So much snow in the Laurentians, Montreal

We have had so much snow...at least three meters. We have cleared the top of our RV twice but the snow is piling up the sides. Is there anything I should be aware of come the thaw?

As long as you winterized the rig properly and there hasn't been any leakage, you should be OK. That being said, i really don't know what the roof load rating is for RVs. I should immagine that some are stronger than others.

Snow is a good insulator so it should be easier to heat if one is using the RV, but it also stops things from ventalating so I would make certain all things that need to vent are clear again only if one is living in the RV.

I would expect most RV's would withstand a lot of weight that was evenly spread such as snow would be, but it is a good question about how strong the roof is because wet snow can be very heavy. Have never seen specs re roof strength.

Get out the snowmobiles. You have the best trail system in the world. I really miss not being able to come up there 5 times or so each winter like I used to.
