What is the accepted method of providing ventilation in the coach when not using it during the summer? If I leave the windows open a little there is the chance of rain and dust/pollen getting in. The roof vents are open as they have MaxAir covers. This is fine for exhaust but how do I let make up air in?
Your tips and suggestions will be appreciated.

Gary

Gary, if you have the horizontal sliding windows, Max Air also makes a vent for these windows so you can leave them cracked open for ventilation. If you are needing to secure the window, you can cut a dowel (sp?) or use a 1" X 1" the length of space between the partially open window and the window frame to restrict as to how far the window can be opend and place it on the bottom track window would slide in.

Mike,
Thanks for the tip on MaxxAir. I just finished installing the MaxxAir Turbo Vent and sure enough there was a brochure in the box. However, the WindowAir does not come any larger than 33" size (the company has no plans to make larger models) and can't be used on an escape window. I can (and will) put one on the non-escape bedroom window but my salon windows are 36" and 44" and yes, they are all sliders.
I just wanted to avoid leaving the a/c on 24/7.

Gary
