I am cleaning my coach and the top is like orange peel paint.  It also looks soiled in the pit likes.

 

Can tree sap or mildew/mold eat the finish? 

 

What can I clean it with? I have tried scrub brushes and RV cleaners and pressure washer at 100#. 

 

I feel like taking a floor scrubber to it.

I use 16 ounces of household bleach, 2 ounces of laundry detergent, to 1 gallon water. Scrub it on an already wet surface, then rinse and rinse and rinse with water. Works well on my awnings as well.

Is the gelcoat bubbling or is the roughness on the surface of the gelcoat?

After alot of input I now have a clean roof. Thanks to all of you who posted info for me to try.  I found Cacot's fence cleaner performed the best with the least work.  I tried six different cleaners on my last trip to clean. I hope I don't let it get that dirty again.

Ummmm, sounds like a plan.  When would you like to do mine? For a fee of course....  :-)

All  this because of my typo error.   So sorry.  It should have been Cabot's fence cleaner,  It's sparkling white and smooth as new.
