Another dorky situation I encountered.
Two weeks ago, I was driving to Campland in San Diego. Between, the 60 & 57 freeway split, a commercial truck was pointing up at me. I was like wtf, I am not going slow based on the speed limit for trailers in calif. My wife said we should pull over and check but I didn't bother.
Last night I went into the trailer to sleep. I look up to the vent (over the bed) and said wow, I am seeing the sky outside. Must be nice to have a view like this
. I heard some howling wind but didn't think beyond it.
Tonight I went to the trailer and heard a louder wind and checked all the windows. Then I went to the vent and felt it with my hand. Found the knob that you turn to open the vent wet and noticed there wasn't any plastic above it
. Weird is that it rained today but the blanket barely was wet.
Anyways, the vent cover looks like the ventline brand on etrailer. Looking at the video, I think i have to climb to the roof top to yank out the hinge. Would a typical 8ft wide trailer be strong enough to support half body weight? I notice supporting beam right at that section.

Btw, trailer is a 2006 Thor Summit 22RB. Restroom also has a vent that I lost.
