That's ludicrous...IMO of course.
I have covered all my vehicles for years and have kept the paint,interior,rubber etc lasting 2-3 times longer.
My RV is covered (unpainted) and the gelcoat will last much longer as a result.
A good quality breathable soft cover should not "harm" paint. Corners (if they are tight) may rub the paint off in some areas- you would need to be careful there. A plastic tarp will for sure rub the paint down.
Keep your painted RV uncovered and report back how long it takes for the clear to delaminate on the caps. They all do in time- unless you vinyl clear-cover them or wax the unit every month.
