    After reading all the posts on installing mushroom vents I am still confused as to the best way to do this. I am only doing vents in the rear. Leave the baffle on or take it off? Use weatherstripping or not? Change length of bolt? Install it so that the white baffle is flush with the outside of the camper? If anyone out there has a sure-fire way of installing these vents please let me know. Pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Made all my vents adjustable from the inside by changing the bolts to hold down bolts.   Glued nuts in were the head of the bolt went.

    That sounds like a really clever idea. I think I understand but if possible could you send me a picture of the bolt and the cover with the nut glued on? On the exterior, did you leave the white baffle on or did you replace it with the weatherstrip inside the cover?

    Do a search on the forum ReplacinThoughts on forward mushroom vent placement?

    Thanks. I did find a picture of the bolt and cap. I’m still curious as to whether you kept the white baffle or went with the weatherstripping in the cap? Whichever method you used, any problem with rain getting in?

    Mine did not have enough thread to make the mods work. I left the baffle in, forward up, and made plugs for travel out of closed cell foam seat cushions.

    You need to make your own bolt.  I took out the baffle

    I also added apiece of anti fatigue as a gasket

    Do you mean making a gasket out of a piece of anti-fatigue mat? Did you place that in the cap or put it around the opening? A picture would be a great help. Thanks.

    Place it in the cap. I push a piece of the mat against the vent to mark the rim the measured an extra 1/4 into the outside
