+1; I never latch mine back any more. And yes, it's quite difficult to get unlatched. Once you get the hang of it and figure out how it's supposed to work it gets a little easier (but just a little).
The only problem I've ever had is that it's one of only 2 vents in my trailer (the other is above bathroom). So on windy days or if there's a change in air pressure in the unit, it can sometimes be heard flapping about. On occasion it has gotten annoying enough for me to latch it back, but it's rare.
If I were in a MH, I would latch it back every time; though there may be enough bumps and rattles I might not notice the vent flap! LOL!
