I reach out and sweep the slides while standing on the main roof. While the slides can probably handle my 180lbs, I just don't feel comfortable standing on them.

To date, I go up on the roof with a push broom and clean off our four slides from topside.

Just wondering if you guys feel flexing at all up there. I do and it kind of worries me a bit. Don't want to hear a sudden crack and creating a custom skylight.

Very slight, in between the trusses. Nothing to worry about unless your roof has gotten wet underneath the rubber or fiberglass.

I do feel some flexing. I go about 230lbs right now so I do try to "walk easy" when I am topside, but I also realize the roof can handle quite a lot more than my bodyweight.

Sweeping my slide from my roof is part of my camp breakdown routine.

I try to minimize my time on the roof. But when I do get up there, it's usually to wash it, meaning it will be wet. So, I always wear my deck shoes so I won't slip on the wet surface. They also minimize damage. I never wear flip flops or bare feet. That would likely be ruled a suicide.

After climbing up on the roof a couple of times to sweep the slide out we invested in a slide awning. Great move. Keeps water and junque off of the slide and as someone mentioned a few pages back, it's fun to watch all the stuff fall off as the slide rolls in.

A rear ladder was on my must have list for my third camper. It takes an 8' step ladder to use the leaf blower and I can climb up and sweep it by the time I drag out the ladder and blower at home. We have the same camper, I climb on mine whenever I need to, it won't hurt it. Try to walk on the framing where you can but you're not going to do any damage if you're careful. Good time to look at seals while you're up there too.

Now days, I don't have any business of roofs... Glad I purchased three Toppers for the slides. A ladder and a blower will have to do.
