Push up fairly hard on each of those tabs. They are pretty stiff so it take some pressure.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Push up on both tabs, then pull out at the same time while still pushing up. I thought I was going to break mine the first few times but no problems so far.

Got mine opened about the 2nd day we had the camper and never closed the POS cover again. It's still hanging in there after 2 yrs and probably close to 6,000 miles on the trailer.

Leaving it in the open position, wedge a small piece of pipe insulation against the flap, that will stop it from flapping during travel. Better than struggling to pop it back open, when you need to vent again. Just a suggestion.

Don't really care if it flaps, I sure can't hear it and if I'm lucky, it will fall off.

I bet ants and other bugs will agree with you. Where I live, and some of the places I have camped, ants will be enticed by this delicious smelling opening.
