It turns out that most RVs come with vents that will leak if you open them up while it’s raining. To fix this problem, you’ll need to install a vent cover that fits securely over the top of your existing RV vent.

Two popular choices for a vent cover include the Camco Aero-Flo and the Maxxair RV Vent Cover. Both look and function about the same.

Below you’ll find a couple of videos detailing the installation of each type of vent cover. It’s not as difficult as you might think. Plus, you don’t need to worry about doing a bad job or not sealing the vent properly. The vent covers are designed to sit over your existing vent, and you don’t need to have a super-tight seal around them.

Note: The Aero-Flo comes in a variety of colors including champagne, silver, and smoke. The colored vents cost a little more than the standard white version.

Note: Shown above is the Maxxair I vent cover. MaxxAir now has a new and improved version of this vent cover that allows twice as much air to flow. You can find the Maxxair II vent cover here. It also comes in black.
