Question Air Vent Covers

Just purchased a Pinnacle 38FLFS be delevired in Feb. Was thinking of having them put them put Max Air Vent couvers on but not sure if they will work or needed. About 80% of the time am at a seasonal site. Any ideas would help.

I have this cover and yes they are well worth it. I leave my vent open when I am away and have never had water through the vent. And it very easy to install yourself.

Covers (in my opinion) are one of those "must haves" because if you havem' you never have to worry about leaving the power vent open. Cheap peace of mind for me.

I prefer the MaxAir II covers because they allow more airflow.

I agree, the Maxx covers are worth every penny....., the Maxx plastic is much more robust than the OEM plastic roof vent lid and doesn't get brittle (UV) over time like the OEM vent lid.

I have one on mine and it's a good thing, like the others have said you can leave your vent open and not worry about it, we have a seasonal and there was one weekend that it wasn't closed before we left for 5 days

I have maxxair on mine and think they are great for the reasons mentioned above. The down side is you won't get much of a breeze through your vents with the maxxair on them.

Awww c'mon guys.... what fun is it camping if you don't get a few drips of water on head sitting under the opened fantastic fan vent watching TV...

I apparently need to get a couple of those vents covers as well...

x2 on the covers being a must have. The Maxx Air II are the way to go. You need airflow 24/7 and this way you can leave open vents cracked or wide and your unit will be happier for it.

They are easy to clean too as it's only 2 pins to pull and flip them over.
