Anyone have a Roof Maintenance Checklist?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a list of what to do/check/clean/lube on the roof of our Ollies? I'll be up there replacing the operator mechanism on the MaxxFan & want to tackle everything else while there. We've had the camper two years and have never been up there. 

Thanks!

Chris

I'd just do a thorough cleaning and check for any caulking that may be deteriorated.  You might also take off the AC cover to see if there are leaves or anything that needs to be cleaned out.

I’m on the roof at least several times a year, if I’m washing I start with the roof.  Like Sherry, the roof is waxed when the trailer is waxed, a couple of times a year.  I wash with the maxxfan cover open to get the area that is covered when it is closed.  I check the AC to ensure no varmints have taken up residence up there.  I also check the caulking around the fans and vent pipe.  Washing includes under the solar panels.  I like to raise the front so the rinse water flows off the roof and solar panels.  Mike

If you have solar, it makes access to the roof  sooooo much easier if you make some panel extension arms, so you can tilt it way up and then slide yourself around on a soft foam camping pad..... https://olivertraveltrailers.com/forums/topic/2791-how-to-solar-panel-extension-arms/

Thank you all. We have neglected our gal but with all this time on our hands, that's going to change.
