Slideout cleaning

Anyone out there know the best way, besides buying a slideout cover, to clean the slideout top before pulling it back in. I notice we have some debris on it when I look on top after pulling it in. Any suggestions out there?

That's the idea I was thinking, just hate putting something else in the storage compartment!

I climb up on the rear ladder of the trailer and use the broom to sweep the slides off prior to closing them. Just a good habbit to prevent damage.

After just purchasing my first ever tt with a slide, I was trying to Figure this out as well. I do not want to haul a step ladder around nor do I have a built in ladder. So I am going to put a couple bends in some 1/2" emt conduct and attach out to the broom head we already have with us. I won't be able to see what I am doing, but with a little practice, should be able to sweep off the slideout safely from the ground.

Because of space limitations, I purchased a 12ft telescoping ladder. Got mine through Sam's Club, but they are available elsewhere. Absolutely love it. Usually the kids will go up on the roof and sweep it off for me. Gives them a little responsibility, too. They are a little pricey (kids and the ladder), but that's what we do, isn't it...pay for convenience

Or just install a slide out awning! I just took my Freedom Express for first trip this weekend. Slide awning was really appreciated because we wanted to get out of camp site quickly (ran late on check-out time). It looks cool too.
