Propane tank cover

How important is the propane tank cover - what are the problems without it?

UV damage on the hoses? Dosen't look good? Tempts thiefs?

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Also, protection from dust and rain, which can damage the regulator and rust the tanks, and from sun heating up the tanks which might cause some gas to be vented from the tanks.

The tank cover also keeps your locks from rusting or freezing up. It also keeps rock chips from happening.

My buddy has a real cheap cover on his 2008 Jayco that is broken. My 2010 model has a much thicker cover. Anybody know where to get a good deal on better quality propane covers?
