    2011 Cyclone 3950 HD Roof Vents

    Good Morning All,

    I have a 2011 Cyclone 3950 HD and can't figure out how the roof vent over the garage got opened. I can't find a button to push inside and don't remember opening it in the first place. Is there some magic button inside to open and close the vent. I have the side vents opened but can't figure out how in the hect that vent was opened. TIA for any assistance.

    Joe, dumb question. Is it a "fantastic fan?? If it is, then its on a thermostat on the wall. If not..then I give up.

    No the fantastic fan is in the rear above the couches/bunk. This one is more in the front of the garage and I can't see it from inside the RV?

    If it is a manual crank vent then I have had instances where this type of vent has "worked its way open" just from travelling down the highway if it was not tightly closed before hand. Don't ask me how it did this, but I suspect it was from eddy currents and vibration that sucked it open. Cranking it closed with a firm hand helped it from happening again.

    Your side vents open when travelling may also have created an air imbalance (between inside and outside) and pushed it open as well? I know, this might be stretching a bit but who really knows? I travel with two vents open (covered with max airs). Years ago, travelling on gravel roads my dad used to give me heck for having the rear window open in the back because it "sucked in" gravel dust (slider rear window on a 1/2 ton truck) without a front vent window open.

    If it is a real problem, you can put a Max Air vent cover on it and just leave it open.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care,
    Brian

    Brian,

    Don't know where there would be a crank? This vent can't even be seen from the inside of the garage......

    Joe, then this might sound really dumb. How do you know its open if you cant see it?? You got me really confused. Is it something you can hear or see only from the outside??

    Brian,

    We were sitting on the back deck at our house and saw it. It's on the door side of the Cyclone. But when I go inside I can't see it.

    Lou,

    Don't know what's happening when I try to reply but this is the second time I hit Post Reply that it didn't happen. Anyways we put our house up for sale back in April and I will be retiring for the second time also (ret AF E-7). I am currently working for the US Federal Courts as a Computer Systems Engineer at their main Help Desk in San Antonio. We will be heading to Wyoming (Grand Teton's) in May of next year and from there to Calif to see the Redwoods and then on up to Washington state to visit the DW's brother. I hope to be in Sturgis, SD for the rally next August. Be safe my friend and Ride to Live Live to Ride. Hope to see you on the road sometime.

    Peculiar you cannot see the vent from inside - unfortunately I have not been in a 2011 3950 so cannot picture where the vent is on the roof relative to inside access. Maybe another owner of a 2011 3950 can chime in....

    Sorry I cannot help you any more.....

    Take care,

    Thanks again Brian....It's weird that I can't find a switch/crank to close it. Maybe when it was being washed it popped open.
