If we get alot of snowfall, is there any certain technique anyone reccomends to get the snow off? shovel, broom, ect. we dont have a Carport for it. so it wil be out in the elements this year....
I also have a rubber roof, and by no means an expert in this field, but I can tell you what I did and it has worked real well for me. I built a frame out of pv pipe and attached a two by four at each end of the trailer cut a hole the size of the pvc pipe in the two by for and slid the pvc pipe into the holes. then cover it with a vinyl tarp, both ends were open and the wind kept the snow and ice from building on tarp. It was sort of like a tee pee over the trailer. Very inexpensive and keeps the roof out of the hot sun and snow and ice. If this seems a little confusing here is my e-mail if you are interested I will try to send a picture so you can see what I mean. JimBecky at access995 dot com
