Why?
Hot are rises...... let the hot air out of the unit.

We leave ours open when we are parked and closed while driving. I guess you can leave them open when you drive but I choose to keep them closed, I heard road dirt/dust can get in while traveling.

I have the similar Fantastic Fan and vent cover. Leave it open all the time and when traveling run the fan at 50%. You have to turn the power off at the original fan switch because if you use the remote to shut it off the cover automatically closes.

You can leave them open except on dirt roads and after the AC has been on for awhile.

Max Air covers are the way to go. Waiter21 is so right. They are not installed directly to the roof. They are attached with L brackets on the sides of the vent openings. One trailer we had was a disappointment. The dealer through just plain laziness put screws right through the rubber roof rather than us the L brackets they came with. From now on I always install them myself. They do allow some grung to get on top of the actual vent covers, however its easy to remove them when doing the annual roof cleaning . And they do protect the covers from UV rays deteriorating in the sun.

MaxAir vent covers should be installed with the Hinged hardware that Only requires you pull 2 Rpins for cleaning access! They have a 6 year Warr.also! It is up to the RV owner on weather to leave the Lids of the vents Open,it makes NO difference in regard to Water intrusion if Moving or Parked! Rockwood and Flagstaff now put them on at the Factory! Maybe the other divisions will "Wake UP" to what customers want? Youroo!!
