One of the first things I did to mine when I got it was to remove the black covers. Mostly, I was curious as to what was behind them. Glad I did, it provided access to quite a bit of stuff, such as the water pump, bypass valves, antifreeze intake hose, etc. I can also now see the fresh water tank and hoses.

I have taken mine of many times but I put it back on as I think it gives the pump a little bit of protection when it gets close to a freezing temperature. The Arctic pack doesn't cover the pump.

I removed the plastic cover hiding the tank to install the valve, and for the same reasons Tailwind mentioned. It's nice to be able to visually check the water level in the tank.

If there is freezing weather, I put a small utility lamp with a 60 watt bulb in the compartment. A second lamp is used in the other compartment with the water filter. The heat from the bulbs keeps the plumbing above freezing. It's just like the old Kenner Easy Bake Oven....
