Ceiling Vents Open during storage ??

In-between camping trips how many of you crack open your ceiling vents when storing your camper ? Just wounding about this to let the camper vent ... I have covers on my vent so rain wouldn't be a problem. Should I crack them open or not during storage ?

I leave mine open, I have a maxair cover on it so no worries of rain getting in.

Only time they're closed is when the A/C is on, otherwise open 24/7.

Opened or cracked year round. Just think of it as a house with roof vents. Only it has wheels.

Yep, ours stay open all summer long here in Alberta. We will close them up for winter storage, but once the trailer is summerized, the vents stay open 100% of the time until the last camping trip of the year.

I keep mine closed as it is in the carport and it way too humid to allow moisture in here in Florida.
