Ps- now living at only 4,700 ft. elev. but it still can get to 10 degrees below on occasion.
I was surprised at how easily my cover went on. When new I took the cover out of the box and laid it out on the driveway. I folded the sides into the center and then folded in the sides of the top toward the center until it was about 4' across and about 45' long. I rolled it up so that I could start unrolling it on the RV roof starting at the front. I made sure it was right side up and I could drop the sides as I went back. I covered all my rain gutters. To get it on the roof I put it in my TV bed and backed up to the RV. It was in a big roll and tied with a rope. I lifted and pushed and a friend was on the roof and pulled it on up with the rope. He untied it and walked along the roof unrolling it and dropping the sides. After he was done we made sure it was centered and then hooked and tightened all the straps. Preparation took a couple of hours but from lifting it up on the roof to finished was less than 15 minutes.

Anyone find a cover for a V nose? We are storing our windjammer at home this year. It will be outside in the Ohio winter. We are thinking of getting a cover for the roof only. Anyone use those?

I have used an ADCO cover for the last 3 years. It is very easy to put on and take off, taking less than 20 minutes for either operation. We camp most every weekend and I put it on after every trip. It really helps keep the rig clean, and it is the next best thing to a garage for protection from the elements. Put something on any sharp edges and the cover should last quite a few years. I use 2 soccer balls for endcaps on my rear bumper and a tennis ball on a knob on the topper that sticks up when the slide out is pulled in.
