Question Mobile home roof...rusted

My metal mobile home roof has rust streaks. They look like stripes down the roof. This is the first MH I have owned so I'm clueless here.
Is it safe to climb onto the roof? Should I clean up the rust with CLR, Naval Jelly, Rustoleum or something else? Do I need to paint the roof or seal it in some way?
Any advice would be extremely helpful. And if you happen to have a ladder I could borrow... Thanks!

hi
NEVER WALK ON MOBILE ROOF WITHOUT FIRST PLACING STRIPS OF 3/4 IN PLYWOOD AS PATHWAY
Just rent pressure washer and buy at HD the cleanning product for the pressure washer.
Next when dry you could repaint the roof with aluminium paint or the rubber white roofing compound.

good luck

Thanks a bunch... I never thought of a pressure washer. I'm sure I can find some plywood somewhere.
