clean out slide awnings?

anyone have any tips or tricks as how to periodically cleanout the pine needles, fir needles, and misc debris that collect in a 2012 Anthem slide awning cases/tubes? seems like the only way to keep them out of the section that the fabric rolls into is to blow or sweep off the slide awning every time we bring the slides in????? but that won't get everything if wind or rain washes debris into the awning tubes.

I have the same problem. I contacted the manufacturer, Carefree, and they gave me some directions to remove end covers screws and raise the metal covers to access the debris. I haven't cleaned them out yet, but it seems pretty straight forward.

Very easy to do!
Remove the middle screw on both ends of the slide topper and there is a release in the middle of the larger toppers. Then flip the shield up to allow the debris to fall out. Have had to do it a few times.

Does the topper have to open or closed to do this clean out? What about a ladder, do you have a self supportive ladder or just lean a straight ladder against the coach?

I have been displaying our tree needles from Fort Wilderness all across the great country of ours...LOL...

I used a lean ladder to do mine. Open would probably be easier so youcan flip the cover onto the top.
