If your Airstream is stored outside and gets buried in snow do you guys try to remove the snow on and around your Airstream after the storm?

Would melting snow that refreezes into crevices each night cause expansion which would help accelerate leaks down the road?

The only kravass that froze was the entrance door, forgot to silicone the gasket @ winterize.

The Classic has been outside for 12 WNY Winters, the only leaks.
Rear belt line into trunk, sealed.
Skylight, cracked when installed @ JC, replaced.
FF vent, same as above, replaced FF warrantee.
All clearance light lens, made new gaskets & sealed.
