Hi Aimee, sometimes the ID tag is located on the door frame by the hinge side. You have to open the door and look from the inside.

If you find it there please let me know.

Good morning, Rick and T. J.; 

Rick, thank you for providing the link to the ADCO 36042 cover. 

T. J., I am trying to attach a photographic .jpg file to this message to show the cover, and also how the 4 inch diameter 30 foot long tube supports the cover.  You can see in the photograph that the cover was being asked to do its job. 

The main point of this discussion is to show the way that the cover is supported up off the roof so that there is a slope down to the sides of the motor home for rain and snow drainage. 

Enjoy,  Ralph, Latté Land, Washington  ADCO36042Support.jpg

Have you go a pic or link to the product? Sounds like an excellent idea.

RV ROOF ONLY COVER. 

Good morning; 

Last Summer, I purchased an ADCO 36042 RV Motor Home Roof ONLY Tyvek Cover for my Winnebago Elandan WCP31RT.  It is intended for vehicles from 30 feet 1 inch to 36 feet long.  It more than covers my 32 foot 4 inch Winnebago Elandan WCP31RT.

I also purchased three (3) 10 foot lengths of 4 inch diameter Schedule 40 PVC pipe, and two 4 inch End Caps and two 4 inch PVC Couplings which were put together to form a 30 foot long tube that was placed on the roof on top of the air conditioner covers to serve as a ridge to support the center of the ADCO roof cover and allow a slope down to the sides of the motor home for rain and snow drainage. 

This cover works well, and it does keep the rain and snow off the roof and reduces the amount of Ultra Violet radiation that the roof receives.  And, with the scalloped cutouts along the side edges, there is clearance for the side door to open easily to go in and out of the motor home. 

This product works well for me, and it had a surprising side effect I had not expected.  I do have a small 750 Watt electrical heater in the Winnebago to help keep the humidity under control and keep it slightly warm.  I found that in the outside temperature range of 30 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the inside of the Winnebago was five (5) degrees warmer with the roof cover on it in comparison with the temperature inside without the roof cover over the roof.  There is a recording thermometer in the Winnebago.  By putting the outside covers over the windows, I think the heat loss can be reduced even more, and the inside temperature raised also.

That temperature benefit was not expected.  I am glad that I did it. 

Enjoy;   Ralph, Latté Land, Washington

Sorry James, Been busier than a one legged paper hangar in an ass kicking contest. Not to mention sicker than a dog. Sorry we missed you due this year. Looks like you guys had a blast according to Tiny Tina.
