There are covers that can be installed to allow the vent to stay open; I'm not a fan of them.

Thanks,

I’m of the opposite opinion, I can’t believe they still make RV’s without them installed right from the factory. I can’t think of a single situation where you’re better off without one.

To each their own........

I installed a Maxxair vent with 4 speed motor, electric open/close, remote and rain sensor on my first RV. I loved it. If it started raining at night I never had to get out of bed to turn it off. The lid closed and the motor turned off. I could also change the air flow direction and speed while laying in bed. On more than one occasion, I was away from the RV when it started to rain and I never had to worry about everything getting wet.

My Maxxair has a sensor to close the lid in the event of rain, works great. When the rain stops, and you want to open the vent again but the sensor is still wet, you can switch the sensor off in order to open the lid. So far so good...

Then, it begins to rain again, but the sensor is now bypassed...

I now have a cover.
