» How do you install an RV cover?

RV Covers can be installed WITHOUT climbing on the roof of your RV by utilizing stepladders. Depending on the vehicle, you may be able to save time by climbing on the roof. Below you will find a description of the process as told by one of our customers. ADCO takes no responsibility for the liability involved in climbing on the roof. Please note that extreme caution should be taken. RV Cover installation gets easier with practice. Most full size coaches can be covered and secured in under 10 minutes.

  • Place the Cover at the rear of the R.V., next to the ladder. Find the front of the cover on the ground.
  • Lower all antennas. PAD ANY AND ALL SHARP EDGES and sharp corners. Pad anything that could snag or tear a hole in the cover. Remove the antenna if possible.
  • Pull the front of the cover up with you as you climb up the ladder.. Once on top of the R.V., pull as much as you can towards the top, creating a pile of cover next to your feet. Once the pile gets big enough, stretch it towards the front of the RV.
  • Once a strip of cover is created, start at the front by pacing the cover over the corners, working your way towards the back, allowing the cover to drape over the sides of the R.V.
  • Once you are at the rear of the R.V., place the cover over the corner (opposite of the ladder). Climb down the ladder pulling the cover down with you. Put ladder cap (if needed) in pace prior to covering the rear bumper.
  • Finally secure cover into place by throwing the long straps underneath the R.V. and connecting them with the short strap parallel to it. ADCO covers are equipped with grommets on reinforced tabs to take up as much extra material as possible. We suggest you use rope or string and DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! Do Not use Bungee cords a they can pull grommets out of the cover. Throw long straps under coach and buckle. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! OVER TIGHTENED STRAPS PULL THE COVER TOO TIGHT AND THE SEAMS CAN CAUSE FRICTION DAMAGE TO RUBBER ROOFS!
