      TedsCanoe October 9, 2020 Retractable awning that opens and closes with the slideout. Usually camp under trees so it's a must.

      Notmouse and J October 9, 2020 Climbing a ladder to the side of the slideout and using a rake or a leaf blower is what we use. And if it has puddles that you think might make their way in to the camper a long handled squeegee could work as well.  We also insp...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham October 9, 2020 The guy next to us fired off a gas powered leaf blower and used a short ladder to blow everything off his roof and slideout.  We were none too happy with the noise but at least he did not start at 7am.

        GlenM October 9, 2020 I have seen leaf blowers that have extensions that go on the blower to make the longer. That might work to reach the top of the slide.

      LarandSus October 9, 2020 We have slide toppers but still climb up make sure they are cleaned off before pulling the slides in. So I don't consider that a solution to your problem.

        rvericksons October 9, 2020 We have slide toppers all the way around. The only time i have to give them some help is if they get loaded up with snow (we are skiers, so spend winters in snowy areas.) Other than that, we don't go up on a ladder every time we move to check on the slides.

        LarandSus October 11, 2020 When branches, twigs and nuts, even wet leaves fall out of trees, we don't want to roll those up and potentially damage our slide toppers.

      Frank & Kim October 10, 2020 I bought a telescoping ladder that I put up beside the slide to blow it off before bringing it in.  The ladder has small rubber feet that turn outward to protect the sides of the RV.  I use a Ryobi battery powered blower (part of the one+ 18 vol...  more

      LoLaBaDu October 13, 2020 Thank everyone for the suggestions.  We don't want to invest in the slide toppers as reviews show they are not very good at keeping blown debris out and it makes it harder to clean them when things do get under the topper.  We have gotten a ladd...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham October 13, 2020 Please pick an electric blower, not gas.  A little more quiet and safer to transport without fuel in it.  Of course it will do no good if dry camping (boondocking) and no electricity from post or generator.

      Libby family October 17, 2020 I pack a latter in my belly bin. I'm looking for a bracket (possibly a patio railing planter) so I can then hook it to my roof latter and secure with bungies... then I don't need to empty the entire bin to get to it. Hope this makes sense/helps.

      TeamFoxy October 21, 2020 We have a Milwaukee battery blower that works well. A good ladder is important for lots of chores on an RV. That said, I still would not go without slide toppers, having had slides without them. They do keep most of the debree out and they keep UV from de...  more
