More robust Air Conditioner Covers?

Every year I find I must purchase a new ADCO air conditioner cover for my RV's Air Conditioner. Bit is tree debris, tiny pine cones, etc. fall from nearby trees and puncture holes in the cover. Then water gets in through the holes and mold starts growing in the padding inside the AC cover material. I try to repair these, but once molds gets inside the outer layer, it deteriorates quickly.

My Question for those on this discussion list: Is there a better, more robust cover available other than the ADCO cover I buy at camping world?

I know the place I work sells Maxx-Air A/C covers. They have a lifetime warranty, so if it does break, you can get a free replacement.
Here's a link:

I'm not clear on why you need a cover at all. The a'c and its shroud are designed to be out in the weather. If you are worried about damage to the plastic shroud by falling limbs or ice, put a piece of plywood over it.

I would not park under the trees had ice storm and pine limbs fell, four 1" to 3" found the pop up roof and larger ones came down where MH was parked a few minutes after I moved the MH at 3 AM.
They do not make a shroud strong enough.
Forget the AC how about your roof.

For the record, I was not speaking of the AC Shroud, but the ADCO soft cover I purchase at CAmping World. My intent was to keep out unnecessary moisture intrusion, bugs, pine needles, and other debris from getting into the air vents on the sides of the shroud. Unfortunately such debris falling from neighboring trees sometimes cuts the soft vinyl cover on this ADCO product, water then gets in and saturates the soft inner lining and when it gets warm serious mold starts to grow in this lining.

From reading responses here and on my Trek Tracks forum I have come to the conclusion that I should just discard the soft cover and not worry about it.
