What screws Jan? All the vents I have had there was no screws involved it was just a case of removing the vent, fitting the cover inside it then refitting the vent.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

In my picture of the new vent there are screw holes under the vent itself, thereís no other way of holding the unit in.

The inner part (frame) with the screw holes is fixed permanently to the MH body. The outer part with the mesh is clipped to the inner part so there should be no need to remove any screws.

Maintenance access to the fridge burner is via the vent, simply remove the vent and reach in through the frame to the rear of the fridge.

The trouble would be removing the top cover, I cant get it off the other end, but I think everything is OK, I will test the fridge and I imagine if it works properly on gas then its OK.

They are designed to only be fitted if you use your fridge when the ambient temperature is low (I think around 5įC.
The reason being that if you donít fit them the fridge gets too efficient and freezes everything inside! (Which I can confirm does happen)

I have never ever fitted them for storage etc. My MH and now caravans have all been subjected the prevailing weather on the same side as the fridge vents. In even the worst storms rainwater has never got into the void behind them. By all means fit them for storage if you want to, but if your MH is in a storage compound be aware they are items that can very easily be removed by someone else. Possibly because of the ridiculously high cost of them.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
