Question Question on tarping/new to Keystone (Hideout)

Just joined the Keystone club. I sold my old Forest River Wildwood, and moved to the good guys side of Keystone. Fell in love with a 2014 Keystone Hideout 27DBS, got a killer deal, and bought it after selling my Wildwood. Much, much nicer and better built trailer than my 08' Wildwood.

My question is I put my adco cover on it after I got it home with the new trailer and it fits fine, but I now have to deal with the four permanent gutter extensions that my Hideout has. These gutters stick out about 3". I put a swimming noodle over each one to keep it from tearing my cover, but it just seems the tarp puts a lot of pressure on the two back gutters and I don't want it to break them. Any tricks to release this pressure other than cutting slits in my cover where the gutters are?
The reason I have it covered is because I am not building my carport until this summer and I am crazy weird about not getting water damage.(my first TT I owned had water damage from previous owner and I had to fix it...NOT FUN!!)

I've also used swimming noodles to cover the gutter spouts and haven't had any issues with them as yet. I've cut and trimmed noodle pieces which are wrapped around the spout with tape and no broken spouts to date. I know about your concern regarding the increase pressure on those spouts but, touch wood, mine have stood up over a period of 3 -4 years.
