Question involving covering rv with windows open

Question:

It is hot and humid in the eastern region of the country, but I would like to put the cover on my 16' Casita with the windows open. Is that a good idea? or should I close them?
Thanks so much, from a newby.

Just thinking, is the cover breathable? or have vents?
Ventilation is better than being closed tight.

As long as the windows don't let water get in from rain or hoses, I'd go with more versus less ventilation. Nothing gets stale faster than closed up areas.


Also--are you using an air-drying product like Dri-Z-Air (I can never spell it)? You can get it at many hardware stores OR you can get a $1 version at The Dollar Tree. They both work to keep the inside dry and smelling better.


And be sure that you check inside periodically (at least once a month?) for any leaks or other issues such as mice or wasps. A recent problem is easier to deal with than a long-standing one.


PS We don't cover ours, but so far our home-done marine paint exterior is holding up okay. If we had a nice gel-coat, who knows?

Thank you for your response. Yes the cover has vents and is quite breathable. I think will leave windows open and check for leaks coming through any of the vent holes.

Peace,

Hey, Clamdigger, that sounds reasonable to me and Paul.
