Cleaning a roof of a Roo

i'm a bigger guy and i wouldn't want to stand on top of the roof lol. But i am seeing some stains on the roof. What could i use to get the roof clean. I was thinking about gluing a bunch of magic erasers and a broom stick to reach the middle of the roof. But not sure if there is something else out there already.

I weigh about 300 so I didn’t want to stand on the roof of my Shamrock either. I bought a 10 foot step ladder and a long handled brush and cleaned my roof while standing on the ladder. Worked great!

Problem is - at some point - you're going to have to crawl around up there and reseal around your vents and AC unit.

Just recently purchased my 2011 Roo 21RS and emailed Forest River customer service first thing about getting on the roof. I'm 250# and also was concerned about damaging it.


They assured me that the roof was capable of supporting my weight without damage. Although still haven't had the chance to get up there and actually do anything, but plan on it the next in the not too distant future.

Try Murphy's Oil Soap ( the original which doesn't contain petroleum products.)

We found it's gentle on the roof while cutting through the grime on our trailers roof.

I only weigh 200, but use a 2' x 2' piece of 1/4" plywood to kneel on when I am on the roof of my TT. Probably not necessary, but I don't, like the idea of concentrating all of my weight on my knees, on the roof. Maybe a 1' x 3' piece would be better....who knows

Another vote for Murphy's Oil Soap. Rockwoods have a strong roof and use TPO, not EPDM membrane.

The first time I cleaned the roof my 19, I did it from a ladder. It was quite the work out. I'm 230# so I was cautious as well, but this winter I got on the roof and was very suprise at how sturdy it felt. I moved lightly (if that's possible) and found that getting on the roof is really the only way to thoroughly clean and inspect the roof. As a plus, it's much easier to do being on the roof as well.
