Vent Cover

WOW, I checked the pricing on that cover it is over a $100.00. That is a bit too pricey for me. But thanks for the info. Frank

I wonder why he would suggest that. We have two fantastic fans. Both have covers. Both stay open most of the time even when the fans are are not running. It's good for air circulation, helps to keep excess moisture down. I like fresh air. I would not leave the fans open but turned off if there weren't covers.

You can get it for $75 at camping and free shipping if you're
a good sam member.

I know it's a bit pricey but it's a really good design. The hinges make it
easier to clean the fan and you WILL need to clean it from time to time.
We have a fan directly over our bed and we LOVE the ability to have a
breeze any time. Even in the most horrific pounding rain we can have
air. When we're boondocking, it's an absolute must to be able to leave the
fan open most all the time. We rarely shut ours even when the trailer is
stored at home.

Problem-- I went cheap and got the early cover with no hinges. Now my
fan is dirty and my lovely wife lays in bed and looks up and nags me to
clean it!! I have to remove the screws to do that and so it's not getting
done as often as she'd like

Spend the money and get the good one. You'll be glad you did in the
long run!

IF you spend just one hot rainy night in the trailer with the fan
shut you'll be kicking yourself for not having the cover!!

Just installed a FAN-TASTIC VENT ULTRA BREEZE VENT COVER on my bathroom fan. Easy install, fit is good and seems to work good. I went with white, because the other covers I already installed were white. CW has the white on sale for $49.99, got mine from the dealer I got the TT from $49.00...
