Where to put ladder on VEGAS/AXIS
 
We have a VEGAS 25.2, so no ladder attached...

Where is the best place to lean the ladder to access the roof doing as little damage to the coach or my body...?

i carry a 12' telescoping ladder in the front bay and i lean it on the passenger rear side on the awning not in the middle of awning but as close as you can get to end of the awning seems be really strong and no flex, l don't want to take a chance leaning against the roof TPO material seems to be a lot thinner than a rubber roof.

I store my 12' ladder in the front pass through, too. I lean that ladder just ahead of the awning on the curb side. I'm more concerned about bending the awning tube than ripping the roof, although neither result would be good.

Do you put any "protection" between the ladder and the did of the coach?

When I remember, I throw a towel over the top of the ladder. It can't hurt!

if i remember in front of the awning would be stepping on the front cap? thanks your correct either way it would be bad too damage roof or awning, i can say the awning roller tube is very strong and is tight against the rv i do put a towel over the top of the ladder. i did slide my new 2nd roof ac up the ladder with no problem with a helper on the roof with a rope to help get it up on the roof. we do love our 25.2 for the large shower and wife is able to use a stool in the shower as well and find the queen bed very comfortable.
