The West Coast and Covers
Hi all, my apologies if there has been a discussion on this topic before, but I did a search and did not find what I was looking for.
So we will be parking our Escape 19 on our front driveway. We donít have the luxury of a high entrance garage, carport or have access to a barn. I have bought the cover that Escape sells and plan to use it. Here are my questions:
1. Is the consensus that covering is best? I have heard that if you keep a good wax on it and just wash it a few times over the winter that is better. The argument against covering is that it traps moisture under the cover and you get mold.
2. Do you only use the cover for the winter or for any time of the year if you donít plan to use the trailer for any length of time?
3. Iíve heard that many that use a cover also wrap a rope or strap around the mid section. I assume this is to better protect the cover in the wind.
Anyways, any thoughts on these newbie questions would be much appreciated.
