You don't mention what type or model rig you have so what works for a PU might not be right for a MH.

Most ac's have a plastic cover already so you are good there. As for the frig, furnace, and so forth, I never worry about them. What I would worry about is the amount of snow/ice that builds up on the roof. If you have over a foot of accumulation I would consider removing some. But do not scrap it down to the roof deck as the membranes are very thin and tear/cut really easily.

As far as the fridge, water heater , heater doors you could purchase this insulation called reflectix bubble insulation you can buy at lowes you can cut it to size and line the inside of the access panels then purchase a cover for the a/c unit then winterize you should be set

I use white plastic to cover the fridge, water heater and furnace vents, but more to keep insects out than snow.

Get lots of snow here. No need for covers like I said. More problems can be caused by blocking off vent covers.

If you seal WH etc. covers tightly I can imagine trapped condensation from the freeze/thaw cycle would cause problems long before a little snow or rain blowing into them.

I prefer to cover my entire RV. It sits for several months without moving during the winter, so why not protect it the best you can? You can drive through the storage yard I'm in, and it is pretty easy to tell which units get covered, and which ones don't. With the full cover, I can leave my roof vents open while it is in bed for the winter.

We use "MaxAir" vents. Work well. Can be left open, without any problems.
