It's been covered elsewhere, so you really do need to search. Lots of people have shared what does or doesn't work, and there's no point in getting too far into it here when it's already covered.
That said, for sealing window seams (indoor & outdoor) and door seams (outdoor), I used green painter's tape successfully, after a quick wipe. viewtopic.php?f=277&t=56127&p=848574&hilit=rv+logo+cover#p848574
But, in a strong wind, painter's tape outside may not hold.
If you're going for Foil-sided Bubble-wrap (or other covering material) taped over the windows on the outside (heat rejection), you want gaffer's tape to be sure it holds. Both to hold and to not damage.
Inside, green painter's tape so you don't have residue and least chance of damaging interior surfaces.
Note that green painter's tape is NOT the Delicate Surface very pale green painter's tape; that will not hold sufficiently.
I've not used the blue. But some have used the blue freezer tape with the same results I get from the green painter's tape, except there are some reports of it going gooey above 95F.viewtopic.php?f=286&t=54180&start=60#p945038
