How do you care for a vinyl roof. I have always had rubber roofs on my other RV's. I understand that the roof on the Redwood is vinyl. Is this correct?

It's my understanding, you wash it with a soft brush every once in a while and check the calking.

One thing I did read was "DO NOT" use any of the typical Rubber Roof cleaners and such.

</span>[/b]<b style="text-align: center; ">CLEANING AND MAINTAINING THE ALPHA SYSTEMS ROOF
MEMBRANE</span>[/b]

</span>Proper care and maintenance of your Alpha Systems roof
membrane is critical for years of trouble-free performance. Normal maintenance
is simple, easy and requires no special materials.</span>

Periodic cleaning (three to four times per year) is
the primary maintenance required.
Alpha Systems recommends using a non-abrasive household cleaner, such as
Top Job or Spic-N-Span, and a medium-bristled scrub brush. Do not use any harsh or highly-abrasive
products during cleaning. When
finished cleaning, remember to thoroughly
rinse the roof and sidewalls in order to remove any soap residue and to prevent
streaking. CARE SHOULD BE EXERCISED WHEN WORKING ON
TOP OF YOUR UNIT! THE ROOF MAY
BECOME SLIPPERY WHEN WET.
</span>

DO NOT USE
ACETONE, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCTS CONTAINING PETROLEUM DISTILLATES, ON THE ALPHA
SYSTEMS ROOF MEMBRANE. USE OF
THESE PRODUCTS WILL DAMAGE THE MEMBRANE.</span>
</span>

Periodic inspection of the roof, during cleaning, is
highly recommended. Check the membrane for signs of damage.</span> </span>Check the caulk/lap sealant used in all
termination areas, and around all accessories and fasteners, for signs of
cracking or voids.</span>

The roof membrane can be cut or punctured by sharp
objects. Caution should be used when placing any articles on the roof. If damage does occur, the membrane can
usually be patched.</span>

Alpha's membrane is quite inert and will resist
weathering well. It does not
require the periodic application of products to protect it from ultra-violet
light or ozone. In fact, these
products can often cause damage to the roof membrane. </span>

If you have any questions,
please contact Alpha Systems at 574-295-5206</span>
</span>Dan</span>
