Slide Canopy / Water & Snow

Recommended Posts


Looks more like ice, not snow, but then I'm no expert on that subject, nor do I want to be! :rolleyes:

What's you doing that the induction into Sr. VP land..:lol:

We are living at the moment full time in our RV and are In Carlisle PA  

About every 3-4 weeks we take our unit out for fuel and if appropriate a wash job. Today, attempting to get the unit ready to take out, I discovered the canopy that comes out with the slide had ice on it, about 1 in thick in the middle where it had troughed and it was impossible to retract the sides. Had to get an extension ladder and it took about an hour to clear the 3 slide canopies.

Given we’re going to be here for a few months this is bound to occur again and I’m looking for suggestions on how to avoid having water / snow get on top of the canopy and sit there. 

I didn't answer your question. The simplest way to avoid water pooling on the toppers is to raise the front end on the jacks during/after a rain/snow event just enough to allow drainage. Lower to level after a short time, so you don't get the frig cooling system upset. Some folks have used cheap inflatable beach balls to prop up the toppers, but I find using the jacks much easier.
