RV Covers in snowy areas.

Wondering if anyone has experience with an RV cover that functions well in a snowy climate. Pro's and con's? What brand and model of cover?

If the rig is winterized you don't need a cover. The fact is, most RV manufactures don't recommend them and may even not honor your warranty. Covers are hard to handle, trap moisture - even the vented ones - and will cause damage to the paint.
Mouse proofing is important and keeping your batteries warm and charged. Cover your tires to help keep the snow from packing into the wheels.
If you have the room, you could build a open shed or RV port to keep most of the snow load off the roof.
Hope you have a mild winter. (My son lives in Lakeville.)

1 state north of you...! I DO use a cover - this will be my 4th winter with an Adco cover. Since the rig sits for close to 5-plus months, I find it does help protect it. Even with the cover I use a "snow broom" to keep the snow load on the roof to a minimum. If it was just snow, I'd be less concerned than the freeze/thaw and ice we get around here throughout the winter season.
