As you can tell, it is a personal decision and probably also based on where you live. We live in the Midwest with lake effect snow so I've chosen to cover. My comment is in regards to supporting the gutters and other areas. The tennis balls are a must if you have gutters. One more thing if you get snow or high winds--protect your antenna cable coming out of the roof. Mine broke on a brand new TT last year because of the cover and snow. Winegard refused to accept responsibility so I had to fix it myself.

We live next to Lake Ontario across from the state of New York. We get pretty much the same weather as you redenbacher. We had one of the worst winters on record last year 2014/2015. It helps with the cover dicision! I'll do something to protect the wire too. Thank you!

How do you put the cover over the radio antenna?

Thanks for all of the other suggestions. This is our first TT :-)

Loosen the screw at the base of the antenna and just let it lay flat on the roof.

The radio antenna should have a multi position set screw, loosen the screw and position it in the down position [horizontal with roof], then re-tighten.

If your model is like mine, the radio antenna is held upright by a screw near the base. You can unscrew it some and the antenna will lay down--then retighten the screw.

Our trailer should arrive next week and I am considering buying a cover for it.

Living in NW Oregon, we get... well... quite a lot of rain. My concern is that it often rains through the late spring and doesn't really start to dry up until mid-June. What if I want to take the trailer out and the cover is wet? I don't really have a place large enough to lay it out to dry, so I'm concerned about mildew, etc.

How have others dealt with this?

Anyone in Georgia,, due we need to cover? We have ours stored at a large, secured storage facility (HOA has a come apart when we have it at home for more than a couple of days. Do to just to irritate them). There is only one of the 150 TTs covered.

Wish I had heard of the tennis ball idea before my Adco cover got holes in it from the gutter extensions. I put on the provided extension covers thinking they would keep it from happening like the instructions say, but they still poked holes...
