To cover a 34' Tiffin in the winter in Oregon or not?

We have purchased our first MH moving from TT. We lover our 32SA! We have always covered our TT with a winter cover, never have had any damage to the unit as far as mold, mildew, etc. with buying a quality cover. But, we can't decide if we should cover the MH or not. With running the generator and the motor monthly etc. We do plan to use the MH a time or two in the winter, and leave in Feb. for the winter trip. I am concerned with reviews of "chafing" damage that may be caused. I do know, that at the least we need to cover the air conditioners, and remove snow if we do get any, regardless if it is covered or not (according to dealers service dept.)

Any thoughts or advice?

Hi Julie! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sorry I can't help with your question. We southerners don't know much about all that ice and snow! Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I've been covering my RVs for years. Never had any problems with chaffing or rubbing. Installing and removing the cover is a true PITA but worth it in my opinion. Would I prefer covered inside storage, sure. It's just not an option. Covers don't seem to last more than 3 years regardless so get the cheap ones and replace as needed.
