Washed my rubber roof also last week on Sat. scrub brush and Wesleys White Wall Cleaner and a bucket of soap water. Also wife opened roof vents and I cleaned the inside of the vents with a sponge and towel after washing the roof. After the roof dried I put 303 Protectant on the rubber roof, I hope this will keep some of the black streaks from appearing. So far so good, but its only been one week.

We wash ours every few months. Once you get it clean it is easy to keep clean. We like to have the sky lights clean when we camp. The whiter you can keep the roof the easier it will be to keep cool in the summer. Yes we walk on the roof too. We use a long handle window brush and car wash soap & wax. Pushing the brush on the rubber will wear you out.

I wash my roof with the same stuff I use on the sides. I did pick up some stuff from CW specially made for roofs. Going to try that out. I do get up on the roof and do it with a scrub brush on a handle, I just make sure I am standing along the edge, or on a couple of trusses.

As far as helping with the black streaks, I havea small gutter that runs along the roof, I have placed wooded clothespins on the drain spouts at the ends. The wooden clothespin will wick the water further away from the side of the camper, thereby reducing the possibility for a black streak.

BTW, the clothespins will stay onthe camper up to 60 mph, that is as fast as I have tested them.
