You should get up there at least once or twice a week to clean it off. Otherwise these stuff falling and sitting on the roof, clogging the gutters, and eventually rotting away on the top. If you don’t have time to clean regularly or leave here and won't be back until a few months,in this case,you need a rv cover to keep environmental fallout from coming down on your motorhome, travel trailer or camper trailer, especially in cold winter to prolong the RV finish. When in spring,you could remove the cover and your RV is as clean as when you put it away.
