Fan Insulation Cover?

We purchased a 2019 Sunstar 29VE earlier this year, so this is our first time dealing with cold weather. We plan to go out for a few weeks in late September into October. I was thinking that the roof fans could be covered to save some heat escaping. When I search for vent covers, I don’t seem to find the right product. Have any of you covered the fan with insulation?

Thanks

They make interior "pillows" to put into the fan opening to help with both heating and cooling. I being of cheep mind and little brains took a piece of styrofoam that I had laying around the house. Cut it to size, used aluminum tape on the edges stuck it in the opening. Works great.

WE often complain about Camping World but I try to srt things when I need them and we find this a good enough deal to pick them, even though my wife does sew:

We don’t have just a roof vent. I checked the manual and it’s called a Power Roof Ventilator. It has a switch for the fan and a slider to open or close the vent. Here is a link to a similar product https://images.etrailer.com/static/i...01_19_1000.jpg

So, the nice ‘pillows’ that Camping World offers won’t work. I think I need something that has Velcro attachments or another way to attach. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

We use the square “pillow” in our Fantastic Fan all the time. It keeps out heat as well as cold. We only remove it when we are using the fan.

How do you attach the ‘pillow’?

You don’t. It’s simply big enough to stay in place when you place it in the fan opening.

Ok. Your fan setup must be different than ours. Our RV ceiling fan is a flat surface with a screen covering the fan. So there isn’t any fan opening.

Thanks.
