Question Vent Covers Needed for Storage

I am a newbie and this will be the first time I will be storing in the cold Montana winters. What at a minimum do I need for all vent covers? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the advice. I have seen pros and cons for buying a complete cover so am not sure on that yet.

Welcome to the forum. Many of us use the Maxxaire or equivalent vent covers. You can leave them open without fear of rain coming in.

Thanks Crabman. Ok, so if I don't get a full cover, I need vent covers for the hot water heater, refrigerator, air conditioner, bathroom vent - anything else?

yes it is a coin flip but I think the disappointment with covers lies mostly with a poor fitting cover or one that is loose. Also sharp edges need to be addressed before the cover is installed. I just think it will be easier than sealing up all the vents every year.

I think he is referring to blocking snow from getting in the fridge furnace and HW vents. At least that is what I assumed

The covers I mentioned are just for the air vents, such as the one in the bathroom that has the fan in it. I do not cover the other openings such as the frig or furnace vent, but I do not have to deal with Montana snows either!

Maxxaire roof vent covers:

Thanks for the clarification. I do have the maxxaire bathroom vent cover. I was wanting to know when storing for months as a time and if I do not have a complete cover, what covers do I need to have? I'm assuming at least an air conditioner cover, wheel covers, etc. Anything else for these cold and long Montana winters?

No covers are needed.
