Question 31FS RV Storage

I will be keeping my RV at a covered storage facility. No open fields near by, all concrete. Should I leave the top vents open slightly or keep closed up? Ambient temps, even in the shade under the roof, will get into the 90's. RV will not get direct sunlight.

I fear leaving it open may allow a critter of bird to get into the vent and build a nest or get in though the flimsy screen.

Does anyone leave the back auto vent on and set to say 95F?

Many people put on vent covers and leave the vents open. I just installed a pair of covers and am now leaving the vents open.

Are maxx air vents pretty easy to install?
Saw them at Camping World, but was hesitant to buy anything other than essentials until I got real opinions from users and not salesmen.

They are very easy to install. Need to drill 4 holes then put them on. They don't take long to install. Since installing it's rained almost every day and no issues with the vents open. I haven't traveled with them yet (that's tomorrow) but I expect to leave the vents open during that trip too which should air things out nicely.

Since installing my Maxx Air II vent, I have pretty much left it open, even when traveling. No issues whatsoever.

Absolutely the way to go - I have installed Maxxair on every RV I've owned. :hihi:
