For all you Southerners, as soon as the way is cleared, you might want to check your local hardware store and see if they have a 'roof rake'. We use ours a lot at home, but we are also used to lots of snow each year. This is a LONG handle with a rake on the end so you can stand on the ground and simply sweep the snow off the roof. It is a lot safer than using a ladder .

I really feel for you guys because that is exactly the reason we head to Florida for the winter. I am through with snow!!!

Holy moly….. WOW. While we did get 4 more inches today and 4 more on the way yet tonight, we have not yet caught you to your first go around. Maybe 24 to 26” if we get it all as some did drop in compression yesterday.

The 5er roof, the good news is it is a walk on roof isn’t it? That will help. Here is something maybe that can help ease your mind or give some ideas. Call the dealer you bought it from. Are they not in the same area of heavy snow? That have a lot full of campers. Do they have any concerns? What are they doing or not?

Actually if you have high winds it might help the 5er roof, “maybe” It might blow some of it off that is loose at least.

Another thing to look at is the T299SR. While the back gave way, the front is still standing isn’t it? I know part of it was at least a walk on roof at least to the AC unit as Gary was standing on it….. Is the ceiling still in or out? An observation of the inside looking up on the inside and how it is holding up may help tell how well the 5er is holding up as the 5er is stronger then the T299. The roof may be doing better then we think. These things have some snow load rating to them, the good question is what?

Wish you where not so far away and so buried…I come over and help do something, don’t know what.

Good luck.

John

UNFORTUNATELY it looks like we're the accumlation kings here in Berks County PA. The first storm gave us only 21" but this one has given us another 21", for a total of 42" so far, and isn't supposed to stop completely until 10 p.m. Our paperbox is under snow and I fear the mailbox will be gone by the morning. Steve was on the Tweety roof digging out.

WOW I never thought living here in Virginia I would be seeking advice from our Canadian neighbors about how to get snow off my roof, In our case both the Sunline and my home which only has a 4/12 pitch roof.. My neighbors are climbing up on their roofs and clearing with shovels but I think I’ll need to find a safer solution. Plan to attack the problem tomorrow.

Thanks for the great advice but as for the roof rake its not a commonly stocked item around here. Last one I saw was in Minnesota

We got a few inches here as well





Yep..................there is a Sunline under there somewhere



And there's supposed to be a Jeep under this one. You can see the antenna if you look closely



Knee deep in the driveway. Believe it or not, It was cleared of the 20 some inches we got Saturday



Like Tweety said, the mailboxes are just about gone



This is our Jeep



And this is my Truck..............



I hope we get some snow before this winter ends

Oh my Marshall! That's some snow!

I know we all say we take different things from pics. For me, I found it interesting to see how snow piles up on the top of the fender skirts...mine hasn't seen snow with me so I don't get to see how it takes it.

Have they even plowed your road, or are you snowed in?

We are pretty snowed in. We live on a secondary road and we are not on anyone's rush list. But that's okay, got to have some fun today, did not go to work and got to catch up on some posts. All in all, Life is Good!!!

Here are a couple shots of the road right before dark

Oh my gosh

OK you guys win!!! I'm staying here in Central Ohio. Just came in from plowing. We only have ~ 24 to 26"

And we did loose the mail box on the 1st storm and so do just about the entire road of neighbors. Was out on Sunday screwing the new one on freezing my fingers big time the wind was blowing so bad. That heavy wet snow and the town wing plow was all it took....

But it seems to have stoped, for the moment.

Wow!! You guys sure are getting hit with a lot of snow. Here I am sitting up here in Canada and we only have a light dusting of snow on the ground and we only got that overnight. In our area, we haven't had any snow since before Christmas. We are definitely thinking of all of you that got hit with this snow storm. Remember stay safe and don't over do the shoveling.

Remember all the stories grandpa used to tell about the winters where the fence posts disappeared... or they could almost touch the wires (telephone poles I hope). Well, you folks will be able to join right in! The only difference was that nobody believed grandpa because he never had any pictures.

We've got 4-8" of fairly heavy, wet stuff on the roof of the 2363 right now. The 4" depth is towards the front, and it gradually gets deeper up to about the 8" as you get towards the back.

I'd really like to go sweep it off, but with the depth of the snow on the ground, I can't get anywhere near the trailer.

All I keep saying is "WHY don't I have a snow blower?!?"

Hey Marshall, I know this will be a unique question, but do you remember if you had the jack handle straight down when you parked Pigpen?

I'm just wondering if all that snow was heavy enough to unwind the jack a little...

OK, OK, OK Yeah, the snow has stopped, the sun was out nice and bright today. In all we ended up with a total of 42 or 43 inches. Way more than anyone needs. Yesterday afternoon I walked over to my sons, and as he shoveled his roof off (he had some interior doors that were not shutting properly), his fiance and I shoveled the snow off the deck as it landed there. Then Gary finally got home safe from work, then my son & Gary went to get a truck un-stuck, and my son got stuck, luckily a front end loaded came by and pulled him out. I went along for the ride and to get out of the house. Let me tell you it was NOT good, the wagon trail was not even as wide as the truck. But we got home safe. I had made "snow cream" and boy is that good, so we had that as a snack.

The rear roof on the 299 has caved in (it had 10 broken roof trusses), but amazingly, the front is still standing, even though it is just a skeleton. So, I guess that is another testament to Sunline built quality.

Now, all this crap has to do is melt "SLOWLY", so we don't get flooded.

Kitty

Did it bend the ladder or did the ladder just break away from the wall/roof?

If it doesn't collapse any more, the ladder will come out straight.. It's just a little twisted right now....

Hey Kitty,
Have you cleared off the roof yet? There would've been about 28" on ours by now if I hadn't done that after both storms. Right now it's about a foot which doesn't worry me too much.
There talking about more on the way now.
Rich
