I have always used a sponge, a little spic and spanand a whole lot of elbow grease to clean my roof. I am too old andtired to use the sponge approach anymore. What type of brush do you guys use? Obviously it is mounted to a pole (I have had enough of crawling around on my hands and knees) but how stiff should it be? A guy once showed me the one he used and it was an "acid brush". It seemed awfully stiff to me. I did try one like you would use to wash the sides of the camper once and it was obviously way too soft. I guess I am wondering if it is possible to damage the roof by using too stiff of a brush.

My wife (who likes heights better than me) uses the auto/RV boom brush we got at Costco. Works well.

I use one of these from CW. It has stiffer bristles than the one I use for the washing the rest of the rig. The stiffer bristles do a good job of scrubbing with out having to apply a whole lot of pressure.

I have a soft bristle brush that attaches to the hose for cleaning the sides of the trailer. For the roof I just use my garage broom, the bristles are a little stiffer and it does a good job.

I subcontract my roof cleaning to the same neighborhood kid that washes the rest of the rig. He uses a garage broom and Spic-n-Span and does the whole shebang for $30.

No, I will not give you his phone number.

I spent $30 on advil for my aching back the day after I washed my rig!!!!



Actually I bought a brush head at Home Depot and then when I went to wash the roof I pulled out the spic & span and a brand new brush fell out of the cabinet. I must have boughtit last fall and I sat it on top of the spic & span so I would find it when I went to wash the roof. The one that fell on me was a "deck brush" with a natural looking fiber bristle. I opted to use it instead of the new one I had just bought. I just need to find me a $30 neighbor kid!
