How Screwed Am I?
We have a 2004 Jayco 23B and love it. We store it for the winter in a spot that unfortunately doesn't get much sun. It's also not very accessible for us. It's been a very cold and very snowy here in Michigan.
I finally got around to checking on it the other day and was dismayed to see that snow load appears to have caused some sag in the roof. It looks like the A/C and surrounding area is about an inch or so lower than the edges.
I was able to get up and rake off most of the snow up to the point where taking anything more off would probably start damaging the membrane as it's pretty packed down the rest of the way. Still, I got a significant amount off.
Now, I will say that in 2012 we had it inspected and my dealer found that the A/C unit had not been properly bolted (which, as I found here, was a fairly common problem) and that this had already pulled the roof down somewhat. Up to that point and since we had no leaks, so the problems from that didn't compromise the roof.
Today is the first day that we're supposed to go above freezing. Tomorrow will also be warmer, plus we're going to get some rain, which I'm not happy about as I expect this will create some soaking into the existing stuff up there, which will only add more weight. Still, after all that I should know for sure if this caused any damage.
Any thoughts? Anything I can do in the immediate term? If it does appear that it's damaged, I will have to call my insurance company, but I have no idea what I would do to get the thing out of where it is, as it's surrounded by a few feet of snow.
What a nightmare.
