Final winterizing, 5th wheel cover

I installed the cover slightly different from the You tube video since I did it by myself. I did open and unroll it to determine the front/back ends ends and rolled back up.
I took a bungee cord to keep it rolled up, then took my 10 foot ladder along to get it on top. Worked out well to unroll on top and spread it out. It took me about an hour to completely secure it. If you have the rain gutters, I would advise buying foam pipe insulation and duct tape over the gutters. Ready for winter, except I need to remove the anode rod. Today is the first day at freezing or below.
(One of these days, I'll be heading back down south for good, I hope.)

Be sure to check straps every few weeks at first. Both covers I've had...when they were new, I had to re-tighten the straps a couple times as the material stretched out. After a couple times it was good all winter.
