Always check the seals for fractures remember with an RV WATER is your enemy.
Use the same products and so does a local detailer. More resale and just pride in your equipment. Why wouldn't you do all you can to protect your investment?

I clean and put EPDM roof protectant on it as well as wash/wax the entire rig every six months. Now the truth: It is done every six months, but I don't do it. Vertigo problem so no roof for me and too lazy for the waxing. Fortunately I have a couple of locals guys that do it for a reasonable price. The wax guy does my truck also.

Well, you are supposed to inspect your roof, caulking, seals... Unless your have your dealer do that, you might as well wash your rig.
