I use a small 3' step ladder that gets me to the top of the slide.
Here is a link to the ladder:
Werner 2 ft. Aluminum Step Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating-150B - The Home Depot

300lb capacity for only $35. I purchased a broom with it as well. For $40 total I got something that I use to clean it off after all trips before we bring in the slide. Plus the step ladder is small and fits in my small pass through on my Palomino 201SS.

X2. Only our blower is a cordless rechargeable with the gutter kit. Also works great for blowing out the garage on HFS27.

We bought 2 toppers for our slides after I had to get the ladder out and broom off all the pine cones a d needles while it was raining, couldn't wait any longer for it to stop. They work great and help with the noise of falling acorns. Not hard to install my self with some help from my wife.

I use a plain old string cotton (wet) mop. Long handle so that most of the time I can clean it without the step ladder. Works good and even soaks up some water too if needed.

Cleaning debris off slide top

x4 - with the ladder in back not hard to climb up and make sure everything is cleaned off. Did it this morning before leaving the campsite and found the frisbee the kids were missing along with leaves, twigs, and acorns on the slides.

We had a few items that needed repair on our 2016 Rockwood Mini Lite. When it was in the shop, we had them install a slide topper.

Slide topper not a factory option, but I had my dealer install one and he met camping world price which is where I planned to take it after delivery had not the dealer come through. I always leave the awning open on the kitchen side enough to cover the slide and between the two have never had to remove debris.

Ours is a Toro. Lot of times in the fall the sites are real leafy too and this makes quick work of that too if you don't want to track all the crud into the TT
