to cover or not to cover

I live in Oregon in the Willamette Valley near Salem. I have a 2015 Jayco Jayflight that I just bought this past spring. I was thinking about buying a cover while I have it parked next to my house for the winter. If I don't buy a cover this winter should I at least buy a cover for the air conditioner?

I've heard good and bad about both. Personally, I do not cover the whole camper. I do put my wheel covers on and I have an ac cover that goes on for the winter months too.
What I have heard is that a complete cover traps moisture and can create other problems.
I was also told if I do not cover, be sure to keep up on roof inspections and resealing. I think that's good advice either way.

If your winters include freezing overnights with above freezing daytime highs, the ice cycling will destroy the seals between the roof and the A/C and the roof/wall connections.
