Snow pack on roof of RV

I'm glad to see yesterday's snow melting off roof of RV. 2 more months of winter from tomorrow, for first day of Spring! Anybody have any good snow pack pics on their RV's? Make sure you post location, so I can smile and say, "glad I'm not there!"

melting nicely here in NJ. Down to less than an inch. Shoveled what's left away from hot tub so I don't break my bones later when it falls back below freezing shortly. Yoopers, lol. Still laugh at that. I have a cassette from my college days by a band called the Yoopers.

You need an outdoor winter hobby do you can enjoy the snow! It has been a very mild snowless winter, at least in NJ. I was in VT skiing last weekend and it was pushing 60 degrees. Terrible!

I know this is cheating from the OPís post about snow on top of our RVís but I couldnít resist as these are some pretty fun photoís. Technically all this snow was ďon topĒ of my RV, there was just several feet of open space between the RV and snow.

I live 15 miles north of Spokane WA in a rural area that is in the southern end of a local snow belt. (Meaning we get more snow than nearby areas) My trailer is in a metal building with a metal roof which when itís warms up a bit the snow slides off the roof. In the last eight days we have had over 24Ē of snow and in the past two days the big roof slide off happened. I have 12í lean-toís on both sides of the building and as you can see I put three 2x6ís on the open sides to keep snow from entering the lean-to. Gonna have to add another 2x6 or two this summer.

My dream to have a place like that. My next home will be a townhouse built on top of a 4 car garage!

We usually get plenty of snow here in Erie PA but like others has been a mild winter. We did get 10 inches yesterday. The way our TT is parked in the drive the wind usually keeps most of the snow off. Two years ago, the week of Christmas 2017, we had nearly 100 inches of snow in one week. Even then the TT only had about 18 inches on it.

Do you attempt to remove excess snow? I have a snow rake I guess I could use to pull off excess without damaging cover.

I did after the Christmas storm. It was early in our winter and didn't know what else was to come. Who knew 2 weeks later everything was gone, even the snow piles. I used a foam snow pusher and a 12 foot step ladder. Pulled it off but didn't worry about getting to the bottom. Other than that storm I don't worry about it. I have an enclosed trailer for work that the wind doesn't get to the same and I leave that one be as well. The work trailer is 15 years old and no leaks.

IMO, there’s no need to try to remove snow from the roof. I’d be more concerned about damaging vents or something trying to scrape off the snow than I would be about the weight of leaving it up there.

I live about 10 miles west of Spokane, WA. I wish that we had a roof over our RV, too. Fortunately, we didnít get as much snow as you and the wind blew most of it off the trailer. I usually donít worry about the snow unless it gets really deep and heavy. In that case, weíll rake it off. (Sorry, but I donít have a picture.)

I'd post a photo of our front yard but it needs mowing. Maybe I'll mow it after my morning swim tomorrow.

Here in SW Mi we can have early or late surprise snow so we have been caught with a snow covered trailer. On time we were trading in one and dealer wanted the new one out and ours in so 4 hr later got the yard plowed and hooked up trailer. The other got suprising 8" snow fall in only 15 above 0 the day before leaving for FL for Easter. O well gatta love camping 😂
