    Another way to clear snow off the roof of the camper is remount the camper onto the truck . Next drive as fast as you can then slam on the brakes . The opposing forces will loosen that slab of snow and it'll clean instantly !!! :rofl::rofl:

    plan B is actually to turn on the heat, let the bottom layer melt, then load up the camper and go for a drive. I just dont want to be the asshole showering the cars behind me in a whiteout

    I just came in the house to warm up a bit.
    Driveway is cleaned up. Now I got the roof rake out. Can't reach it all. Thankfully it's light fluffy snow. Tommorow the wind picks up and that should help.
    The temps went down. It's now 1°.
    Thankfully no wind today.

    Now that I provided the BS answer, maybe something realistic... Once you get it cleaned off, could you get a small tarp or cover to put on the roof, then when it snows enough, just pull the cover off, ditch the snow, then cover it again? Or would that be too much of a risk for the cover freezing to the roof?

    they make RV covers that form to the shape of the campers but the reviews on them aren't great. things just aren't made to last. and they're freaking expensive. plus my roof is small with lots of bumps and things - AC unit, vent, skylight, TV antenna, fridge and plumbing vents...lots of nooks and crannies to settle inbetween

    I'm also very out of shape !!!:facepalm:

    I removed all the snow off my truck and used a push broom and pushed all the snow off my driveway . Nothing like a good cardio exercise in 17° weather !!

    I spent about 2 hours out in 5°. Hands did get cold from plowing. With no wind and keeping active doing everything else it actually was nice out. You feel it in your lungs that cold crisp air.

    Afternoon all! I am officially too old to fish in the 20s. 33 and above from now on the eyes on a fly rod are a pain in the tail to keep the ice broken out of at 23 but on the bright side it warmed up to 25 around 10 this morning.
