When stored, traveling or camping all vents open unless using the A/C or heat.

I'm just south of Atlanta and leave mine open with Maxair II covers year round. No problems. Let's a lot of the heat out.

No concerns about weather blowing in? Snow melt issues?

I too have maxair covers and have had rain blow in when camping. At home the camper 'points west' - as in the open end of the vents aim west, where the weather comes from.

And we do get snow here, and it blows (and I live in a windy high area - if I don't anchor swingsets, canoes and such they blow across the yard 3-4 times a year).

I keep em closed and in ~4 years haven't seen/smelled anything objectionable.

We live in very humid Florida and leave ours closed. No need to allow more humidity in than it already has. We have the trailer covered under an awning when it is at home. I would never leave the vent in to allow in more humidity. Some people use the desiccant that comes in a tub. That will absorb extra humidity.

We keep ours parked under a roof, and for five years have left the roof vents cracked open without issue. I also open the doors when working in the yard to allow the TT to breath.

I leave mine closed. I do use "damp rid" to pull any moisture from the air. I have never had one issue with smells or mold. I am a little closer to you than most, but your location will determine what you do.
