While parked and locked up, do you leave your vents open (protected of course) or close it up tight. Noticed I left our roof vent opened and have left it that way unless someone has a negative experience.

When we had MaxxAir vent covers I always left two of the vents partially open when the trailer was in storage.

I always leave mine open a smidge when I'm not using it. Helps keep the moisture level down.

We don't have vent covers (yet) but if we did I would leave the vent open, especially since the camper is out in the open and we get quite a few 100+ days in the summer.
