I use a 50/50 mix of Clorox and water. Spray on with an inexpensive plastic pump sprayer. Check the roof. Mildew likes the caulking around the fans, AC and skylite.

Forgot to add, I wash it off with a car wash brush and a bucket with autowash. Rinse with a hose.

Mine is a 2002 and it has not hurt the clear coat, The 50/50 mix is mild enough for the paint.

I do it about once every couple years, I use Walbernize on on the surfaces twice a year. This will help hold down on the mildew also.
