Your location shows 'Northeast', but not Northeast where
, so I had no way of knowing. This would be a helpful detail to provide. Where are you located?
The best way to avoid cracking is keeping it out of direct Sunlight as much as possible. While it's true that marine vinyl has UV inhibitors, it can still be damaged if exposed.
