Blowing Off The Trailer Roof

How often does a travel trailer owner get on a ladder and check out the safety of the roof for leaks, rips, and cracks. The answer, not many if ever.

Recently we had two (2) incidents that occurred where the high speed and triple digit temperatures caused the protective liner to give out and fly off the entire roof structure leaving only a gaping hole with not internal protection of the ripped off section.

More photos to come…. More concern for safety, more checking of those vulnerable connection sites to prevent rather that cure the potential problems.

Constant attention to all the what ifs will certainly reduce un-foreseen surprises that could create a dangerous environment that could have been preventable.

Safety should always come first!!!
