Question on covering and a few other things

Hello all,
My question is on a TT cover. We are new to a TT but not to all this. We own a 38' Class A also. However my question is the wife and I are putting this TT unit at an off road park (for SXS and ATV's) in NC. They get maybe a couple inches of snow a year. We also will go down there in most months maybe not in Jan and Feb but most the rest of the year we will be in it at least 1 to 2 weekends a month. Seams like a pain to cover it to uncover all the time. Any thoughts? Should I put wheel covers on them. Also when we leave any advice is there an advantage to bringing the slides in or just leave them out? Thanks on any advice.

I've never done what you plan. But I would cover the wheels and tires, bring in the slides and close the vents. Turn off the gas, and if you can, remove the battery and take it home to keep it charged. Run a cable lock through the rims. I would not do a cover, any wind will be an issue if you are not there. Dust between the cover and the TT will buff the finish.

All great suggestions thanks.

X2.
Why spend your fun time putting and pulling a cover.
As far as the battery mentioned above, if you are using the TT every couple weeks, it should hold a charge well enough, even in very cold weather. Or invest in a small solar charger to keep it charged. Heck, I don't even like to cover our pretty big 5er for winter - and unfortunately wont this year as a mouse family decided that our once used $$$ cover would be a fine place to raise their young this past summer even though they had to get in a covered plastic bin
