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.

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/
