I use the metal rod, that is in most RVs, for pulling down awnings. It works great for reaching the tire cover tie down behind the tire (especially between the duals).

One point I didn't see mentioned.

With tire covers that go over and around the tire ....

If you are parked in the west or southwest, use care when removing them.

Critters, including snakes, like to crawl in for comfort.... don't ask how I know!

Well.... here are some more ideas. Yes, slip them on before dumping the bags or putting out the slides for ease of sliding on. Go buy you some dowels that will slide through the grommets on the bottom (tape up one end so it won't go all the way through and get yourself some clips to snap on the other ends after you slide through behind the tire). This works really neat between the duals. So easy! And you know they can't blow away.
