Yeah, no doubt. Knowing my luck, my trailer will be flooded with humidity moisture! LOL. Maybe I should close 'em. Hmmm

I agree, it might depend on your location. Here in Minnesota we are fairly dry. I leave our vent cracked (1/2”) all year. We too have a Max Air II cover.

I keep my trailer next to the house. In summer I leave the vents open. In winter they're closed but periodically I'll open them up for a couple hours to freshen the air inside.

Always open unless we are camping and it's particularly hot and humid. I discovered we get quite a bit of condensation in the bathroom (that's where the vent is) along the AC ducting pathway in the ceiling and lots of warm air pouring in through the vent. Always open in the storage lot.

Open year round. Let the materials breathe, otherwise moisture will work its way into or out of the trailer through the walls and insulation, leading to mold.

Open all year along with some Dri-zorb to eliminate moisture.

Here in Michigan I keep my roof vents closed during winter storage (have MaxxAir covers as well). I left one vent slightly opened one winter and found that moisture/snow could still work it's way in with the stronger winds.

I do however use DampRid.

Keep ours open year round and use Damp-rid bucket in storage. Also have a breathable TT cover in winter storage to keep heavy snow/wind out of the vent cover.

Just installed the MaxAir II on my Jayco TT 23MRB. It is stored outdoors, no power. Read through all the posts (thanks) I still have a question. Travel Trailer, covered, no power to it, should I leave the vent open or close it and put in some pods? There seems to be views on both sides but I am very respectful of those who know more than me. Thanks
