Be glad it just melted. At least it was not made of a material that caught on fire and burned up your RV.

Not funny but,hahahaha....You pulled a Jayco(Me)...

I did something similar with my cover..Left the cable jacks on it when I put the cover on and the fraid wire cable put a nice little slash in it from the wind..Has not gotten any worse which says alot for the covers we have...

I use a small 750/1000/1500 watt electric heater in it mostly at home..750 watts makes quite a difference yet is easy on the electric bill..

Make the hole round and finish the edges and will look like it is a cover upgrade :-)

Boy no kidding. I'm grateful that's all the damage that was done.

I think everyone has to pull a boner once in a while. I'm just glad it wasn't worse.

Electricity is cheap where I live. Actually, its free. [emoticon]

My cover came with an extra piece of material for patching. I have not made that mistake but did melt the back of an ice maker that was on a table in front of that same exhaust. Still makes ice luckly. Before I put my cover on I cut holes in tennis balls and tape them over each eaves trough downspout. Third Canadian winter with the same Adco tarp now.
First time I was putting it on though I stepped backwards onto the washroom/shower skylight. My right leg went right through & almost made it to the toilet before my hips got jammed. Whenever I go up there now I stay ON MY KNEES.

If we're all honest, every one of us has pulled similar stupid stunts now and then. Give yourself the obligatory dope slap and carry on. (And boy, were you lucky!)

As hard as you try, sometimes the best of plans are laid to rest. Glad there wasn't a fire.
