Roof protection

I have a Georgetown 378Xl, 2012 and was wondering if anyone uses a sealant or protectant over their fiberglass roof? I ensure all caulked areas are maintained, but am curious to know if people coat their fiberglass with anything. Thanks in advance.

It's ultraviolet that eventually fades and chalks the gel coat of fiberglass. You can paint it when it gets too bad for your taste (epoxy or polyurethane paint is what is used in the marine world). Or use some form of protective coating with as much UV protection as you can get - Aerospace 303 is an example. Or wax it - the new ceramic "wax" is supposed to hold up longer than older waxes. I'll be trying the Turtle ceramic "wax" myself as soon as we get our last snowstorm.
