Default Roof maintenance

Is there any maintenance on fiberglass roof other than sealing around vents,etc?
Any paint or other coatings needed?

gbarngrover, I have been told that roof coatings are a waste of time and money. Keep the roof clean by using a not too high pressure washer once a year and inspect the seals around the seams and use good sealant material when necessary. I have had good luck so far..........

I get up on top of my coach at least once a year and check for cracks on the caulking. If I see any cracks I clean it with lacquer thinner and apply some self leveling Dicor. Fact I done that today since we are headed to Washingto state and it might rain up there. Other then that I just wash the top every so often with a electric power washer and a push brush. They say a person should wax the top also, but I never have.
