My concern (I live in Central Florida) is the summer time heat and humidity. The RV dealer strongly suggested I buy and use a full cover for my camper. They stated the summer UV's can cause drying, fading, and cracking. I've been looking for a full cover, one that "breathes", yet keeps the damaging sun UV's to a minimum while it's parked and not in use.

I would agree that in the southern states where the UV can be at it's worst, protecting the entire top of an RV while in outdoor storage would be recommended whenever possible.

Bucko, from what I have seen of covers you should look into the ADCO brand. If you have long, pointy gutter extensions you can prevent them from puncturing the cover by cutting a slits in tennis balls and sliding them over the sharp objects.

Excellent idea! I do indeed have those rain gutter extentions, and until reading your response, never thought about what damage they could do in the way of ripping a cover.

Thanks! I owe you a beverage of choice should I ever see you in person1

Put my ac cover on yesterday, along with my wheel/tire covers for the winter.
The covers came with a camper I bought a few campers ago and I just kept them. Not really sure I have a reason to use them, other than I have them...Cant hurt I guess...

We're in Minnesota and will be storing our TT at an outside storage faciliity where we won't have access to it during the winter. Should we be concerned with snow load and with that maybe covering the AC?

I covered my AC unit, and wheels. That's it.

I'd do more if the bottom of my checking account was a little deeper, maybe next year.
