Propane tank cover

My propane tank cover is over 2 20lb. tanks and just sits over the tanks. Can this blow off or should I run a bungee cord under it to keep this from happening. I noticed a small loop on the bottom back of the cover and thought that it may be for a securing device.

As a precaution, I do run a bungee cord under the cover.

Our first trailer had the soft side type cover over the tanks. no cord etc. Lost it on the pull home from the dealer.

Current trailer has hard sided tank cover that is secured with a small bungee underneath. I notice it moves around a bit while towing. I would not tow it without the bungee in place. We often hit 30-40 mph winds while towing. That can be a combined effect of 80mph travelling over the cover.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
