R$V cover

I'm thinking about getting a cover for my 2012 29 RLDS. i have it waxed once a year and it looks great but I'm tossing the cover idea around.
My question is about the radio antenna. How does it come off? As I guess i would have to take it off when i put the cover on.

One screw at the base of the mast. Back off screw, lower and then tighten screw. Done in 15 seconds.

Plus 15 minutes finding the ladder, dragging it outside and setting it up.

Then climbing back down to get the screwdriver.

Then climbing down and back up with the correct screwdriver.

Then 3/4 of an hour straightening up that corner of the garage so the ladder will store properly.

Yup, nice and easy.

Then getting the ladder back out to help put the cover on.

I just loosened the screw layed the antenna down till it was just off the roof. Tightened the screw. It has been that way since I bought the TT. I keep the TT it covered when not in use. (and I have no problem with reception)

Thank you all for the replies. I have been on the roof several times to clean and seal it but never noticed anything about how the radio antenna was attached.

I'm curious as to which brand of cover and who you are considering buying it from. Ive been shopping around for one myself and I've looked real hard at the ones Amazon has to offer but I haven't pulled the trigger yet!

Think about actual usage before you drop a couple hundred dollars. Its a pain in the neck to put on and take off, then when it gets wet when its off you gotta dry it before you can put it back on. Gotta keep it tight so wind doesn't cause it to rub a hole in the cover or your roof

We bought a RV carport that we drive under and park. Don't need to climb a ladder, don't worry about the weather. Can keep the slide open to pack and unpack. Keeps it dry and clean and doesn't have never-ending maintenance.

Overheard an interesting conversation at our dealer last weekend. Woman was looking at the covers and the owner told he'd get her one, but they don't recommend them. Many of the same reasons that Spoon mentioned, but also that they promote mold as they tend to trap moisture. His stance was they weren't necessary, but if she really wanted one he'd order one that could breathe.

The only things I cover are the A/C units and the tires.

We've covered 2 different campers in the last 6 years here in Indiana with no ill effects. Clean it, cover it, and it looks great the following spring when removed. Watch the Adco video for the proper way to to use their covers. I never cinch mine down tight.
