Roof vents on forester 3051s

Does anyone know how many roof vents are on the 2016 Forester 3051S Class C motorhome?

Wanting to order vent covers for new RV that we will be picking up in mid February.

Thanks for any info.

On our 3051 there is a Fantastic Fan in the bedroom, the small fan in the bathroom, a vent at the top of the stairs and a Fantastic Fan in the living room area.

4, but the 1 in the front with the automatic fantastic fan shouldn't be covered. I just installed 3 on my 3051.
Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Took about an hour. The dealer threw them into the deal but wouldn't install them without charging me labor.

Why shouldn't one be over the auto fantastic fan?

Fan-Tastic recommends using their own cover but we have a Maxxair cover on ours. Not sure if there is much difference.

Ours has the automatic motor with rain sensors and it can't open all the way with a Maxx Air cover on it. Could possibly damage the drive motor. Also been told that condensation/humidity can build up in the cover and force a "false rain" sensing issue thereby causing the vent to close.
