Putting a cover over it seems to be the best and easiest solution. Then it doesn't matter if it's open or closed.

yes thanks, that's probably what's going to happen eventually.

What kind of cover are you talking about? I am not familiar with what you are talking about...

If it is not closed tightly the vibration will allow it to open especially if there is another window or vent that allows air to enter RV while moving.

It's a Camco replacement crank vent. Typical vent like nearly every RV has.

Thanks, I cranked it tighter and it stayed closed for the last short trip to the scales. I'm heading out fo a couple hundred miles this weekend, I'll see what it does. It cranks so easily, It's, as you said, vibrating and the pressure differential is allowing it to lift open on it's own. I didn't have any windows open however.

Something similair to this:



It allows the vent lid to be open without letting rain in.

I installed a "hook" using a light weight hanger that has the command strip which I can remove anytime. I stuck it to the plastic frame after tightening the cover down...and installed it in such a way that when I put a pony tail band on it and hooked it over the crank it would no longer rotate....I tested it on Hwy 90 with a lot of wind yesterday and after driving 500 miles the vent did not come open one time as long as this was hooked up. Once at a rest stop I took the band off and cranked it a little and sure enough, the vent started to move up and down with the wind, just a little but eventually it would open all the way. So thanks to a little hook I purchased at WalMart and my granddaughters pony tail band, the problem is solved. Problem solved.

Just put a Maxx-Air cover over it, money well spent.

We just had the same thing go wrong. The first time we took it out and being new to this trailer we assumed we missed a valuable step. We returned home yesterday and the same thing happened. In addition to the emergency window was popped open. We know for a fact we did not leave that open and had it in the correct locked position on our 2104s. Thanks for sharing
