One of our neighbors does what we call blow dry his lawn after he cuts it, still trying to figure out why??? Is he trying to eliminate the wheel marks or maybe the clumps that pile up

Many folks will blow the moisture off the slide before bringing it in, keeping
that moisture from evaporating into the R/V once closed. Wiper seals don't get it dry. I've seen several folks do it.

Picky?... maybe but to each their own.

Never used it to dry the roof or sides of the RV. Crazy.
There are many unintended uses for leaf blowers. I once used a leaf blower to pressurize a travel trailer so I could soap different places on the roof to look for leaks.

Also notice that the slide is out. Wonder what type of damage the awkward jacking will cause for the slide.

Yes. At the Tampa super show. Rear wheels off the ground, frame jacked, slide is out and the parking brake is rendered useless since the parking brake is on the rear wheels.
