What's on top of your slide-inside?

Decided to take a look on top of slide while retracted. Wow, it's been a year or so since I cleaned it off and was amazed at how many pine needles etc. had accumulated behind the inside seal. I remember last couple of times camping we were under pine trees and the needles have a way of going under the seals.
Thought I would mention it in case some of you have some time on your hands are looking for something to do on your coach.
I would have taken some pics, but it was to ugly.

There are just some things; that we don't want to know...

Even though we probably should!

Right on Bob. That's exactly what I said as I shook the old rag outside and stuff was falling out..........including a dried up frog.

The wife does all the inside stuff while I do the outside when we break camp. A few times ago, I went inside for something and she was standing on the bed with Windex...cleaning slide tops. I quit worrying about them then.

Thanks Gritz Carlton, now that you to posted that your wife cleans the top of the slide I will have to add it to my list of chores.... kind of like out of sight, out of mind... but once I hear it, it has to be done. I am obligated now to include it. I can't play the "I didn't know you are supposed to do that" card. hehe

A couple of years ago after I had my heart attack my coach sat in the driveway for a period of time with the slides out. When I winterized the coach that year I brought the slides in without looking and attached to the living room slide was a wasp nest. I was killing wasps inside the coach for a couple of weeks after that incident.

It is kind of remarkable how a wasp nest will get past the slide seals intact.
