I use Spic and Span. Works good and doesn't strip wax. Also Dawn is recommended. Only concern with Dawn was that it might strip wax on sides as it is rinsed off of roof.

Good advice by Mark Polk here:
Polk's Top 7 Steps to Maintain a Rubber RV Roof

Key point seem to be to NEVER use any cleaners or conditioners that contain petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives or citrus ingredients. Comet and Spic & Span seem to be acceptable but I thought they would be considered harsh abrasives .. go figure!
Oh, and spray down the walls after you have finished the roof as some some soap and roof crap will likely need rinsing off your nice shiny custom paint!

The Spic and Span is liquid form not a powder abrasive.

I also heard avoid anything with citris, as it attracts birds that will peck holes in the roof.
