We're about to store our new MADP in the hot Florida sun. What kind of tire covers do you recommend? On our '01 we got the white canvas/plastic covers at Canping World and they were a colossal pain to put on.

Then again we've heard with a good UV protectant (recommendations?) you really don't need covers. Agree?

We drive the coach every 3 - 4 weeks when it's in storage, BTW. Plus we'll be going on a few week-long trips in January and February before we head west again in April.

Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

I am no longer a believer in tire covers, except possibly if the rig was not moved for months and months.

I talked to a sunscreen vendor at last years Tampa show, and they do not use them on their Prevost. She told me she would make and sell me a set if I wanted them, but suggested that I save my money.

I and others use 303 Protectant.

I concur with Dirk's assessment.

I to have a new 08 Ventana an am opting not to use tire covers, according to factory provide Goodyear literatures tires have been manufactured with Ozone and age cracking inhibitors to minimize the effects of those bad guys. Michelin website also makes the same claims with their new RV tires. Hopefully I will safe a few $$.

I too recommend use of 303 protectant, it too helps to minimize Ozone and aging effects.

Thanks, guys. That's what we'll do - use 303.
