Detailed roof inspection twice a year...., but take a glance at it every time I clean the debris off my slide roof before closing it (use multi-poistion ladder).

Twice a year for me too. I can add twice a year to the poll options if you wish.

Since we camp in state parks with lots of trees, I too sweep off the slide before we close it. Take a look around while I'm up there especially sky light, fan and antenna mount areas.

Jayco appears to have done a good job on the caulk.

I check my roof for problems about four times a year; the slide roof I check for debris (which usually is present) each time before bringing it in.

I also check all the penetrations on the side of my trailer - windows, hatches, doors, lights, everything - about four times a year. The roof is the obvious focal point for leaks, but the side penetrations can cause just as much water damage.

I chose the once a month choice in the poll, as that response is closest to what I do.

Better add "Twice a Year", Crabman. I didn't vote either, because I check it a couple times a year.

I've never been on my roof. I inspect mine by standing on a ladder.

Well I put once a month and I'm in Brookings, Or. Right now and we had 3" of rain last night and I still had 2 leaks to deal with this AM. I'm always on my hands and knees up on top because I know what water can do to these things.
One leak is at the AC unit ( it's a 2010 ) and covered all winter and when I'm not camping. It sees about 19 weeks a year of sunshine.
The second leak ( I have a Hybrid ) is at the edge of the front curve of the roof. Now I know about this leak and have gone over every inch of that edge and just can't find it for love nor money.

OK, add twice a year, BUT if we've already voted we can't change, right?
