Maybe I'm misreading or reading into this too much but if my AC is on I close the vents except in the bathroom while showering.If the trailer is parked at home or at a camp site without electric I just open them to allow air in.

The one in the living room is open but we shove that square pillow thingy in it when we set up. Keeps the light glare off the TV. I always keep the bathroom one open but have noticed water on the ceiling near the vent so may try closing it in humid weather and see if it changes..

+1 and I have a insullation pillow for the BH vent which helps keep heat out. Vent open = humidity and heat in.

I installed the smoked Max Air II vent covers which cuts the glare down to nothing and I haven't noticed any water around any of the vents or the ceiling. Just curious given we have the same unit.

Do the math. Hot humid weather = A/C running to keep heat and humidity out of the RV. Open vents while running the A/C is about like opening a window when you are running the furnace. Either way you are letting the cold or hot air in from outside which by any account is defeating the purpose of heating or cooling the interior. Showering or cooking, open a vent to eliminate heat / humidity but remember you have to open a vent or window elsewhere if you are running a fan to pull air to the outside.

vent open to varying degrees all the time, unless it's pouring rain or the AC is on. ]I like my fresh air.
