Whether you’re spending a weekend in the woods or traveling cross country, a functional RV roof vent is essential for a pleasant trip. A roof vent in both the bathroom and main compartment are highly recommended for letting out unwanted fumes and drawing in fresh air. In recent years, manufacturers have developed new forms of roof vents that allow RVers to upgrade their vents from basic, manual models to higher-tech smart models.

If you’re in the market for an upgrade to your RV roof vent, you should know what’s available before you pick your next unit. So in this lesson, RV expert Dave Solberg teaches you about the various types of roof vents you can buy for your rig. You’ll discover the most common models, from standard hand-crank vents to those that close automatically when they sense rain. With Dave’s help, you can find the right vent for your needs!

      Dear Philip,

      Please follow the instructions below to troubleshoot your video playback issue:

      1. Our video content is best when viewed on a computer manufactured in the past couple of years with a good broadband Internet connection (not dial-up).

      2. The latest versions of Chrome or Windows Edge are recommended, and Firefox browser works as well. Please try logging in with a different browser as this will help us to determine if it is a website issue or specific to your device. Here are a few options to try:

      a. https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/
      b. https://microsoft-edge.en.softonic.com/
      c. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

      3. Check to make sure your anti-virus software is not blocking our website. Unblock all websites.

      4. Make sure that your router’s software is up-to-date. You could also change the router channel and this is most helpful when you are running a 2.4GHz frequency because these can get congested with other appliances.

      5. Make sure that you do not have too many devices in your location using the internet at the same time (for example: cell phones, baby monitors, household appliances, etc.), due to the internet provider.

      6. Delete your internet history. Most web browsers use a feature called “caching” to display frequently used information, images, and web resources. Caching stores or “caches” this information on your computer so your computer doesn’t have to download the same information every time it visits the same webpage. Caching makes subsequent visits to the same website or webpage faster. In some cases, caching may have undesirable results. If a website or webpage has been updated since your last visit, your browser sees the update and then loads the new content instead of the old cached content. Sometimes however, this doesn’t work as expected and your browser displays the old information instead. To clear your cache, please click the below link and select the appropriate browser:
