Smile Vent Idea

Hi,

It's hot in here as it should be in summer. I am considering making a hole in the back for the high point hot air to vent out.

Any experience with cutting squares or holes, and what tools did you use?
Considered a jig saw but they seem to beat up the paint. Of course i have 20 rolls of tape so i could tape it good first...

Tin snips? Is this metal workable with good snips?

I may put a fan there once it is opened, and a rain awning type vent.

Going to invite some guidance and nap on it

Do you have an air compressor?
If not an angle grinder would work. I'd go with a 14" rv roof vent with rain cover.
The good ones are pricey but worth it.

you can gert those vents with fans in them too to run when you asre stopped.. if you have solar or large batteries you can run that fan when your bus is parked..
