Is it safe to walk on slide-out roof?

I'd like to get onto the roof of my slider for a repair but not sure whether it can take the weight (195#)

Never done it and I would not even consider it.

I would use a ladder or scaffolding or at least stand on the trailer's roof.

If you absolutely have to get on it, I would definitely put some support under the slide and use a large pc of plywood on the slide roof. I would try to do the repairs from a ladder or the main roof tho.

A couple of years ago I saw a man standing on his slideout trimming a large tree branch. This has been the only time I've seen anyone standing on a slideout. There is no way I would risk damaging the slide by standing on it. NO WAY!

"use a large pc of plywood on the slide roof"
============================
I was going to suggest that, but then thought about the potential for ripping the 'rubber' roof just trying to get the plywood up there!
And believe me, I speak from experience, being so careful that I ended up screwing up something else! DOH!
