My old E2 during the winter of 2006 when I did not have a cover.
The wooded deck was covered with snow and so was the AC unit on top of the roof. Fortunately I had a cover over the generator but it was suffering from the sun's UV rays. This is was why I decided to cover the PUP.
The uncovered PUP from the rear. Note my neighbours boat is covered by a tarp.
When covered, water would accumulate in the area between the tool box & the generator as well as between the generator and the side rails. Hence I needed some type of support to prevent this from happening.
I cut a section out of a 4 by 8 foot plywood sheet so that it was supported by the tool box and the generator hand rails. Not seen - are two 2 by 4 inch boards that I added between the end of the plywood and the end of the front aluminum rails.
ADCO cover supported by the plywood and board.
ADCO cover from the front of PUP. This cover is breathable and will allow water to evaporate from inside the PUP.
Cover from the left side of the PUP. Note I decided to cover the tires also.
Cover from the back of the PUP
The PUP covered by the snow storm of March 2008. Note that my neightbours boats as well as a Motorhome are now all covered.
