I don't think anyone including my manufacturer would dispute or disagree with the statement "that a good cover properly installed offers me a little extra protection through the Ohio winters
" that is true in Texas or the Sahara Desert.
The point is my Mfg says in the Owners Manual that RV covers are NOT recommended and they tell you why
. They don't say they recommend them in any certain state or any certain season(s) of the year. They also don't say to not use.
To be clear I have ZERO experience with an actual RV cover. I have covers for my boat and both motorcycles. I can actually take a picture of cover damage on one front tire fender finish on one of my bikes. It is dull color that will never wax out. I also have covers for all of my vehicles, but I only use them when they can't be garaged when hail is in the forecast.
With all that said, I do get, understand and appreciate why one might find it desirable to cover such a pricey possession over extended months when not in use. When compared to the RV owner that leaves their RV out exposed to the elements with no proper waxing; it is night and day difference. But if you do the research and actually maintain the waxed finish as you state; your cover has just as much chance of doing damage as it does of further providing that little extra protection
I am curious about something. Do they cover and stop selling RVs at the dealerships in Ohio during the winter?
