I knew what you asked and my answer still is......
Use Spic and Spam and a scrub brush.
Its just dirt buildup so clean it accordingly.

I don't think I'd put any Spam on my roof! I'm sure it will attract all kinds of carnivorous animals.

Besides, after three tours in Vietnam I will NEVER allow Spam in my home.

For normal cleaning:

Rinse the roof with clean water to remove any loose dirt or debris.
Use a medium bristle brush and scrub the entire roof with a concentrated rubber roof cleaner.
Use a medium bristle brush and scrub the entire roof with the cleaner mixed with water or soap and water.
Rinse thoughly with clean water to avoid residue build-up on the roof or sidewalls.
Clean lap sealant around roof mounted accessories with a mild soap; if additional. cleaning is needed wipe dirt build-up with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits.
If additional UV protection is desired, apply a Rubber Roof Protectant immediately after cleaning.

It is a preservative and the grease will last forever.

One thing for sure. TSP works really good. But do not get it on your windows. It will etch them.

I think you mean "SPIC "n" SPAN". Maybe Spic and Span. Definately not Spam. But you knew that, right? And yeah, it works great.

I'm in the same boat, dicor sealant looks brown due to dirt build up, so purchase Thetford RV Rubber Roof cleaner to do the whole roof this spring.

I've used Mineral Spirits to clean the the dicor and it works well, just want to be careful not to contact the roof membrane.

Dicor 501LSW Self-Leveling White works well to touch up any cracks. Note that 501LSD labled Dove (Bright White) is really a light gray in color.
