2012 Jayflight 26RLS. Went up onto the roof to check out the a/c unit and was worried I might damage something walking up there. Is it safe to walk on the roof? Any areas I should avoid? I know I will be up there soon when I wash the trailer. I just want to make sure I don't step where I'm not supposed to.
Should be no issues. The plywood is thin, and only supported every 24 inches, so it flexes a lot. Also the membrane is thin and tears easily. I make sure my shoe's soles are clean. I also put the stabilizers down, and put a piece of cloth between the tt and ladder, as my ladder tore the membrane the first time I went up.
No problem walking on the roof of my fiver. I wear deck shoes and make sure nothing is caught in the soles.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.
It shouldn't damage your roof unless you have rocks stuck in the soles of your shoes or something like that. However, be careful. We sometimes sit or crawl on hands and knees when we get up there to clean the roof or check on things.
I was up on our TT roof a few times this last summer. I resealed the sky lights, vents and front cap with eternabond tape. I also put dicor on other areas. I just kept my shoes clean and watched how I twisted my feet on the rubber roof. The roof held me very well. I weight 235 pounds.
