Trailer covers

So I have had my cover for about 2 years but not sure I am installing it correctly. I don't tighten the straps that go under the trailer but should I? My cover has straps across the front and back and 3 or 4 that go under and tie the sides together. Should those be tight or is it just to keep the cover from coming off?
I put pieces of foam tubing on the sharp edges and any where else that might rip when the wind blows and the cover might flap in the wind. I noticed this year when I removed it there were some rubbing marks on the side and back where it moved during the winter.

Most of them I've seen tighten them up. We did when we had a ski boat.
