Best vent cover?

We recently purchased a Flagstaff Micro-Lite and only one of the two vents has a cover.

We had the MaxAir I on on our old trailer, and it worked well, except you have to remove it to clean inside. I see the MaxAir II now flips up for cleaning, but it seems much bigger. Campco has a vent cover that has a grill that pops out, but reviews I've read say that the Campco tends to crack after just a few years of use. What vent cover do y'all recommend for a standard vent with no fan?

Care to elaborate? I read that the MaxAir II is much larger than the I. How does it attach to a standard vent?

I clean my MaxAir in the bathroom by:
Thin tools with stuff I spray and wipe from inside the bath fan. PITA, but it works.
A good couple of beers helps the motivation.
Helps to be ALONE. Prevents cussing backflow from DW ...

roof vent question

We have a SunSeeker and we purchased 2 maxi vents The OD size fits fine but if I install them I will not be able to open the roof vents on the RV in the full open position as the Maxx air vent is not tall enough
So I need to ask 2 questions
Does not opening the vents have a impact on venting
Is there a vent that allows clearance to open all the way
Thanks for your help
Steve

Is it all that important to open the vents all the

Yeah, I discovered that too, but I figured some ventilation is better than having rain come through your uncovered vent.
