I am not using a cover and my T/T will be parked outside in the cold and snow. Does anyone recommend covering the A/C roof unit or something over the vent covers? The covers seem a bit on the frail side.....

I used an Adco cover for 12 years before we went fulltime. Saved a lot of roof damage.

Here is another active thread on covers.
To RV cover or not to RV cover

And if you search on "Adco" you will see more.

Back when we had no inside storage, I used a medium-weight farm tarp purchased from a nearby farm supply store. I bought the size that would cover the side too down below the windows. I added double the amount of grommets and used elastic cords to keep the tarp taut at all times. I never found any wear spots from tarp movement by wind. Each tarp would last 3 years, once in a while 4. The air conditioner and vents will maintain an air space on the roof adequate to prevent mold/mildew.
