Warning: Installation is best done with two people. Never install on a windy day or when your vehicle roof is wet or icy. Please take care whenever you are on a ladder or the roof.
To install the cover, proceed as follows:
- Cover any sharp edges on your vehicle with tape that could wear against your cover. Lower any roof antennas.
- Unroll the cover next to your travel trailer with the SafeGuard logo on the cover facing the outside and to the front of your vehicle. Unzip the side and rear panels.
- On smaller trailers your cover can be installed with ladders or by pulling it over the sides with tie ropes. (Be sure not to snag the cover on the top). On larger trailers it’s easiest to install your cover from the roof. Carefully climb up on the roof pulling the cover front with you. Lower the front of your cover down over the front of your trailer then carefully move toward the back pulling the cover and letting it fall down the sides of your trailer. Climb down the rear ladder and locate the ladder cap. (The cap helps keep the top of the ladder from stressing the cover). Fit it over the ladder top and attach it to the rungs with the hook and loop straps. Now pull the back end of the cover down the back of the trailer.
- Zip all the cover panels closed and pull the elasticized corners down over both bumpers of your trailer.
- Locate the hook and loop straps on the upper part of the flaps that fold in under the nose of your trailer. Adjust them to fit your cover to the exact length of the nose of your vehicle.
- Once the length of the nose of the cover is correctly adjusted, locate one of the supplied ropes and the D-rings sewn in along the flaps that fold in under the nose of your trailer. Tighten the rope and tie it off onto the D-rings located opposite each other. Repeat with the lower D-ring.
- Tie an end of the supplied rope onto one of the D-rings along the bottom hem. Put a small rock in the provided toss bag, close the top and tie the free end of the rope to the bag D-ring. Now toss the bag and rope under your trailer to the D-ring on the opposite side. Take the rope off the bag and, allowing enough to make a knot, cut it off and tie it to the D-ring. Repeat with the other D-rings. To keep the rope ends from fraying you can carefully melt the ends with a match or lighter.
- Adjust the strap length on the white tension panels across the front and back to fit your trailer. Don’t over tighten—the straps should be snug, not drum tight. To attach the straps into the side-release buckles just insert the clip into the buckle. To release the buckle press the buttons on both sides and pull the clip out of the buckle.
Your cover can be unzipped for access to the passenger side and rear. The panels can be rolled up and held in place with the hook and loop straps toward the top of each panel. A handy storage bag is provided. To fit it in the bag fold your cover and roll the cover tightly rather than stuffing it. Never store a wet cover in the storage bag or confined area as the cover can be damaged by mildew.
Please Note! Your cover is for storage only. Do not attempt to travel with the cover on, or partially on. Contact with hot surfaces such as exhaust systems will damage the cover.
Caution! Always take care when walking on the roof of your RV. SafeGuard Covers and our parent company takes no responsibility for accidents or damage resulting from walking on the roof of the RV. Avoid walking on the cover because you may slip and fall. Whenever possible, use two people to install the cover. Do not attempt to install the cover in windy conditions.
