Paint question

Another dumb one from the noob. My new to me Sovereign was polished in 2004. At that time a white sealer type application was done to the top. When I purchased the trailer a can of Plasti-coat was included to redo the roof. Can I just reapply this over the existing coat? Is there something better? The trailer will be in a rainy place for its winter use and I need to address any such issues sooner than later. Thanks for your patience. Bill

Appreciate your rersponse. I saw that thread but was more questioning the need and timing to repaint an existing coating, the preparation to do so and the value or problems with applying a newer different treatment over the existing coating.

Some of the aftermarket coatings may chalk after awhile, this will cause white streaking, not good, this may be why they included the clear coat to act as a sealer.

For the first few seasons after getting our new Classic the white roof coating seemed to "bleed" off and down the sides of the trailer, turning to a chalk like substance when it dried. It's slowed down considerably the last few seasons.
I just scrub it down now at every Spring get ready. It doesn't seem to be waring thin but its something I keep my eye on.
