RV vents may not be at the top of your priority list if it needs some fixing or replacing, but it should be. Good ventilation is very important to a healthy RV lifestyle.
Here’s a video I found while reading other RV related blogs. This video is very helpful in providing information of the importance of proper ventilation and how to replace the ventilation system is necessary. It shows installing the new vent from the outside in, including drilling new holes and hooking up the electrical, which is something some people dread doing. However with a few simple steps, you can save yourself money and have the pride of tackling the job yourself.
As you can see from the video, it’s very important to work with a clean surface when you place in the new vent so that the caulking sticks. And even more importantly is the safety of correctly matching up the electrical wires. When in doubt, you should check to make sure the polarity is correct with a volt meter. You don’t want to shock yourself now do you?
You should check all of the ventilation vents on your RV at least twice a year to make sure that they are in proper working condition and most definitely fix those that are not.
