Oh, I almost forgot. Do not wax the decals! You will be sorry.


See my pic above. As long as you don't scrub hard in one place for a long time, they will be fine with waxing. It's the sun that really kills them.
Mine were waxed at least twice a year for the 13 years I had the rig but were also kept out of direct sun. Graphics aren't as sensitive as they were decades ago but the UV is still hard on them.

Did it for the 1st time last winter. Never again. Did more damage than good and the cover (Adco) shredded within the first 2 months. It was a tight fit and strapped well but still rubbed the front cap and several other areas dull.

I’ve been using the same Adco cover now for 9 years. It does have a couple of minor wear marks where I didn’t pad sharp edges well enough, but it still works great,

It is on the second tt, and both of them stayed new looking the entire time I’ve had them.

ADCO has a repair patch kit on their website for 25 bucks. I just bought it to patch a few small holes/tears on my cover. I was really pleased with it.

One of our more popular subjects. For even more posts search this Forum for `RV Cover'. We use a Sunshield tarp.
At the present time there are a few inches of snow on top of the tarp that is on top of the RV; black side up.

Jay flight, remember what I said in my first reply, because the anti cover crowd has showed up. They might sell RVs for a living is the only thing I can figure....
And wax doesn’t hurt decals either.....

Keeping my 20' boat covered is easy, even with the T-top. Covering our 32' TT is a dangerous chore. I'm sure it would help preserve it from the blistering Florida sun but, It's off more than it's on.

I always cover mine during the winder months. It really helps slow the weathering of the exterior.
