Winter is about to visit us here in Kansas City. Last week had a great last trip to Roaing River, Eureka Springs and Silver Dollar City. But now the Adventurer is up on its jack stands and winterized. Does anyone know of a product that can be sprayed over the coach as a protectant over the winter months.

Thanks

Sprayed? What sort of protection are you looking for?

The surface just needs to be "waxed" with a good quality product. The product need not actually contain wax these days - there are good synthetics. I like ProtectAll because it is easy to apply, but here are other brands. A good automative "wax" is fine too.

If you want more than just general dirt protection, you could have the entire rig encased in a vinyl wrap, like they do for boats in winter storage. A marina could probably arrange it or put you in touch with an outfit that does that.

The best covers are made with a Dupont Tyvek material. Tyvek keeps air and the elements from penetrating but it also lets whatever is inside breathe. I don't think I'd want to seal up an RV that tight. I just wax the finish and shovel off the snow if it gets too deep.

A good cleaning and wax is the best care for the exterior of an RV.

Do you guys not advise using the covers you see in catalogs?

Morning, there is a big debate about covers also. Some, perhaps most, of us prefer just to leave the RV uncovered to let moisture evaporate rather than be trapped beneath a cover all winter. There is also concern about the cover rubbing on the RV finish. I tried covering mine for a few years but it was more work than it was worth for me. So now for the last 10 years I just winterize it, wax or polish on it, full tank of gas with a stablizer, and leave it in a safe place where I can see it.
