Re: rooftop vent

From the second picture, the roof doesn't look perforated to me.

Re: rooftop vent

Thinking is dangerous to your health. I try to do as little as possible.

Re: rooftop vent

i blocked off the vent using a piece of felt underlayment, and insulated the huge gaps between the bus skins around the vent hole

Re: rooftop vent

i agree. it could be for that, except that there are ribs between the skins about a foot away from the vent on all 3 sides except toward the front, so im not sure if there would be a good air exchange between the skins, at least this is how it is on a Wayne, Im not sure about other manufacturers. after closing it off i have noticed a definite temperature increase as i believe more hot air from my heater is being retained, and not going straight out the top of the bus. i could see it being used to reduce condensation from inside the bus though.
