Keep it Clean

The best advice for keeping your RV’s roof in great shape is to prevent any debris from sitting on it too long. You can do this by regularly getting up there and cleaning it away with a broom or your hands, but it’s also a good idea to avoid parking under trees. Either way, keeping leaves and sticks from piling up will protect the sealant on your roof and give it a longer life.

Use Gentle Cleaners

Another good rule of thumb is to wash your RV’s roof with only water. Certain types of cleaners, including anything with citrus ingredients, can severely damage the seal on your RV’s roof or any rubbed parts. You’ll want to use a soft rag and plenty of water on troublesome spots and consult with your RV dealer before using any other cleaning solutions to ensure you don’t damage the materials.

Reseal Problem Spots

Lastly, you’ll want to inspect the seams and seals around your AC unit and all of the sides of your roof regularly. Keeping an eye on these spots can help to prevent expensive water damage in the long run. If you notice anywhere on your roof that the seams appear to be popping or water is pooling, call our RV service department, and we’ll help to get your roof repaired in no time!
