Snow Vs. RV: Snow wins!

Hi, All


This Scamp Versus Snow picture got me to wondering what those of you in snow country have to do to prevent this kind of disaster...

Besides putting the rig in the garage or getting out of town, I mean!

Is it an all winter drill to go out and shove the snow off the roof?

Thanks!

Francesca
Hi, All

Apparently only I can see a picture of a trailer with a caved in roof below
!

Please let me know if you ALSO can't see this emoticon of me throwing my computer across the room!
I pasted it in using the same method used for the picture...

I give up on the caved in Scamp picture.

But what do people do to keep snow from building up to the point where it can cave in an RV roof?
(Like the one in the picture that only I can see...)

Thanks, Gregg!

It don't snow in Tallahassee ...much

How high did the snow have to get to cause a roof cave in on that cute little thing? I couldn't even fit in the bed.

We don't get much snow in SE Texas...so I don;t worry about it...Most of the time, we don't even winterize.

aww, there you go, you had to pee on my tree.....and start talking about snow. Snow means winter. Winter here in WI means many many months of the nasty white stuff and cold. Gotta move south one of these years.
