    1988 Genesis 1. Weber 9857 cover

    Just got my new Weber cover today. And I'm a little surprised to see two vents running the length of the grill. As well as no velcro enclosures at the bottom. I was wondering if anyone has had any success with this style of cover or if you have moisture problems or does it blow off in a wind storm.

    I used to have a similar Weber cover for a Genesis 2, with a vented area over the handle and I think one on the back side of the fire box, near the top maybe?. It never blew off.

    I have a very similar cover for my Silver B. At the beginning I wondered about these vents as well. But they don't let that much water in and the ventilation seems to be good. Mine has been sitting outside for around 10 years and hardly has any rust. The non vented covers cause the grill to sweat and build up of stagnant moisture which will cause rust.
    Where did you find yours? I am looking for a 9859.
