Cypherian has what I think is the neatest mod to take care of this:

I thought there were a couple of holes on the bottom of the cover for a tie down, haven't done that yet.

Though my problem is the fit with the storage box, propane cover and the electric hitch jack. Sounds like others have reshaped the cover to flatten it out so it doesn't require removing the propane cover each time you want in the storage box.

Good to have the trailers! Dave did great job getting them to us!

We have a 19 with all three. No issues getting into the storage box, lifting the tank cover, or with the power jack clearance.

When we picked up, Dennis suggested the bungee cord. Ann Marie had a bungee cord out of the truck and attached to the cover in about 30 seconds

Yes, that is what I did way back in 2012 on my first Escape - (now belongs to Cypherian) and continued on BlackJack. Not as a security measure but to keep it from coming off while on the highway as it slips easily on and off. For those who have trailer delivery, the tank covers ride inside and you install once delivery is complete.
