Well it seems like most RVers using maxx-air vent covers, are happy campers. My Question is...... During the winter months, Nov. through Feb., would it be wise to keep my standard vents slightly open allowing some air to circulate or leave them closed? I'm concerned with mildew. Thanks Brian.

I plan on installing some when Winter is over. I personally wouldn't leave mine open, but mostly because of the extremely harsh weather where I live.
Example...
This morning it's -30 F, and we are cleaning up 18 inches of new snow from yesterday.
I'm sure my roof vents are under a good bit of snow by now!

I dont have the maxx air's yet either, I like them , wife doesnt, she likes being able to see the stars lol. We may get them in the spring. What we do tho is to leave the window over the dinette ever so slightly cracked, thus letting a little air in and out, but not any water. My folks did this on their old '94 model, and never had leaks or any mold/ condensation problems either. hope this helps, Jerry
