House washer stood on camper roof, is everything ok?

someone came to wash our house, and after confirming with Escape that it's safe to use the bleach and chemical they use, we agreed to let them wash the camper. I just ran out yelling like a crazy person bc the guy climbed on top of the camper. Luckily he's not a big guy and was only up there briefly, but please tell me if everything's going to be ok, and what I should look for if it's not!

I have been on top of my 5.0TA a few times. Once there were two of us replacing the A/C. Always careful though and keeping nearer the edge.

I would never let someone like your washer go on the roof though.

A quick inspection of the roof looking for hairline cracks would be something you might do. I would be willing to bet that everything is just fine though. Still, checking is cheap insurance.
