For those that added ventilation in the belly pan, did you do the same for the grey and black tanks as well, or did you leave them sealed to help with winter heating?

Those look nice. So you used them on the black and grey as well? No concern about contributing to tank freezing in cold temps?

I may have to try them for the interior furnace vents as well. I've never been a fan of those plastic ones.

I will maintain the temperature "integrity" of all tanks; it gets too cold ...freezing...while we are still streaming into November.

No vents on the tank pans for me. If it gets cold, I'll just stuff some material into the clamshells.

3 cheers for rodent proofing! The only rodents that will be in my trailer will be the ones I invite in through the front door. 😉

I will be using aluminum louvers, 8 x 8 inches, 4 in all front to back with aluminum screen behind them. Then hinged to be able to open them and look for problems with a camera.
In theory, it should work like a charm.

Hi,
Just some clarification if I may..."Bolt on' or screwed on your belly skins? (I can't understand a bolt being accessable)
thanks
