First off it is Not a Big deal,the stack goes into your Black or Gray tank so rain will Not matter! Take the New Cover with you when you go Camping or to a Rally there is "Always Help"! A offer to Pay,a Big Thanks,or a Cold Beverage should cover the Labor! Youroo!!

Go down to Dollar General and buy 30 helium balloons and tie them to your belt and go to work. Just kidding I'm a big fellow myself and I go up when ever need arises with no problems.

My weight is cyclical.

In the winter I get larger and in the summer I get thinner. Must have to do with farming and eating or vice-versa.

Look under Your Notifications UPPER right side of the forum in case you missed it.
I saw. Thank you! You are about an hour away from me. I don't want to impose on you. Let me wait and see about trying it myself. If I feel its a bad idea once I get up there, I'll contact you when I'm camping closer to your location sometime this summer.

Simple. Use some plywood strips, 4'x2' or whatever to lay on top of the roof in planks to get to where you need to work. That will distribute the weight and you will have no problems. Think in terms of pressure on any given point where you put your foot, multiply the area and pressure is reduced on any one point. I've done that before, though I'm light, in IFFY roofing situations. It works.

Let me know if you have finished your roof project. I don't own a RV yet, but weigh 200 lbs., and pretty handy, and live in Northern KY. too.

I weigh 185 and have been on my roof many times. I would be more concerned about the ladder. I would not trust mine over about 200. They aren't made with the strongest of tubing and aren't attached the best.

I am 6' and 280 #.
My ladder and roof hold me just fine.

Getting ready to replace a vent with a second AC on the TH 5er in the garage area.
I'm 240, my son is 225 and the AC is 85. We both have to be up there to install the unit. Wish us luck.
