2010 Shamrock Hybrid 19 Roof care question

2010 shamrock hybrid 19 TT.
I'm wanting to clean and protect my roof-
This is my first TT after having a pop up camper.
I plan on using Camco #41451 cleaner and protectant .
I watched a video from camco and the guy is standing on top of his RV doing this.
Here's my question- should i lay on top my my TT or put some smooth plywood down carefully on top to support my body on the roof? I can't imagine that the roof will support an averaged weight man will it?
Can anyone provide me some advise on the care of my roof and if I'm able to get up on my roof please.
thank you

Being 6' 8" I would qualify as "above average weight" and I wash my Roo's roof by walking on it. If you look in the brochure they show 3 or 4 guys up there working on one in the factory. I have noticed a few "seams" where the roof will flex when I step in that spot so I try to avoid stepping there. Biggest thing is to be careful of where you are walking. As you are cleaning and backing up to start the next spot, its easy to forget where you are - don't want to put your foot through a skylight or a vent. So watch behind you.

Welcome to the forum chipmy. While you're up on the roof check all caulking too.

i also use a piece of plywood on top of my Roo's roof. but stay off the front and back part of the roof, where the caps are not really part of the roof but are flexible "plastic" and will break or crack if you step on them.

Your roof can be walked on. I wouldn't dance up there, but walking is fine.

X2 on checking your seams and recaulking as necessary.
