Foe those fasteners I use my old "Snoopy Wrench". Anyone that has ever been in Army aviation knows what they are, and probably have 3-4 of them they acquired over the years. IIRC the proper nomenclature was Wrench Tool, 1/4 Turn Fastener. In civilian terms it was a tool for DZUS Fasteners. You can find the military version on the internet (eBay). They run about $11. Moroso makes a reasonable facsimile ( PN 71600), and they are a few bucks cheaper:

Expensive tool for something that costs 25 -- a US quarter. The Canadian version is even cheaper at today's exchange rate.

On a pop-up or A-frame with the continuous run fridges you are in and out of the vents at least once a day because that's where the controls are. The high wall units have a larger fridge with controls inside (even more of a pain when the camper is folded down). When camping, I would usually keep the pins in the loose position for easy vent removal. When hooking up, turning the pins to the tight position was part of the "ready to tow checklist".

I keep/kept a dedicated straight slot stubby screwdriver in the driver door storage of the tow vehicle.
