The interior of your RV can get very warm during late spring and summer, especially when driving on sunny days. Running your air conditioning units to eliminate the stuffy feeling in the air can be a huge waste of electric power and money, It makes no sense to run the A/C when you’ve got a large air vent in the middle of your RV roof. It’s the perfect way to get fresh air into your RV interior.

But what about those days when it’s warm but raining? Keep that fresh air flowing by doing an RV vent cover installation. A VentMate vent cover will allow you to keep your air vent open through all kinds of weather, but will shield the opening in your roof from rain, leaves, and other foreign objects. An RV vent cover installation can save you a lot of money in electricity costs, and still keep your rolling home cool and comfy.

In this video you’ll learn how to install the VentMate vent cover on the roof of your RV.
