A Couple Newbie Questions

Hello! My wife and I just bought our first RV... a Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22R. I can't wait to hit the road! I have a couple seemingly easy questions that I'm struggling to answer, however...
1. Bedding: We have a 80 x 54 bed in the back and a 57 x 95 bed above the cab. I'm at a complete loss as to which side mattress pad/sheets to get.
2. Wax/Touch-Up Paint: There are a few scuffs here and there and one spot i'd love to use touch-up paint on. First, any wax out there folks recommend? Second, where can I get touch-up paint for the tuscan gold rig? I can't find it on the Winnebago site and the local dealership doesn't carry it.
3. Finally... To cover or not to cover? I'm getting a sense that a cover doesn't really help all that much (and may even scuff the rig). I live in Southern California so the occasional hot day is really the only weather we get. Thus, I'm leaning toward not covering. Anyone have a different opinion?

Sorry for the newbie Qs... Big investment and I'd like to get it right.

Congrats on the new rig. Im sure you'll enjoy it.
Can't help with the sheet issue
I use a wax that is spray on by Meguiars. Every one has a favorite. If you're going to leave oit in the sun wax often.
Call Winnebago Customer Service with your Winne serial #. They can five you the paint code. Take the code to an automotive paint store for a small quantity. Tell them how you're going to use it so they will know what to give you.
We keep ours in a garage between trips. It helps keep the inside cooler so that the plastic doesn't discolor. Keep iot under cover if you can. I don't know about the cloth type covers.
