MH bras.
Car bras.
Etal.

They are nose mittens that you must remove so you can clean the nose and clean the inside of the nose mitten so you have a pristine nose that is rarely seen except to clean it so it will never look bad even though it is rarely seen but it may help your rig hold value even though it will not.

So if you are not going to look at the nose why not leave it covered?

Just kidding! Take it off. No wait....

Bra's are only useful for older women who have been jogging way past their prime.

They are not for RV's.

I use a clear bra and it can't be removed. Front end still looks like new after 8yrs.

braless

I started up the Bounder, went and topped off the tanks, put the additive in the tank and removed the bra.
I will wash and wax the front weather permitting the next day or so.

I have always preferred the no bra look. Actually tried a bra once, but it resulted in a lot of chafing ...on the hood of my car.

X2 on the chafing. 500 miles and abrasion was a problem on the hood of the toad... threw away the bra never to be used again!

You don't want any junk and moisture stuck behind it all winter.
I bought mine with a bra on it an it looks bad under it. I would only put it on when I am going on a trip and take it off wax on wax off when I got home.

Definitely take it off and don't use it till you leave the house. Mine was left on and when I bought it it was a selling point whether to buy it or not because of the damage behind it.

We use a bra for travel and remove it when we're going to stay for over 24 hours. We travel 15,000 to 25,000 miles a year and of that 300-500 miles is on dirt. Had a bra on a 2005 Diesel Bounder and when we turned it in on a 2008 Allegro Bus it looked like new. (75,000+) The Bus had Diamond Shield and I pulled it at about 15 months. I can fix stone dings, but not under Diamond Shield. We peeled the DS, put a bra on the Bus and turned it in for a 2013 43' Bus in January. It had about 75,000 on it and looked like new. Same amount of running on dirt. New bus was special ordered without Diamond Shield and I put a bra on it. We now have 22,600 on it and it still looks like new, of course. We just got back from Alaska so we also ran this one on dirt.

A bra works good if you remove it and keep it clean. If you don't do either or both, you'll have problems. As I said I can fix stone chips, and you will take an occasional chip, even with the bra, but it'll be repairable. When the paint chips under the Diamond Shield, the whole piece of plastic has to be removed, sometimes with more paint going with it and then it has to be put back on after the ding and other paint is repaired.
