Roof Walking

I bought a 263bhxl with a slideout. I was told that I could walk on the roof to clean it the day I bought it.. Just the other day, I was told by a service person that I could not walk on it. Any Ideas? Anybody have this problem?

Really soft brush, ladder off to the side, Mild soap,Dawn is a good choice, and clean away,Be sure to check all the sealant for cracks and repair as needed.

Roof Walking...

...can't put my eyes on it right now, but I did receive a related (answer to email inquiry) reply from a factory tech regarding walking on my Apex roof -- he advised that it was "stressed for 200 lbs." when leaving the factory, but that they can't "guarantee" since they have no way of knowing what condition it may be after being used. In any event, I weigh in at a whopping 145 & have walked on it many times for cleaning and maintenance -- no problems. It did not come with a ladder. FWIW.
