Are you my size Doc? LOL.
I would be too afraid of getting up there myself.

Ha! More like half your size. But you'll want to pass on what I said to anyone who climbs on your roof for you.

HAHA... Gotcha.

I will be sure to pass along your good advice. If I think of it in the spring, I'll have my wife check to see if our roof is a bit spongy there as well. I will also have to look for that lift kit we've been discussing in the other thread.

Have been on the roof of our x23j a couple of times. Walked around to check sealants and remove snow. Try to stay mainly in the edges. But this year, with all the snow we have been getting in the Boston area, after a couple of storms I didn't dare climb on the roof with all that snow. Removed snow using a plastic shovel and standing on a ladder. Got the majority of snow off before the 4th storm in 3 weeks hit. Have snow on there again but not as much. Didn't notice any type of sagging. Worse winter here in years! Makes me long all the more for camping weather.

While this link provides specifics to the 2015 lineup, it shows you can easily search the web for your specific year to obtain roof strengths and construction for Jayco models:

There you go, send the wife up on the roof instead of yourself. And have her walk backwards, as one other post warned against.

My wife read this...I'm now living in the TT!

I'm not sure "spongy" is the right term. When I think of spongy, I think of possible rotted areas. What I'm experiencing is more flex, like there is no support under front roof section.

I know what you mean Doc. It's good information and something we'll check out for sure. Wouldn't want to go thru the roof with a misplaced step if that's occurring.

As for sleeping in the TT, That is one reason I bought one, it's an upgrade from the garage. Just never, "EVER" say that to the DW.
