2014 Rushmore Alpha-Ply roof - how to clean ?

We have a 2014 Rushmore Franklin and I would like to know what folks are using to clean their Alpha-Ply roof. This membrane is only about a dime thick and seems rather delicate.
Anyone have experience with this new roof product and how to clean,
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Lloyd will chime in and tell you about a product named Solvit. It doesn't strip the wax or finish off the sides of the rv. Just got some myself. Worked great on cleaning up my truck inside and out.
!-800-276-8102 no website.

By the way, the roof manufacturer does not recommend any roof treatment other than cleaning it.

Reason I haven't said any thing is I'm not sure just what an Alpha-Ply roof is.
I don't know if it's the same as mine or not, or just a new name for the same product??????

According to CR's website, they use Alpha Ply on the Rushmore, Carriage and Cameo rv's

I can see I'm going to have to bone up on this roof business
Thanks for the leg work.

My Sunset Trail Reserve has an Alpha Ply roof. According to the literature that came with the TT they suggest Spic n' Span for cleaning. Unfortunately I can't find that product in Canada.
