Covers for Airstream Air Conditioners

I have been told to NEVER cover an Airstream with one a fabric protective cover like to see on other kinds of trailers because it will ruin the Airstream finish. What about covers for just the Air Conditioners such as: ADCO 3021 White RV Air Conditioner Cover sold by AMAZON? Are there any advantages or disadvantages in covering just the air conditioner?

The best way to protect an air conditioner shroud is to paint it. The plastic used to form an A/C shroud will degrade in sunlight and become brittle. Painting the shroud protects it from UV light both when the trailer is stored and when it is in use. Unlike a fabric cover that only protects against UV when the unit is stored.

The only benefit to a fabric shroud cover is to keep dead leaves, bugs, and other detritus out of the air conditioner. But if you're going to get up on your roof to apply or remove a fabric cover, you could get up on the roof to clean out the shroud instead so that detritus doesn't build up in the first place.
I thought getting old would take longer!
