leave top up in winter?

Hi, new Jayco owner and new to the forum. My Jayco pop up is stored outside for the winter (Maine) but in a shed (of sorts) protected (more or less) from the elements. Should I open the top a foot or two for ventilation? I have Kanberra Gel in there now for mildew relief. Thanks, Larry

No the elements are hard on canvas. Must be cared for and maintained with love.

If you leave it open it is a lot easier for critters to get into it. I had pop up that was 15 years old when I sold it. never left it open and never had a problem

The Sport 10 PUP I had came with a roof vent with the MaxAir Cover. So I'd just crack the vent open a tad and left the unit closed up otherwise over the winter. Did not have any issues with water or moisture buildup.

In sort of a shed that's sort of protected from the elements? Do not leave it open!

We kept ours closed for many yrs without a problem. Then, I particular severe winter (Lots of snowfall) we didn't lock the side storage door. Rodents managed to get in and chew through cabinet door to gain access to the interior. Absolutely destroyed it. Chewed through everything with the exception of the wiring. Would have to replace canvass netting and all. Ended up junking it. Now we are happy owners of hybrid TT. X23j. Love it.
