Cheap is right! We had our brand new, 2016 FR 26VFKSS stored all last winter, covered. This last spring after we took off the cover, we got a bad hail storm. 2 of the 3 roof vents were broken. The 3rd. vent survived because FR HAD installed a MAXAIR vent cover on that ONE. Why not the other two I thought. So I replaced both vent covers and installed MAXAIR vent covers on those.The only draw back with the MAXAIR is you lose some of the opening height, I think they open about 40% of the original.

Something doesn't seem right about the restriction to opening. My neighbor has the Maxair covers and I have the Fantastic Vent covers. Both restrict the opening, but only by 5% or less.
