Shortly after purchasing our 2500TS, we had a shower. I had the vents open a bit and didn't think about it until going to the RV. Fortunately, the vents were not open much, but enough to get a bit of water on the plastic covering the new mattress. Lesson learned, we ordered 3 Maxxair II roof vents, including one for the fan vent. Great investment!! The vent don't open as high, but plenty high enough----and no surprises when it rains. We chose the Maxxair II vent because it had better venting.

I installed the vent covers after waking up in the middle of the night to heavy rain and having to get out of bed and close all the vents. Also, if driving on very windy days the covers prevent and help secure the open vents from the shaking and rattling.

Yep,
Here's mine, fresh from the factory. (the two ahead of the AC are fans, the front and back are just covered vents)

In recent history the fantastic vent covers were apparently the best design. They fit the fantastic event like a glove and the cover does touch the vent as the vent is reaching full extension open. However with diligent search I found that fantastic indicates, no problem, when the lid contacts the cover the motor stops automatically. We had to cover ours because when camped at the beach the moisture in the air kept registering on the rain gauge and closing the vent when we needed it open. Then it would dry out and open again. Then the moisture from the ocean would make it damp and it would close again. The vent cover seems to be a blessing and I find no downside to it at all except that I had to get up on the roof and crawl around to install it. The newly designed max air vent looks like it may potentially be just as good as the fantastic
