to vent or not to vent

I am unsure about cutting holes in the roof.
I have heard they can be a pain to seal up.

The hole is a 14" square and if you use care and properly clean things it won't be a problem with sealing.

IF you can route wires up there with 12 volts on them,,, you can add fans later if needed.

Home is where I park it!

The only thing I worry about when cutting or drilling a hole is what is hidden there. I have only drilled holes in the sides of my RV but I try to look behind before I drill if at all possible. There seems to be sealing products that work very good.

Sealing is no problem if you get a good sealant and do a good job of sealing.

I agree. On roofs, we use only Dicor self-leveling lap sealant (I'm an RV tech).
