We were constantly moving the rugs back over the vents even though they had the rubber backing.
Pets are pretty good at stepping over or around hazards, but accidents do happen. So if it prevents one from getting hurt, that's an added bonus.
If these don't work, I'll try what herk 7769 uses.
Gary, this is a good idea and i am glad you posted it. Dirt can be a problem collecting in the duct work. When it comes time to turn the heat on all the dust and dirt along with pet dander and there hair will be come air born if it is not cleaned out and this collects over the camping season.
We too place rugs over the vents and in our camper, we have one vent that is located at the entry door it is in a bad location for our Greyhound when it's time for him to come in he will not use the steps he leaps up and lands on the floor then slides and the vent is right there so can you imagen if his toes got caught in the vent? and for those that are not educated about Greyhounds they are bleeders and there are many Greyhounds that loose there nails and toes and break legs while racing on the track.
We will have to keep a rug at the door because of the sliding issue but the vent covers will work in the rest of the camper.
Pets are smart, they do well with four legs when some of us can't walk on two so this is a plus....Thanks for the idea.
