a/c cover

Just wondering if I should cover my a/c with a tarp for the winter on my fifth wheel. Im going to winterize my camper tomorrow? I was not sure if I should leave it exposed over the winter.

Being from the deep south, I guess you will only need to cover all the other vents, I was reading in Highway, a good idear is to make a plywood covering for all the plastic vents, .

We used to cover our vents with plywood covers. It made it easy to find them when removing snow. I really don't know about an AC cover.

I never felt the need to cover my A/C units in all the years that I have owned RV's in Michigan. I do have a vinyl cover for my A/C, but have never used it. In the spring I always check my roof for any cracked caulking and make sure that the fall leaves haven't found a home around the A/C.

All my ceiling vents have the standard MaxxAir covers over them, so I'm not concerned about the clear plastic vent covers being compromised with the snow or ice build up.

I just keep the nose of the TT up a little while in storage so the water can drain off the back of the TT rather than the window in my front cap.
