Adco products cover

Purchased an Adco cover last Nov. for the camper. Went to unzip the cover and 2 out of the 4 zippers would not zip back up. Now, the cover is basically new. I've probably used the zippers 5-6 times over the course of the winter. After calling Adco, I was told how to "repair" the zippers, with WD-40 and a set of pliers. Has anyone who has one of these covers encountered this? I was concerned that I would have to do this more often that not, so Adco gave me an option for a one time replacement under warranty. I hate to use the warranty so soon (6 months), but without the zippers working, it makes the cover useless. Still waiting on an email from Adco with directions on how to start the process.

Yes, but the cover is the better option because where the camper is parked during the winter months.

The covers can actually do more damage. They slide and shift, wearing the top layer of the gelcoat.

Your in warm climate, if you don't mind me askin' , why the cover?

Try to keep the pine needles and such off the camper.

Your trading one problem for another. Those covers wear the gel coat where they make contact with the trailer. I'm up north and have to store indoors with the harsh winters, but I would imagine a couple of really good coats of wax and you're better off without the cover. The problem is even the best covers loosen over time and rub against the finish. Also, they tend to mold underneath during periods of high humidity. Do the pine droppings really do that much damage?

I have also heard they can break your gutter spouts and cause a leak.

Wow, these responses are surprising to me. I know nothing about RVs, but I was thinking about getting a cover for our 2016 Super Lite because of the harsh WI winters. Is there anything that I can put on the camper over the winter? Should I at least cover the AC unit? I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to add a question someone else's thread, I'm new to the forum world.

A AC cover is fine.

You are doing fine so far.

If you can find inside storage, that's the best.
Just be a little choosey about what you park it in for the winter. Some farmers pole shed that is half full of hay or straw, will more then likely have an ample supply of rodents.
