I'm old school when it comes to cleaning the roof, I use rain, and occasionally some snow, if it gets brushed, it's from the low trees in the campground

TommyBoy75: This looks like a Protect All ad. I think I am in Flyrotor's camp on this one!

I have a lot of oak leaves dropping on my trailer. No way the roof or the awning will stay totally clean.

The caulk requires periodic (up to 4 times a year depending upon whom you ask) inspection as it dries out and separates. Eternabond is rated for 20 years if installed correctly.

It won't help or prevent streaks though... that is the natural chalking of the rubber roof.
Can you explain the overhang part. Do you remove the trim thn tape it and install the side trim back around the Roof?

I assume you mean the piece of trim that covers the screws that hold the gutters in place and the top piece of siding. No, I didn't want to dump and water behind that piece of trim. The Eternabond is wrapped over the side of the roof and attached to the black plastic trim piece. I can still pop the trim out of the track from the bottom and access the screws if I need to though.
