Another Question - Snow on Roof?

OK, my new Jay Feather 23RLSW is almost a month old. Looking wistfully out my window, waiting disconsolately for the arrival of spring and camping season, I see that snow has totally covered the AC unit and other equipment/vents on the roof. Should I be worried about melting snow getting into the trailer and causing problems?

Thanks,

Roger

Nope. Look at all your local dealers lots.

You should be ok. Like Grumpy said, look at the dealers. These RV's are built for the weather. Not saying snow piled on top is awesome but, I wouldn't worry too much about it. IT'LL BE GONE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!

It's disappearing even as we speak. 2 days ago we had a daytime HIGH temp of about 17. Today it's gonna hit 53, and it's raining steadily. Bye bye snow!

Thanks for the input, everyone!

Here in Montana

I worry more about ice build up along edges of roof, so I use a long handle car wash brush and just sweep off what I can reach around the gutters.
We just came out of snow cover today. Heading out with RV next Monday for California.

We live just south of you in Maryland... too much snow for us, so we are currently sitting just south of Tampa! They put wheels on these things for a reason... to get outta the snow!!!

Only time to worry about the snow on the roof like that would be if you were staying in it.The sewer vents would be covered and could get smelly pretty quick!

One would hope that if you are living in it that you will be heating it enough to melt snow around the vents!
