Well after finally procrastinating for a month I had just finished putting up a Costco 10 x 20 shelter cover, now the machine is out of the sun when were not using it. I can even leave the car on its trailer with plenty of room to spare, and it will give me shelter for when I need to work on it. I used some cement blue screws to secure it to the patio. I would include a pic however it won't pull up. either way the price was good and its well worth its installation issues.
