<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">We had two vent covers installed on our Winnie this weekend at Camping World. Now we can leave the roof vents open without worrying about rain. We had the Max Air vent installed, we like it because it has screening so we don't have to worry about wasps trying to nest there. The total was only $75 for 2 vents installed. Not bad. My hubby really doesn't like heights so anytime he can have someone else climb up on that roof he is happy </span>

That's great! This is our second MH and we've done the same thing on both! We don't have to worry about wasps tho...our worry is birds. We would never be without those covers. We leave our vents open all the time along with a window in the back cracked open, which makes for a great air flow! Have never had a stale or musty smell inside and I'm sure it's because we do this! You can also leave the vents open while driving now!

They are a great add-on! Enjoy!

We have three of the larger MaxAir vents and really like them. At first we had just two of the bigger ones, with one of the smaller more square ones on the bathroom vent. After two years, the cheaper one was showing cracks around the screw attachments so I replaced it with another of the larger ones.

Just beware that even with the screens, the vent covers are NOT sealed to the vents. There is a small gap space all the way around the bottom except for where the mounting brackets are. We still occasionally get pine needles or similar "stuff" on top of the inner vent/fan screen. If the fan cannot flow it out, it is easy to remove just by removing the inner screen. I find I need to remove the inner screens to clean them once or twice a year anyway. Bugs can get under the covers too (but not inside the RV of course), but are much less likely to do so than with the covers that do not have screens. And the covers do make it much less likely you will get water through the vent during a rain! We have sometimes felt a little splatter inside if the wind is just right while it is raining.

I also like the fact that the vent cover provides some protection to the vent lid, slowing weathering of it a bit, and you can open a roof vent or two while driving without putting a strain on the vent lid.
