Give the roof a spray over with Wet & Forget... then you'll never need to wash it. Truly. I haven't had to do mine for almost 18 months and it still looks clean when I open the curtains :LOL:

Oh and it worked wonders on the patio! Twice a year I used to have to scrub my patio to get rid of the black slime... I tried everything from proprietary patio cleaners to a pressure washer to bleach! Nothing really worked until this stuff - it's like magic. It doesn't happen instantly... it took a couple of months after I sprayed it before I noticed how bright and clean it was getting.

I tried that stuff. Nothing. No difference at all. It worked on the fence, pavement and the scooter rack but nothing works on the roof. I think its because the roof is not smooth and its just ingrained.

Old van had a telescopic ladder. But this one has a raised bed. So we climb up and out through the roof skylight.

Going to order that wet and forget. Ty for tip

Jenny, ordered it. Question, is it ok on solar panels too?

If you clean it what do you use to get up there.
I'm thinking of a telescopic ladder.

What do you use?
Telescopic ladders are excellent in many ways, but my goodness, they're heavy! Try one for weight before buying.

My experience is that wet and forget needs re-doing after 6 to 9 months. Some years it goes longer because it can, but it never lasts me 18 months.

Some cleaning material may degrade rubber seals or mastic on roof TFR might do it that is used on vehicles - i use broom / old plastic card/plastic scraper and bucket of caravan cleaner for harder bits gets most of it easily - but that is my choice

If you read the blurb at the bottom of the Amazon page, it says there's nothing harmful in it and is safe on glass, so my guess would be yes but don't hold me to that!
Someone - I think it might have been @RoaminRog - contacted the company and they said it would be fine. There was a whole thread about it on Motorhomer... I'll see if I can find it and check what was said :)

Oh that's bad luck H :( I've found mine just comes up sparkling again every time it rains and reactivates... the patio too. I was expecting to have to do it again within a year but it just hasn't needed it yet. Maybe it helps that there are no trees or anything near my drive?

My problem is I'm about 10 stone over the the roof weight limit. Crap modern vans.
