For coating, I recommend the DICOR (http://www.dicor.com/) line of products. Its all the techs use here in the shop, and owners have used the re-coating products with good results, but it is pricey.. (about $500 bucks for a 30 foot camper)

Cleaners for roofs, we use Simple Green, and Chemco all in one RV cleaner for the rest.

I would stay away from the Pro-Tec rubber roof care system. It coats and does a great job on the roof for protecting it, but leaves a "sticky" film that collects dust and dirt. When it rains, the film runs down the sides of the camper.

Hate to say it, but I tried a lot of the expensive cleaners and found Simple Green to work the best. It works great straight on the aluminum sides too. Takes the streaks off in seconds

spic- n -span for cleaning two times a year . Look for cracks around vents,sky light ,ect ..if there is any use self leveling sealant,like Dicor . There is other products out there . And if you see the black coming through the roof ,that means you protection of the membrane is wearing off you will need to recoat it . YOU WILL NEED TO KNOWN WHAT TYPE OF ROOF YOU HAVE . Then look for coating for it . There is so many different types for coating so BE AWARE of what your looking for. I use Dicor self leveling sealant and henrys coating but that's for my roof . And remember your roof is a very important part of you camper keep it clean and water tight and you will have a damage free camper. PS the coating protects the rubber roof and cools the camper by 20 degrees.

You should know the type of roof when selecting a sealant like Dicor. Write ups suggest that if you have an Alpha roof, you need to use a different product. The Jury is still out if this is accurate or not, or if it has warranty implications. Alpha makes their own self leveling roof product.

From Di-Cor's Website -

CLEANING MOLD AND/OR MILDEW FROM RUBBER ROOFING MATERIALS NEEDED:

BUCKET OF WATER
SPONGE
MEDIUM BRISTLE BRUSH
TILEX BATHROOM CLEANER

There are no ingredients in EPDM rubber roofing that will promote the growth of mold and/or mildew. Atmospheric dirt, shade, sun, humidity and moisture are some of the contributing factors that form mold and/or mildew. Regular cleaning of your rubber roof will help prevent mold and/or mildew from forming on the EPDM roof. Dicor recommends that you wash your roof an average of 3-4 times a year using a non-abrasive cleaner and a medium plastic bristle brush. Mold and/or mildew on your EPDM roof is simply a parasite that attaches itself to the roof and grows – similar to bathroom mold that grows in your shower. It does not attack the membrane but is unsightly and if allowed to grow will discolor the roof completely and may become a stain that cannot be removed.

Please note, the removal of mold and/or mildew is not a job to be rushed. Allow ample time to complete the job and follow instructions carefully. Although the products mentioned will not harm your roof, if you do not follow the instructions, other areas could be affected.

Tilex is a bathroom cleaner that can be purchased at many grocery stores or discount stores. Tilex contains strong chemicals. Please read the label thoroughly. Tilex should not come in contact with painted or aluminum surfaces. If it drips over the sidewalls or comes in contact with painted or aluminum surfaces, wipe immediately with a damp sponge.

WORK WITH A SMALL AREA in order to maintain control. Spray a small area approximately 2'x2' with the Tilex. Allow the Tilex to remain on the roof for 3-10 minutes per area. Scrub with a medium bristle brush. After scrubbing, wipe with a damp sponge.

When finished with whatever time frame you intend to spend on the roof (whether you do the entire roof or just a portion) rinse the roof thoroughly with a garden hose. BE SURE TO RINSE WINDOWS AND SIDEWALLS ALSO.

Most often one application is all that is needed to alleviate the problem. Depending on the amount of mold and/or mildew and the length of time growing, more than one application may be necessary.

Follow this procedure with the Dicor Roof Gard (RP-RG320S) protectant.

Not seeing where you have told us the type of roof you have.....

Never mind, this post is months old now....... If you come back, give us an update

granular spic an span, I get it from amazon because it is hard to find. Do it twice a year. It does not remove the black spots, but my dealer said not to worry about them.

has anyone used Dicor Roof-Gard protectant?

Thinking about buying some $31 a gallon. Specifically for current Jayco roof material. I read similar to spray on dashboard protectors you can buy anywhere but specifically for our rubber roof material.

Dicor cleaner and a medium bristle brush worked on our 2013 Puma. Will use the same on our 2018 Jayco Fiver..
