    I bought a tarp for my Jayco 05 18F this year. It's a 10 mil 20 x 16. I figured it should drape over the the sides about 18 inches w/ ac and skylight. This should allow air to circulate under it and keep water and oak leaves from pooling on the roof in the low spots. which there always low spots. Presently there are no leaks but the Dicor and the roof are getting older. To cold and wet to Dicor now. I know there are 2 camps on tarping. I figured it was some cheap insurance before the snow flies. Don't give a damn about the tarp, hope it will last a season. Comments welcome

    I do the same with mine. Throw a tarp over it with a few pool noodles underneath to allow for ventilation, mostly to keep the leaves off of it and keep it cleaner.
