I am interested in buying some tire covers. Does anyone have a suggestion of what is best to get? I've heard white covers were better. But I've heard that getting a snap on cover that covers the wheel well, not covering over the tire itself, was better. Do you use a tire cover while parked outside? My unit stays stored inside, but we do park on vacation outside for several weeks at a time.
Any recommendation would be appreciated.

As long as they're covered, they should be good.

Had them once upon a time. Became more hassle than they are worth if you ask me, especially storing it inside having no benefit to covers at all. They get dirty, wet etc and then you have to store them when not using. Your tires will age out at the same rate whether you use them or not. That of course is my opinion - to each his own.

On Edit - I should mention that storing the RV inside and where we camp it is usually heavy with tree cover, that is the reason we never saw much of a benefit. Since the OP stores his RV indoors, this was the reason for my response. Seems it's not 5 minutes go by til someone on this forum is waiting in the wings to flame your post. Flame away flamers.
