to bra or not to bra

I have the Bounder all ready for winter and was wondering if I should leave the bra on or take it off and store it for the winter.

Long Term Storage

If our Bounder is going into storage for more than a couple of weeks I take the bra off. (this doesn't happen all that often)

If it's likely to rain I take the bra off.

I always wash the front end before I put it back on.

I would be concerned leaving it on. Road gunk dust and dirt will collect under it. Add moister and yuck.
Bras are to protect from Road Sanding and Rock Chipping.
I would remove and clean both the front of your coach and I would wash and thoroughly dry the bra.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

If stored indoor, I would take it off, clean and wax, replace. If stored outside, I would remove clean and wax area and leave off. I don't believe you will hit many bugs or gravel pieces while in storage. lol.

I believe the proper thing you are suppose to do is remove it when ever you get where you are going, so yes take it off.

Take it off, take it all off!

You don't want any junk and moisture stuck behind it all winter.
