New with fiberglass roof questions

Hi there I'm new to this site. We have an 06 Peterson Exceland it has a fiberglass roof. Well sides, front and back too. One of the reasons we liked it so much. Anyway the Mr got noticing that there's a couple small cracks in the roof. Doesn't appear to be any damages or leaking yet. But I'm trying to find out what kind of care we should take. We want to do this right the first time. And we are trying to find out more about this shine on product for bringing the luster back to fiberglass. Some say zep floor coat is just as good if not better. We don't want a yellowing or flaking.
Thanks in advance as I'm sure I'll be asking a ton of questions. Lol trying to find more people familiar with or who have parts for Peterson since they shut their doors as we just found them. Day nabbit. We are fairly new to RVing in general. We have camping down, but RVing is different. More maintenance haha

Anyway nice meeting you and thanks.

Nice LEDs, but what could they possibly have to do with the thread?

Depending on the cracks they could be an issue in the future. If they are on the roof they will be hard to see for the average on looker. I have found a good product that surprised me - Flexseal - the late night television product. It comes in different colors, in spray cans and in different sized dip cans. I found the white dip can to be very hearty stuff. It must be applied to a very clean surface - lightly sanded is best and cleaned is best. I have used the black spray can on my wheel houses - has yet to chip after 20K+ miles.
