X2, ours came with a little bungie cord, you could just get one at walmart.

Seann, after meeting you I can easily see how you could need help getting the cover off your tanks.

Yep! Underground. In western PA there are a number of limestone mines that store hundreds of RVs over the winter in the mined-out areas. With a constant temperature of around 52 degrees you don't even have to winterize- although, I still do just in case the temps go below freezing before putting it in or after taking it out of the mine.

Many businesses and large corporations lease areas of the mine and build their own underground record retention centers. Their data centers store their backup files and historical records in these facilities. There are even some movie companies that keep their master copies of films and pictures underground. They're safe, fireproof and secure. Some mines even have climate-controlled areas for the storage of antique automobiles.

FPM keeps his Jayco in a nuke proof underground fallout shelter! With a constant temp, no sunlight, rain or snow it will last forever!

Thanks for the feedback and ideas. It looks like I can loosen the bottles and slide them out a little to get some tension. I also like the bungie cord idea. My cover has the two tabs, so I'm thinking that must be what they are for.

Thanks all!
