Also, I forgot - I've been trying this method to work on a few mold spots in my house bathroom and it is helping. Spray Vinegar & Tea Tree oil solution on the spot and wait 30 minutes. Then spray with a solution of water and baking soda and wait 30 minutes. After that you scrub the area with a tooth brush dipped in Hydrogen Peroxide and rinse. Might be too labor intensive for a roof though.

For getting stains out of clothes I use one part blue Dawn dishwashing soap and two parts hydrogen peroxide. I keep it in a spray bottle. This combination takes out just about every stain I've ever thrown at it. When you mix it the solution will be blue but after it sits overnight it even takes the color out of the dawn and it will be clear the next day. This may take the stains out of your roof as well but the peroxide may dry out the rubber membrane so I'm not sure it would be worth the risk.

There is a rubber paint you could just paint over the roof to cover the stains.

Instead of a toothbrush use a push broom with plastic bristles, basically the same thing in a much larger area package.

Yes! A good bristle broom, great idea of course! I second the Dawn dishwashing soap with the H2O2 as well. It is my stain remover for my laundry and many other things too. I have not tried it on mold yet but it works on so many other stains.

Just took me two weeks of reading this entire thread, a few hours a day....

The oil-less "air fryers" work great at cooking all sorts of things. They can be used outdoors, so won't heat up the RV. They heat up nearly instantly, so they take less time to cook than conventional methods. And they won't use up any propane. Food results are close to that of an actual fryer, but without the grease, or cleanup. Can cook anything that will fit in them. French fries are now super easy, and healthier. The only downside is they are a little on the large side.

You won't want to do this when it is hot out, but a convection microwave works the same as the air fryers, and it is less to carry along. My wife wanted one, and I told her she already had one in the convection oven. She tried it, and it works awesome.

Great! So I bought one for nothing? [emoticon]

Bump

Measurements - Don't bother telling me, I'm even more OCD than you imagine.

Frustrated when things we got sometimes didn't fit the way we hoped/expected, we recorded the measurements of everything in the trailer and put it in The Binder. And I do mean Everything!
One example, each cabinet door overall width and height as well as width and height of the recessed panel within the door, and their relative thicknesses.

WOW, I guess you are, does it really matter, as long as they work, unless you're going to replace one, or all of the doors?
