Walking On 24R Roof

Is there a recommended way to walk on a 24R roof to install a cover over the RV for storage? Is it best not to walk on the roof?

You can walk on the roof. I am not to steady on my feet so I use good quality knee pads and crawl around up there. The roof is very strong and I have not had any problems. Been up there many times.

I concur, just don't use Home Depot brand Husky knee pads with slick plastic caps on them!

I was up last week to replace the king TV antennae I broke under a tree on cape Hatteras. I thought the limb would give way but the plastic did first. $150 lesson. I'm thinking of mounting a couple of forward and rear facing cameras up there and tie them to the rear camera. Any thoughts. That way I can see clearance much better.

Walking on the roof

Nothing wrong with walking on the roof.....just watch where you're stepping. Also,,,,,if you feel a soft spot, avoid stepping there. It could be a weakness in the superstructure of the roof or a rot-spot from water leaks.

So if a cover voids the full body paint warranty do you recommend not covering it during the winter?
