I had some snap on covers made for the vents and shower stall that match the ceiling. When the temperature get down low enough I'll cut some foam or buy those from CW to go inside the vents. The covers will hold them in. Probably 2-3" foam for the shower to be held in by the cover.

Get the form cushions that go in the overhead vents. They're about $6,00 a piece and not only work for cold weather, but also help when running your air conditioning. I got mine at my local RV Dealer, but CW also has them....

3 years ago when we spent the winter in freezing weather I had a big problem with condensation from my Fantastic Fan. I called them and asked of they had a solution. They sent me a replacement, double pane, dome. No charge. No problems after that.

Our bathroom has a standard fan. I used a piece of regular 6" wall insulation and then that plastic window sealer sold at Home Depot or Lowe's to seal it off.

This has me a bit confused. I'm concerned about having the motor home too air-tight. I've wondered about leaving a ceiling vent open even in the coldest weather. With two people breathing all night, wouldn't CO2 build up as well as moisture on the inside of the windows and walls? I'd like to seal the vents, but it doesn't seem like the ideal solution. What do you think?

Personally I wouldn't seal up my bath vent with anything that's not quickly/easily removable. I still want to be able to vent out bathroom odors as well as shower steam. The same goes with my vent in the galley, steam from the stovetop as well as any potential smoke.

Just my two cents...

Roof Vent Cushion

I picked up one of these on etsy and they did a custom job in a light grey so that it blended with the décor and didn't contrast much with the ceiling.

We use the foil backed fuzzy ones and an added is the wife likes it so dark to sleep you can't find your own nose. These three and the cover for the shower sky light and we are dark and warmer or cooled as needed. Although in cold weather we do get condensation on the wind screen but it needs cleaning anyway from cooking grease. As far as CO2 I don't think any MH is that tight because of window vents. refer vents and slide seals.

I guess I'm the one and only with self made covers. Use Reflectix Insulation cut one inch bigger on all sides for a snug fit it into the vents. Also cover the bedroom windows pretty much year round and have covers for the living area/windshield if I venture out into really cold periods. I also keep the shower skylight covered most of year. Helps just as much in the summer keeping the heat if the day out.
