Off the subject. You stated you use 303 protestant.
Is this instead of or in addition to waxing??
I use 303 on spa cover and automotive and it works very well.
Getting ready for spring prep and hate the waxing routine.
Squinguy, since my roof is fiberglass (not painted), I only use 303 protectant on it. With 303 on the roof there is no need to wax after. I donít use it on the solar panels, since 303 provides UV protection. Otherwise it goes on everything on the roof and also my tires.

Also, I appreciate all the comments. Iím thinking i just had an angry bird on my roof that did the damage and then left for good. The security camera confirms that no birds have been on my roof for a week, so I guess it decided to move on. The sealant is still on backorder from Lichtsinn, but Iím hoping it comes in before our RV trip in June. Thanks!
Al

Many years ago when at a RV shop in Roanoke, VA I had a vultuer try to eat the caulking from around my shower skylight. He took a defensive stance toward me until I came at him over the ladder. I was bigger. lol A big cut mark from his beak could be seen in the caulking.

Could it be the shiny black is too reflective, mirror-like, and birds are seeing themselves and thinking itís a rival? Like they around our windows on our house.

Turkey Vultures! They love this stuff and in areas where they are in large numbers, they do a number on asphalt shingle roofs as well.

Birds eating Roof Caulking

While we were at The Everglades National Park, I had 6 Vultures looking pecking on my Roof. At first I though they were drinking the water cause it was first thing in the morning , but after chasing them away I went up on the roof and found where they were eating the self leveling sealant. That was the first time ever our Sunova is three yrs old .

Iím thinking it was a crow or vultures, as I have not seen a squirrel in the storage lot. Itís a large lot where the RVs park under solar panels, with no vegetation. I also donít think the sealant was too shiny as the roof was pretty dusty as it happened just before I cleaned it. Regardless, I am keeping the camera on the roof for the next few weeks to see if I can catch the scoundrel. :-) I was going to take it down but I heard a crow while I was there today.

Buzzards! These critters are protected! We camped near a pretty lake in southern NC and noted that many camper roofs were draped with fencing. Curious, we finally asked and were told they eat the rubber roofs. We chased them from our unit a few times as we heard them and were happy to leave to leave without damage.

Finally caught the crow on camera. He stayed on my neighbors roof and then flew away. I think I’ll keep the camera up indefinitely. It would have been fun to use the speaker or siren if he had stayed on the roof. :-)

this is one case where one could say "You could eat off that roof" and it would be true.
Is that shine from the 303 ? Fixing to do mine this week..

Thanks! Yes, I wash and then treat with 303 every 6 months. The roof is fiberglass, which has a bit of a seen to it.
