17FQ Cover

We just bought a 2016 Viking 17fq and we want to purchase a cover for it, to protect it from tree sap and sun discoloration (at the outside storage facility), but we are concerned about the Florida humidity being held in by the cover and causing mold issues. Does anyone have any recommendations, or any pros and cons for using a cover?
Thank you, Brad and Gretchen

I bought a cover late last year for our 17FQ but haven't put it on yet. At 6500' elevation we have a lot of UV exposure to contend with. So a cover protects from fading and deterioration of plastic parts.

I've heard people say in humid climates covers tend to trap moisture and can increase the potential for mold and mildew. Your best bet would be to ask around local dealerships to see what they recommend.
