Roof Vents

Could I get some opinions on these roof vents.
My concern is that anything lying on the rubber roof material should have something to protect the rubber.
These vents have to vibrate a certain amount don't they?
The installation seems easy enough and there is no drilling into the roof.
But!

My thoughts are to place Dycor tape under the area where contact is made.
my roof seems to be in great shape but a little extra protection can't hurt, or
can it?

I don't have that particular cover but my MH has a Maxx Air 950 cover and a Fan-tactic Ultrabreeze vent cover. The Maxx Air bolts through the sides of the vent housing and floats above the roof. The Fantastic uses 4 of the screw holes through the vent into the roof, floating except for the rear grill that I put a layer of dicor under to keep it from moving.

If I could do it again I'd match them and use the Maxx Air 950 covers. The fantastic Ultrabreeze is cheaper feeling and the clips that hold it on aren't as easy to remove as their tutorials make it seem.

These look like MaxxAire covers.

As SHO mentioned, they don't mount to the roof, they have small "L" brackets that you mount the "L" bracket to the vent sides, then a bolt holds the cover to the bracket. The bottom of the covers will actually be about 1/2 to 1 inch above the roof.

IMHO - These are an absolute must for any MH or TT. They protect the very fragile vent lids, ,and you can leave the roof vents open without worry about rain or the wind ripping them off.

ALSO - Raccoons haven 't figured out how to get in them, They do know how to open the roof vents and get inside your MH

Caution is always a good idea when it comes to protecting your roof. It is hard to see why a little extra protection would be a bad idea.
