Some of you may have actually experienced this, so I'm looking for insight for future occurrences.
My FWC Hawk/Ford F150 combo was parked on my lot near Fairplay while I was spending the summer in my cabin on said lot.
On Monday the temps were in the mid 70s and 5-10 inches of snow was predicted for Tuesday. Tuesday we got 10 inches of snow between 2pm and 10 pm, temps dropped to low 30s high 20s. No worries, I'm nice and cozy in my cabin.
So today I go out to the FWC/F150 and start sweeping of the snow. The camper is closed, but even with a full length broom I can't sweep the snow off the roof. I thought about getting my step ladder, but I thought that I should try to remove the snow as if I was camping. Couldn't do it, even tried driving forward and braking hard to shift the snow,....... no joy.
So here's my problem, it is not inconceivable, that I could have been in the backcountry camping, when this happened. There was no way to raise the roof with 10 inches of dry, powder, snow on it. Had the roof been up, I don't know if I would have been able to safely lower the roof with that amount of weight.
So what have others done????
If set up already, do you lower one end of the roof, every hour or so and hope the snow slides off? And pray if it doesn't slide off you're able to raise the roof back up.
Do you hope you're alone, drop the roof and sleep in sleuth mode?
