New X18D

I just picked up my new X18D and was wondering how does one perform maintance on the roof. Im guessing that it is not designed to support a persons weight but the reach is kinda far to get to some areas from a ladder

Welcome Jmonkey! Glad you are here.

You are supposed to be able to get on the roof to do maintenance. I generally dont stand on mine, but sit on my butt and move around spreading my weight around.

I do wash my every 3 or 4 months or so to get the grime off, but I dont go nuts trying to keep every spot gone.

Here is a good article I like about roof care - http://www.mydrv.net/roof_maintenance.htm

You are supposed to do some basic maintenance to keep up the warranty, and it is not too much work.

Enjoy the new camper!

WElcome to the Jayco Owners Forum JMonkey! I know our roof allows for someone Don's size to go up on roof to clean. We have a ladder attached to our tt in the back
