We recently received a question from a Club member in regard to conditioning an RV rubber roof. They wondered, I’ve already cleaned the roof, is conditioning actually necessary? According to RV expert Dave Solberg, the answer is a definitive yes. Rubber roofs are constantly exposed to the elements, particularly UV rays that can cause the membrane to dry out and turn to chalk. Cleaning the material does not prepare it to endure these often harsh conditions.

For that reason, Protect All makes a line of products that are specifically geared toward protecting whatever kind of roof you have. Whether your roof is EDPM or TPO, there’s a conditioner to match. Dave explains which product is meant for your RV rubber roof, and tells you how best to use it to ensure you get that ten-year warranty!

    What if your rubber roof material is the same color on the bottom?

    I posted a question yesterday about using petroleum distillates on the roof membrane? I'm waiting for an answer because I have read that you cannot use them on EDPM. And where did it go? I thought it would be here.
