I have always washed the roof with Dawn dish detergent. Before waxing tho because the dawn will remove the wax.

I use a mild car wash detergent twice yearly for the roof. I also wax the sides twice yearly but not at the same time. I hate waxing so I do part of it and take several attempts to get it done. I use a good car wax - right now Meguiars. I do NOT wax the rubber roof.

I wax over the decals also. Most auto waxes also inhibit UV rays, so I think it would reduce fading. Besides, that'd be a lot of work to avoid the decals.

I don't have a Jay Feather, but I wash and wax my Skylark 1-2 times per season with Dometic RV Wash N' Wax. It helps get off the bug splatters and helps make getting the road grime off after a trip.

Our trailer is stored inside so I don't wax it except the front cap where it oxidize and I used rubbing compound and Turtle cause that is what I have. I wash it when we return for camping or a trip. I use a Zap on the sides and roof.
