Way to early

First night out in our new trailer and at about 5:00 am I have found the first mod I need to do black out the vent over our bed. Don't get me wrong I don't mind getting up early but I am not going to work so 7 is early enough. Any suggestions besides the obvious of painting it? I do have a max air vent cover.

Still going to be a problem when the vent is open isn't it? How about some eye blinds?

CAMCO Dual vent cover.

This is one of the first mods I've done.
East to install, easy to remove. Adjustable positions for ventalation if needed.

i painted my max air covers with the fusion pain, i found colors that complemented the rv color.

I applied a couple coats of 3M Rubberized Undercoating on the exterior of the factory vent. This stuff is black and blocks out the sunlight. I removed the MaxxAir vent covers, prayed the undercoating, then re-installed the MaxxAir.

Professional Grade Rubberized Undercoating (16 oz.) by 3M - Part 03584 - Advance Auto Parts

You can cut a piece of foam a bit oversized, and it will fit in the opening very nicely from the bottom. If you want to remove it, simply pull it out! Randy

I am kinda the other way around.....I wish mine were completely clear so I can see the tree silhouette or stars at night while laying in bed.

We just put one of those insulating inserts into the vent and pull it out when we want it out. Fast, simple, and it helps to keep the room comfy.
