270BH roof question.

I do not have a ladder on the back of my TT. Am I supposed to get up on my roof to clean and inspect it, or should I just do that from the sides with a ladder? I just wasn't sure if I can walk around on my roof?

Thanks.

I have asked this question a few times to different dealers. They all say the same thing, dont walk on it, will void the warranty. You need a tall A frame type ladder and can use it to reach over as far as possible. Moving the ladder as needed.

When I asked about recaulking they suggested bringing it in, of course, but did say if you waled on the beams, it would be OK. They did not suggest I do that as I'm over 250 and they use the smallest guy in the shop to do it.

They also strongly suggested staying off it when its warm as the material will more easily tear.

Thanks Burgy, that's what I thought. I'll just get a nice tall ladder and clean the roof that way. When I take it in for warranty work before I store it for winter I'll have them check my caulking on the roof.

Yeah, its a shame, i like doing that kind of stuff, now i "can't". Of course if you get an extended warranty, you HAVE to let them do it.

i have a couple of 3' X 2' pieces of plywood that I glued carpet onto to protect the roof. I lay them on the rafters to spread out the load on the roof.

My dealer told me just the opposite. Told me walking on the roof was fine and they are built to handle it. The guy that installed my solar panel weighed 300 easily. They did say do not remove snow and damage may occur

I use the boards if I have to get on the roof, and a long handled brush with a tall ladder and hose to wash it from the side. I would not walk on the roof, and I believe Crossroads also recommends not walking on it.
