i can see a gator skin the under surface is expanding or the upper surface is shrinking. i'm hoping by painting this on i will be able to extend my roof life...hopefully by 10yrs.
the instructions caution abt protecting the side of the trailer and completing the job within the same day (without going out and rereading, i believe it has to be done within 6 hrs of the cleaning).

The previous owners of the unit I bought had that Dicor 2 part system done. I've looked into it and have spoke to a couple RV repair centers. I've heard nothing bad about it. When I think mine is due for another coat I'll go that route. The coating is fairly smooth but not as bare EPDM. It's not a thick coating but enough to protect the EPDM from the elements IMHO.

When I called Dicor the lady told me the critical item to do it clean it thoroughly and let it dry before applying the coating.

i was concerned abt the type of roof. looks like u have a cardnal but a year newer than mine. we probably have the same material up there.
after reading the label, i'm more concerned with getting that cleaner on the sides. tried to put visquine up today but a little squal came thru and took that off...maybe thursday...
