Winter Storage - Cover refrigerator vents?

I'm putting the trailer away for the winter - don't have a garage or full cover. I am planning to cover the AC unit. should I be covering the refrigerator vents on the roof? Should the other outside vents be covered to keep out the snow?

Unlike AC covers I haven't found covers for the refrigerator vents. I could try using magnetic strips to hold on covers for the furnace and water heater. The refrigerator vents are plastic. I'll try covering the roof vent with plastic sheet held on with a bungee cord under the vent cap unless there is a better idea out there.

I too am preparing for storage. I blocked the fridge vents then thought I should leave something open for ventilation so unplugged the fridge roof vent. I have a good quality cover. Any comments ?

Winter Storage - Cover refrigerator vents?

Why would you want to cover the fridge vent yes the Ac if you don't use a cover but no need to cover the fridge vent should just purchase a cover for the unit then. Camping world sells covers just to go over roof think they came out last year I never seen one before. I would rather that then the full cover I bough
