I used Protect All wash. Since the surface is textured, I scrubbed a small area with a stiff brush and immediately wiped it dry with an old towel. Hard part is carrying a large bucket of water up the ladder to the roof.

Nice job, that is always a pain. A soon to be task for me as we are preparing to hit the road for a couple months. We have 4 solar panels to clean up there so it makes it a little tricky. I paid to have our rig washed in Laughlin, NV a few months back, they did such a good job on the roof, I can hardly top what they did. May gray has settled in over San Diego for a week or so, a good time to do ours, maybe tomorrow.

Did you use the touch up paint or something else?

The caulk that is over the screws that has black paint on it I've been using geo flex pro Rv black caulk and it looks good and is more durable than the dicor and doesn't require paint.

I found the easiest way to clean the roof, without using soap, is to simply go up on the roof on a rainy day, while standing, bare footed, use a nylon broom, and whisk back & forth in the direction of the grain. It does a fantastic job!! NOTE: mind your Pís and Qís while your up there!!!

Roof looks great.

Does anyone know what vent on the roof goes to the black tank? I'm not where my coach is at the moment but if I recall we have two vent caps correct? Or am I completely wrong and is there only one?

Thanks
Pat

Each tank, black and gray should have a vent pipe. in most cases I know of the black is down wind from the gray. This does make sense if you think about it. If you know the location of the tanks that helps as well, mine Gray in front of black same as the vent pipes...

I'm thinking because the tanks are literally next to one another in that area that they may start off with own vent pipe coming from tank and then Y into main stack pipe to roof.

For some reason I was thinking there were two on the roof but my gut was telling me there really might only be one.

I asked because I picked up one of them vent cyclone siphon vent caps. Had some residual odor a couple weeks ago when I de-winterized.

These things get great reviews some picked one up.

Thanks for the help
