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

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
