Roof Maintenance

Hey guys, what's the normal procedures to keep your roof in good shape? Me and my nephew(he does most of the work ) wash the roof about once every 2 to 3 months. Outside of that, should I take to dealer every year to check the sealing? They check all the sealings on the roof like around the A/C, etc? We are about 6 months in on our new TT, should this be done around the Spring when we are about 1 year in? Whats the typical cost? Thanks

I did this tutorial about 2 years ago.

I was just up on my roof yesterday to wash and inspect. Everything seemed tight and good to go through the winter. Next big trip is FL panhandle in February.

I have the firm opinion that unless your uncle owns the RV dealership, and you have a good relationship with him, than you are better off doing whatever maintenance/repair on your RV that you possibly can. The work done at many stealerships is shoddy at best, and the warranty on the work is "out the door". You have more pride in your work and with youtube and this forum you will learn how to do things properly.

However, if you find you have to do something that you cannot do, then most on here will tell you to get an RV Mobile technician to do a repair item, one that is in the business of repair and NOT in sales.
