Don't you have vent covers on your vents?

Even if I did, that would do nothing to keep out the humidity, pollen, and dust.

Used to have to leave our old TT in the North Woods for about 8 months every year,,,
left it closed up tight,,, it got to smelling so bad we could hardly use it,,, there was to much moisture in the ground under it for one thing !!! Left the front window open about an inch under the stone guard one year,,, a Chipmunk clamed up on the propane tanks and made his way in for the winter !!! Did not do much damage,,, but eat a bowl of the wives potporie,,, and died !!!

Because we store 10 minutes from home, we store with everything closed up but put a bucket of Damp Rid from Walmart inside before we close it up in the fall. Never have had a problem.

I keep my vents all closed up and I have the vent covers. I don't want anything trying to get in from the roof. I put a couple of air refreshioners and smells good when I use it again. Never had a problem with humidity or stagnant air

Hot Humid Central Florida makes me WANT to keep vents open and let heat out but even with covers over them...I fear the flying dust and polled intrusion as well as the HUMIDITY which challenges Houston!! So like a few others, mine are always closed in storage AND I also do the LARGE Damp-Rid bucket in the middle right before I close & lock the door.

I have vent covers on kitchen and bedroom vents. I leave those open all camping season, but close them when in storage for the winter.

I am having 2 covers installed today,,, a Fantastic cover over the fan in the front,,, and a Max-Air over the vent in the Bedroom,,, I had ordered the Fantastic one,,, then had the thought I should have 2,,, so I am going with the Max-Air in the rear that my dealer had in stock !!! Don't think I will leave them open in the winter,,, our MH rear faces the West,,, where a lot of our weather comes from !!! Guess I better check out this Damp Rid ???
