In order to maintain a stable environment inside your mobile living space, some of your systems will require ventilation. But these holes or vents will also need to be covered to further amplify their performance, which creates a fundamental need for Vent Caps. If you have never thought about your vent caps, then it might be time to take a look at what service this seemingly minuscule features have to offer.
RV MUSHROOM CEILING VENT CAP
First, let’s look at the Mushroom Vent Cap. These caps are used to cover the vents over areas like the kitchen and bathroom where removing moisture and smoke is key to a healthy RV. The mushroom’s job is to keep water out like a little umbrella, but did you also know that it keeps debris from collecting in your vent? That is important because if your interior is not properly ventilating due to a blockage, then carbon monoxide could be building up in your domicile.
RV PLUMBING SEWER VENT CAP WITH SCREW
The other vent cap we offer is the Plumbing Sewer Vent Cap. This one is used to cover your wastewater system vent. If not properly ventilated, the fumes or methane gas from your black and gray tanks will build up in the living space of your recreational vehicle. Using the proper cap effectively and naturally extracts the odors, maintains proper tank pressure, and keeps weather elements from dropping in unexpectedly and causing a blockage.
Since both types of vent caps are an essential part of your RV’s ventilation system then their design and construction should be as heroic. That’s why our vent caps are made from durable materials, offer functional design, are aesthetically pleasing and easy to install. Because when you are riding down the highway, you don’t need to be worried about what your vent cap is up to or what that weird smell is.
Over time the plastic of standard vent caps will break down from exposure to sun and extreme temperatures. Vent Caps from RecPro are molded using a plastic composite and treated with UV inhibitors to prolong the life. You can feel the built-in flexibility and sturdiness and be affirmed that fewer replacements will be required.
You might be thinking that these caps look like so many others you have seen. True, we are not re-inventing the vent cap. Instead, we have selected the products that offer the most functionality that support the RV lifestyle. Both feature a low profile to cling close to your roofline and the curvature of the design supports aerodynamics as you travel. Even during a violent storm, the rounded slim design will help keep wind, water, and debris moving past instead of clinging.
An RV Mushroom Ceiling Vent Cap from RecPro has a wide enough diameter enough to fit perfectly on a majority of mushroom vents as well as ensure adequate air circulation is achieved in your living space and attic. It also features an extra downward grill component in addition to the upper rain cap to help secure your mushroom vent against dust, insects and other external elements.
The Plumbing Sewer Vent Cap from RecPro can adequately go with most of the standard size vent pipes on the market today. With a practical dimension of 1.5-2”, it is one of the most usable sewer vents available. It comes with a reinforcing screw at the top of the vent cap that ensures a more secure fit and that it is not blown away by heavy storms or strong gales. As an additional benefit this screw allows for easy removal of the cap should a blockage occur and the vent line needs to be flushed.
Who wants to go spoiling the look of their RV with a Cap that looks out of place or is discolored? It is therefore imperative that you get an accessory that matches the exterior of your recreational vehicle, camper, or boat. Vent Caps from RecPro are available in an attractive white color that is sure to go well with the exterior surfaces of most RVs. The sewer vent cap is also offered in sleek black. Both have UV inhibitors to keep them looking fresh and blending with their surroundings longer.
