Putting winter cover on Ollie II

You could use the search bar in the upper right corner. The subject has been discussed a few times in the past, but I am sure others will chime in and repeat their method of installing and taking off.

Make sure you cover the sharp edges, like the solar collectors so they do not tear the cover.

OK - assuming the lighter one:

1.  as dewdev points out above, cover/pad all sharp edges.  The solar panels are the biggest and next would be the bumper.  Pool noodles are your friend for both of these.

1a. don't forget to remove the antenna of the rearview camera if you have one.

2.  lay out the cover on the ground with the front of the cover at the front of the Ollie and the back at the back.

3.  Either get up on a ladder or use "painter's poles" with tennis balls on the ends to protect the cover (thanks to Patriot for this "painter pole idea) to feed the cover onto the roof and over obstacles that are on the roof.  Adjust the cover using the poles or while on the ladder both front to back and side to side.

4.  Batten down the hatches.

5.  Grab a adult beverage an admire your work.
