Forecasted to get 2 inches of snow a day for three days here in AZ. Can't head south atm. New to this, and live in full time. Do I need to be getting an expensive snow brush now? Kinda scared to get on roof, don't really even know if you are supposed to. Was thinking of getting a ladder and climbing beside it brushing snow off. Temps are going to be like 40 high 18-20 low.

Thanks for advice.

The model is a 32 ft 2015 rockwood 2715vs travel trailer.

Odds are it will melt off from the heat loss and outside air temp.

Since you live in it full time, keeping it warm will probably keep it melted off enough that you won't have to worry about it. I'd just keep an eye on it, but I think you'll be fine.

When they give you measurements in yards you may get concerned, but a few inches will be like extra insulation.

Unless you have 18"+ of "heavy" snow, you have nothing to worry about. 6" of snow over 3 days is nothing.
