Tie a rope around the backend of the cover, throw rope on the roof.

CAREFULLY climb up there, pull slowly on rope till cover is covering the nose.

Spread the cover from side to side, slowly move to the rear while pulling and spreading the cover.

Once covered tie down tight.

I do not cover mine due to high wind speed, a cover would likely not last a year.

Thanks Ford. A bit worried about "el nino" here in Socal. Quite a bit last week but it also brings some pretty good wind. Don't want any leaks and if the $150.00 cover will last till it's over it may be worth it. I'll have to get the son's over to do the ladder and get on the roof though.
Thanks again

Just a heads up I had a cover on my old 5th wheel and it damaged the roof edges. You might want to pad the edges if you have a lot of wind that would move the cover around.
