Not quite from the dealer, but after opening and closing a couple times. I just leave it unlatched permanently now. Only time I close it is when I winterize, and even then only sometimes ...

The movement to open the vent can be described as "up and out" at the same time. I had a trailer with the little hinged catches before, and the new design is I think much better.
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

On ours, one side opens easily while the other side doesn't. So what I do is open the easy side enough to get my fingers under it, and lift up while pushing the latch on the stuck side. It sort of works, pushing and pulling at the same time. It's an annoyance, but not enough to find a different solution.
