    Routing the Battery Charger Cable


    My concern is that routing the battery charger cable over the driver window (fully closed) would, over time, damage the window seal.

    The alternative, leaving the window partially down, will expose the interior to dust.

    I am wondering how you guys deal with this? Is there an alternative?

    Thanks!

    I dont even bother to put the top up

    I use this tonneau cover when I park or even store the car. Yes some dust can get in this way, but I try to limit my use of the top.

    OK to keep the top down for long periods?

    Also, I know the manual says the hard top should be removed when storing the vehicle for extend period.

    How about the soft top? What's the ideal state, open or close, for extended periods?

    I leave the top down on my 2001 99.9% of the time.

    I have done that for years with no issues. I personally prefer it without the top - hard/soft.

    I make sure that I clean and polish the plastic window and put on the blanket. I put the top up maybe once a year when I polish the window. My rear window looks like I just got the car off the showroom floor.

    I believe that making sure the window is clean prior to using the blanket has been the key.
