Roof cleaner?

Can anyone recommend a good fiberglass roof cleaner?

I keep it sparkling white and we just got back from 10 days at Disney and the trees at ft wilderness dropped some sort of berries/acorns on the roof that left reddish brown spots everywhere and it isn't coming off with the usual mguires car wash wax and aerospace 303. I'm annoyed!

Let me know what you all use

Will be interesting to see what replies appear, I use the same thing as you, Maguires wash/wax. As a matter of fact, just about to start a roof wash right now!

That usually does the job for me.

These berry/acorn type things left a reddish orange spottiness in a few areas and I'm thinking I need a stronger cleaner but don't want it to be too harsh on the fiberglass and sealant.

needs to be safe if some gets onto paint of coach as well.

You wax the entire roof? What do you use for wax? Once done is it slick to walk on?

No I just cleaned the roof and washed off with a soft wet towel...the covers are all waxed....like you said wax could cause issues with being slippery ....

The roof is textured, so doesn't get as slippery as a smooth fiberglass roof. Still need to be careful! I also wax mine. Going to use Aero Wash Wax All next time. Click image for larger version

Must be nice to store the coach in an airplane hanger.
