Handy DIY slideout top debris remover
The best thing to keep debris off the top of a slideout is a slideout cover, but I understand that can be a big investment if the coach doesn’t come with it. Fall is the worst time from the standpoint of debris landing on a coach roof. Leaves, branches, pine needles, you name it, will fall on the roof and collect.
Any debris that has landed on the slide roof while it’s out must be removed prior to sliding the box back in. Otherwise, the branches and other items can get jammed in the slide seal and cause damage to the seal, roof and more, as well as prevent the seals from seating properly and causing a leak.
It is certainly possible to get up on the roof and sweep it. But if you want another solution, try what Jim Twamley did, and make a blower to clear the slide from the ground!
This is a great tip for those of us who are staying in the north country camping
