LOL!!! This along with the comment above that they have the ability to suck a small dog up through the vent certainly describe how well these vents work in comparison to what we have been used to in our other trailers!!

Mine worked well enough in our last trailer that I had them put in a second one this time around. They draw little enough power that I've started leaving both open while traveling and turning one on low while it's nearly 100 degrees outside. Makes a huge difference in initial cool down once we get where we're going.

Our 2015 V-Lite 30WFKSS has a large gap at the top & bottom of the bathroom door. When we were first looking at this unit, it was the only thing I really disliked about the trailer. Perhaps these 2 openings would create enough breeze to keep the smells away!

These gaps are by design

Small vent window

There should be a small vent window across from the toilet or bath that should be opened when the bath vent fan is running. This will prevent the
black tank or bath gray tank fumes from entering the coach when flushing
the JOHN. It will be a small window with obscure glass that should be opened.

Yes, they're called "Share Gaps". I hope I don't have to explain. LOL
