Roof coating

Getting my Jayco Jay Flight G2 23 FB ready to start rolling this year. It's an 08 I bought in June of last year from a dealer. It's in great shape, I just replaced the tires because they were 5 years old (not because they were worn or cracked) greased the wheel bearings and adjusted the brakes. My next thing is to coat the roof. I guess your suppose to do this every year, what is a good product to use on it?
Thanks for your help

Nope...do not need to do every year! You should inspect/clean your roof at least once a year. Caulk and patch where needed...Re-coat only if it needs it.

Depending on the material used on yours I was told to use Spic and Span on it 3-4 times a year and inspect all seams for possible leaks. The only coating reccommended was a paint like material that offered no sealing properties but just a new white look. The manufacturer said that it is common for the white to wear off and for black to come through. The painting is not mandatory and only for estectic purposes. They did not reccomend any type of treatments other than regualr cleanings and inspection.

When I bought my trailer, the tech told me to clean it regularly to keep any black streaks down and to check it twice a year for cracks, leaks, etc. and use Dicor self-leveling sealer as needed.

I think you will find that most things you buy to coat a rubber roof will peel off in chunks. Just wash it and take care of the sealing areas.

I am at 3 years and I was thinking about just doing a full run of Eternabond on all the seams as a preventative measure.

Our Prowler was 13 years old when the neighbor bought it. The trailer is now 18 years old and the rubber roof has only needed washing. It has not needed any other maintainance. The roof and seams are all good and it has been parked outside all this time. Just need to clean and inspect yearly.

Thanks for all the replies. looks like you saved me some work. I do wash the roof every time I wash the trailer, which is before I take it out, usually once a month. I'll get on top and check it for any signs of cracks.
