Re: Spare Tire Cover

You can always go with a Continental Kit:
http://www.discountvantruck.com/rvva...stirecover.htm. Truly a one and done solution. Paint the center however you wish. Padlock the stainless steel ring and it would be next to impossible for someone to steal the spare.

Re: Spare Tire Cover

Hi: Donna D...Now that sounds like a permenent solution to "Ring around the COVER". A sign shop could cut a new peel'n'stick Maple leaf for those of us who take pride in flying it. Alf

I am hesitant to use any strong cleaner on that tire cover. I am afraid that it may damage the material.

Jerry - ours also had the plastic bag covering the tire. The same was true with our Scamp than the same staining happened to it. I thought that it was due to our fabric shed material rubbing against it, but apparently not.

Donna, while awaiting that big win, I sure appreciate all the "fiberglass wisdom" you provide us here.

Re: Spare Tire Cover

For anybody who wants to prevent the spare tire from making black marks on your cover in the first place, here's an idea. When we bought our pop-up something like 15 years ago, the dealership wrapped the spare tire in aluminum foil, before putting on the cover. This worked great and was a nice touch that we appreciated.
