Covering your TT when it's wet.

Are there any problems with covering your TT when it's raining for its winter storage?

Mould & mildew come to mind. Instructions from the cover manufacturer, will detail the best time to install the cover, most covers will vent some humidity, but a soaking wet RV is something else.

Where are you located? If in a very rainy climate, it might not dry, but if you get some dry or windy days stretched together it might dry out fine. Also, you could put the cover over the roof and keep it rolled up on the sides until the moisture has time to evaporate, then roll it down and fasten down properly.

I had to close up my TT in up state NY on Monday morning. And of course it had to be raining while I winterized it. And then put my cover on for the winter. My TT is 250 miles away from my home, and I will have to wait until spring to see if mold and mildew appear. I hope that any water on the top of the slides dry up this week of mild weather.

RV covers are not water proof and allow moisture as well as air to penetrate the material, so no. I used an RV cover for years, (54" of annual rainfall) and had no mildew anywhere. If you use a waterproof cover (plastic tarp) you will most likely experience mildew because it will restrict/prevent air flow.
