Product to use/avoid on roof - exterior

2008 Safari, 25 foot. Plan on giving it a good scrubbing this weekend. First one since obtaining. Thinking about just using a good scrubbing with Dawn Detergent to scrub off all the wax/dirt and using Rejex on exterior. (I've had great results using Rejex on other products). BUT....the white roof - not sure Rejex will/would be appropriate for it.

What do you all recommend? I've done some searching here but as of yet - have NO plans to polish it as many here have done (too lazy...).

I would not recommend Dawn or any other dish detergent for any vehicle (car,trailer, or boat) There are some rather harsh ingredients in dish detergent in order to get off baked on food. Your finish will be much better served with an automotive soap available from any auto parts store. It will be much easier on the coating and will work for the roof as well.

I personally use Griot's products on everything. (Not that they are the best,nor is this an endorsement. It's just my personal preference.) That includes my collector cars as well as the Airstream.
