No snow shovel

Some people say to go to Arizona for the winter where it is warm and sunny. We are 90 miles north of Phoenix Az and the sunshine is 3" deep right now. What that is snow not sunshine. No rubber boots or any way to move the snow.

Just going to celebrate new years eve and stay put.

 

 

Happy new years to all, Vern

Any idea on the easiest way Linda ?

 

If the snow is dry the easiest way is just pull the slides in. Watch while you are doing it though because the snow can pack and jam the slide. When we do it one watches and one keeps a finger on the button. Last fall in Denver the snow fell right off the topper on the north side, on the south side in the sun I had to brush it off as it had started melting even though it was 10 degrees.

 

Otherwise a long handled broom is the best way. If it is sunny and below freezing it is best to get the snow off right away as the topers can sag and freeze to the top of the slide. Been there, done that - a real PIA. The time that happened I used the hose and a ladder to melt the ice before I could pull in the slides.

Jim - Every trailer / MH is different, BUT in the north many sit all winter with anywhere from 1 to 3-4' of snow on top of them. Granted, the slides are not out and it is just on the roof. I wouldn't get to excited about a couple of inches.

 

A friend of ours was packing to head south and had everything open while doing so. There was 4' of snow, ice, thaw freeze of the roof and another foot or so on the slides (sudden storm). Luckily there was a law in the state about driving with snow covered roofs (mostly trucks and such, who pulls a camper in the winter?). His original plan was to just hit the nearest bridge (and drop it on the road, hence the law), but his wife convinced him to 'clean the roof' (you know how you gripe about when trucks do that to you!!)

 

Had he done the original bridge cleaning, the ice - snow - melt would have cleaned the roof alright - air conditioners, vents, stack covers, antennas and anything else up there!!

I did a beautiful job of cleaning pine needles off as I was leaving CA sure didnt want to be transporting them out of state ! The broom idea didnt bother me, The hose idea sounded good cept it was buried under snow ! Pulling slides in DW said was grounds for the big D and digging ladder out to use broom was to cold ! So according to weather Lady it is supposed to warm up enough Friday to give it a meltdown or at least warm enough to dig a warmer hose out of the basement. I sure hope my sewer hose didnt freeze and break because if it did DW is going to have a new job :)

That can happen in AZ from time to time. Mostly not, but it can. That is why I prefer

southern Florida, Palm Beach and below. Over time that is the best weather in the country

during winter. It does cost more then south Texas or AZ but you will be sure of good weather.

Trouble is you have to deal with biting insects and rude locals in addition to higher prices.
