Camco Cover Straps

I bought one of these CAMCO covers (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o03_s00) for my A122S. I like the cover, ok,.. and it will serve a purpose (still wish I had a garage or carport). Anyway... does anyone know the secret to using the bendable straps. There's seems to be no place, on the a122s, to hook the strap once you bend it into shape. The instructions show hooking it to the side of the camper under the frame. But that just doesn't seem to work with my camper.

I ended up using bungee cords. Going to go get some longer ones today if I can't figure out those bendable straps.

I really like the cover but I received no instructions with mine. I'm going with the bungee cords too and attaching them to the frame rails. The cover has been through one tough Ontario winter so fall and through it wonderfully.

From Amazon review:
Ok... after sitting stumped in the driveway for 10 minutes trying to figure out what the heck to do with the straps hanging from the cover and the bungie pieces in our hands... I stomped into the house and sat down to see who else complained that this makes no sense! Then I came across a VERY HELPFUL reviewer's post who explained what to do, lol. You take one of the straps hanging from the cover and tie it to the loop end of the bungie strap. Then you take the other end of the bungie strap that has the metal strip with fabric over it, and bend it into a u-shape and hook it right onto your campers frame. Repeat all the way around.

I received instructions with mine.. so I know about bending, etc. But there is no place on my a122s to hook them.

Bummer, seems like there would be a place under edge of frame. You make me glad I have the carport

I know this reply is a bit late, but I thought I would share what I did with my Camco cover. I used ball bungees attached to the four stabilizer jacks for the corner straps. 2 center door side straps hooked to retracted door step frame. on the othet side, my A192hw has a frame member reinforcement with 3 holes in it. needed to use ball bungees for straps to reach. It covers entire camper box, spare tire, and propane tanks. I bought the 14'-16' cover and it's definitely long. The box Measures 15', go figure. I put a 3 gallon plastic bucket over the eletric tongue jack. Hooked the chains to the bucket handle. Tucked wiring up into the bucket, snd covered the whole front tongue with a tarp and ball bungees.

Good job.. I made mine work.. used bungees. This is the first winter. I'll let you know, in a month or two, how it protected the camper. I also put a bucket over the power jack.. then a separate tarp over the jack, propane tanks and battery. Bungeed the tarp secure.
