Just bought a Forest River Cougar 285 with Polar Pkg. This rig is a 9 out of 10. Really ,really nice. Price was great too. Here's the question. It has a PVC roof not the EPDM stuff. Called FR and they refuse to answer my question of ( is there any further , any kind of maintenance to maintain the roof ). Any one ? Thanks.

Cougar is a Keystone product. Keystone is owned by Thor, not Forest River. Maybe you talked to the wrong people?

Open Range uses pvc. No maintenance. Just wash it and check your seams.

You should have a warranty sheet in your large packet of instructions describing the type of roof material used. That sheet should have the info you seek
