Vent Cover

Thanks, I could not find anything in my manual about the roof vent. This whole thing started with the dealer offering a cover kit. It included a Fantastic ultra breeze roof mounted cover, and screens for the furnace exhaust etc. I turned down the offer. When we got the trailer home. I started to look at the roof vent and wondered how you could put the cover over the roof vent properly. So I thought I would see if anyone else had considered or had installed a roof vent cover. You may want to Google Fantastic vent covers, if you are not familiar with these.
Thanks for your response....

The closer probably just went through the checklist of after sales options and offered a standard package without really understanding what camper you had. You did well to turn it down. I bet (or at least hope) the service department would have seen the folly and liability in a reverse vent cover and turned the install down too.

OTOH, a furnace exhaust screen is reasonable, but is an easy self install.

Yesterday I was working on my new A122TH and a storm came through that dumped a lot of rain & hail in a very short amount of time. I had the Fantastic Fan going at the time and have the vent lid open about 1/3 of the way. I only had a few drops of rain make it in the trailer during the entire storm. The pitched roof and fan cover performed well above my exceptions for a storm of this strength. I see no reason to a vent cover on after that unexpected test.
