Vent Cover Replacement

We discovered two of our vent covers- the only two factory ones; the third we've replaced with a Fantastic Fan- cracked over the winter. Anybody have preferred replacement ones? Ideally ones that don't blow open as you drive, like the factory ones?

Thanks!

We put on MaxxAir vent covers
MaxxAir I Original Translucent White Roof Vent Cover - Maxxair 00-933066 - Vents - Camping World
with these, the vent cover will not blow off and you can keep your vent open all the time and not worry about the rain.

Above #2. I had hail damage to my bedroom and bathroom vent lids. Ordered new ones from Amazon and installed them yesterday. Also covered both with Max Air covers.

yes to all of the above, I bought a new trailer in March and didn't drive off the lot without them. Since i was still purchasing the unit, the put them on, but its simple.

You can use your vents when it rains.

One other aspect is that if you have a hailstorm, the covers will take the damage and not the actual lids. This means that you shouldn't have water intrustion

I went four Fan-Tastic Vent UB1500WH White Ultra Breeze Vent Covers with Bug Screen Kits.

I also installs four Fan-Tastic fans.

Yeah, we're in Alaska, so just the one fan works well for our 25DS! Might have to look into doing the covers, though. Was hoping to avoid that cost, but the factory vent covers are frustrating and hate to spend even that money to just put in the same poor quality item again.
