Remove snow?

Hello all

This has probably been discussed before. If so please accept my apologies.

Should I be removing the snow from the roof of my x17z hybrid trailer. It has accumulated a fair amount however it is light snow at this point.

What do you do when you get snow on your roof?

Thanks

yes, I would remove the snow. eventually with the freeze thaw cycles the bottom layer will turn to ice and then good luck getting that off!! usually a broom works for me and if it is really light the rv brush. just use caution when doing it not to break a dome cover or vent or something as they get a little brittle in the cold.

I let it sit until it melts and never had a problem. It's very easy to damage your roof while removing snow. Brushing some off the top is okay, but I wouldn't get anywhere near that roof liner.

Put a big tilt on the trailer and LEAVE IT ALONE.. clearing the snow off means you stand a very big chance of damaging the roof material.. I have never yet seen a dealer clear the roof of an RV off..
