Propane tank cover too short.

I recently ordered a propane dual tank cover for my rv assuming I had 20 lb tanks. Unfortuantly the tanks turned out to be 30 lb tanks, and yes thats what I get for assuming, lol. The hard plastic cover will slide down over the tanks with no problem, but, there is approximatly 5 to 6 inches of tank showing at the bottom. Will this pose any hazard to the tanks? I feel the main purpose is to protect the valves and hoses anyways, though the cover is not cosmetically appealling as would be if all of the tank area was covered. Any comments appreciated.

not going to hurt anything but might let air get underneath while driving and want to pull it off. Mostly a cosmetic and valve, regulator protector thing.
