Same problem, I carry a 10ft step ladder on the back ladder, another story, Have a long extendable pole, screw a squeegee on it and squeegee it to one end and off. One unexpected shower when coming to a stop was enough for me. Generally up there anyway blowing off the leaves from top of the awning.
