Rain Spouts Question?

We have factory/dealer installed plastic rain spouts on our roof gutters. We cover our TT between uses to protect it from the sun, but the cover pushes the rain spouts down and they have become somewhat deformed. I tried using pieces of PVC pipe under each spout but that hasn't worked.

Is there a trick or device I can use to keep the cover from pushing the spouts down or am I the first with this issue?

I cut a section of pipe insulation and loop it over and duct tape it, more to keep the spouts from wearing holes in the cover

Pipe insulation or a pool noodle works for me. I use a pool noodle b/c I can get them on close out in the fall and they're often fatter than pipe insulation. The same also works well to keep the spouts and other pointy parts from punching holes in the cover.

Thanks for all the ideas. I will probably try them all to see which works best.
