After chasing mine all over the park here in Vegas several times, I put them in the basement. Next stop is the dumpster!

Here is some pics from our MCD wheel cover install: https://picasaweb.google.com/revans3...eat=directlink

Can't say it was fun putting them on but we got it done and I think they look pretty good. Shame I understand they are no longer going to sell them.

I use a bent coat hanger to feed from one end to the other on the drive wheels. Thinking of just using the hanger and bending it through the grommets instead of messing with the ball and loop. Sorry I know I don't have a class A but seeing this, I think it applies to all that use the tire covers.

I have had good luck with sliding the connected Bungee over the top of the tire and pulling it down the back side of the tire while working the cover into position. This results in the Bungee above rather than below the axle. I think my bungee cords are 24" long. Removal is easy, just grab both sides and lift over the top of the tire. As noted in an earlier post, it is easier to do this with the coach aired up. I think my bungee cords are 24" long. I hope this helps.

I do the same thing as Chuck. Hook the bungee to the cover, then shove the bungee over the top of the tire, get cover in place then work the tied ends down to the ground. On the duals just slip the bungee between the tires. Mine stayed on in 40 mph Idaho wind. Can put on all 4 in 5 min.

I made a tool from a piece of1/2 pvc pipe .Cut a piece about 18 inces long and one piece about 8 inches long .You can shorten or lengthen to yor own taste.Join these two pieces togeather wit a 90 deg ell,then glue a coupling or an end plug on the short pipe to keep the bungee from slipping off.Works pretty slick.

Sorry Dunner,but my scanner is on the fritz,but this is so simple that you won't need a pic.I guess I should have said to use plumbing pvc as the electrical 90 has a long radious which you would not want.Just take your longer piece of pvc and your shorter piece of pvc and glue one end of each piece into your short 90.Before gluing adjust your lengths to the length that suites you,but be sure and leave the short piece long enough to stand up between your dual wheels.After getting it cut to the lengths you want,glue a coup or any kind of fitting on to the short piece just as a little insurance to keep the Bungee from slipping off .Let me know if you still need a pic and I will see if I can take one with my cell phone and upload it. Regards, RED

I install my covers then throw the bungee over the top of the tire and hook the ends together on the front side of the cover about mid tire. I made the bungees longer but work fine. The covers are black and don't even notice the black bungees. I can put all four on in five minutes with nothing but my hands, no getting on my hands and knees

I've used the chain links zip tied to the grommets.

I saw the tip in Motorhome magazine a couple of years ago.

VERY easy on/off. VERY secure.

Take care,

If you stay in Texas you'll learn to use them.

My Sky Hook helps. I took an old paint roller frame and cut off the roller part leaving a small hook with a screw on handle. That attaches very nicely to an extendable pole which I use for lots of unreachable stuff. Somebody mentioned the awning hook. I use it for that, hanging bird feeders, getting stuff under the MH (including tire cover bungee cords), etc. etc. I even saved a turtle once that was stuck and unreachable by any other means.

twoinabox, you're such a nice person. My uncle used to make turtle soup out of snappers. Damn, they're mean critters; kinda like mini gators.

tire covers

I use some broken up small patio blocks that I just wedge in near the tire. Works great so far.
