RVing - How to keep eBike dry while on rack

Ready to order a RadRover or RadCity to take along as I tour the country in my RV. Since the bike will travel in a bike rack on the rear of my class B RV, is there anything I should do to protect it from weather while driving? I never seen to see bikes covered on bike racks and when I do, they are wrapped with beautiful blue tarps that are shredding apart. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

Thank you

As long as you store the battery in a safe space like your RV (probably not necessary even for this), there should be no need to cover up the bike. I live in Oregon where we get lots of winter rain and have never had a problem with a rack on the back of my car. I suppose I can imagine a horrendous rain and some water getting into places like your axle and bottom bracket, but I doubt that will ever be a problem. If you look at cars and RVs with bikes on racks in the back in Oregon, you just don't see any cover. Soooo, don't worry, enjoy the ebike when you get to camp!
