Roof question

I have an 08 JayFlight G2 23FB. I bought it a year ago and it is like new condition. I bought some spray to treat the roof which I guess should be done once a year. Anyway, I was on my knees applying the stuff and every so often I would head a cracking or poping sound when I moved around, didn't see any cracks in the roof material just wondering if this is normal.

Without hearing the noise or seeing it i'd hate to say don't worry. However if you don't see anything visibly wrong, or see any depressions, or feel any soft spots, i dont think i'r worry about it too much.

Not to get to personal but how much weight are you putting on the roof?

190 lbs. I was on my knees as I was washing the roof, like I said in the other post, I did hear some noise but didn't see any cracking or giving, maybe the insulation under the roof was making the noise.

Your rubber roof should be cleaned twice a year. I wouldn't kneel on your roof, I would only stand to distribute the weight. Make sure you check all of your calking before cleaning. If any starts to show a crack use self leveling caulking, clean the area first with mineral spirits to get good adhesion. If any caulking is peeling up you need to remove it before applying new caulking. A good one step cleaning product is http://www.amazon.com/B-E-S-T-55048-.../dp/B002EVWDNU. A better two step process is http://www.amazon.com/BIO-KLEEN-PROD...sr=1-1-catcorr and http://www.amazon.com/BIO-KLEEN-PROD...6921209&sr=1-1. The cleaner can also be used on your awnings, carpet and upholstery. You can also use the protectant on your ac, frig and vent covers as well as your tires.

Cleaned and treated our last weekend. Used Protect All the worst was getting it rinsed (anyone have any tips) the dirt came off well but left some residue. I worked from the side my dw worked down the center, she is a whole lot lighter than I am. The sealer worked well and roof looked great. I have not got an answer how often we will have to treat since the trailer is indoors 48 weeks out of the year.
