From a long list of stolen ideas:

Here is my version of Bruce's (aka - The Mod Master) Compartment door vent cover project.

I joggled some aluminum on the sheet metal brake in a slight "s" shape:

Made three of them for the propane bottle and two battery compartment doors:

Primed and painted:

Then bonded them over the vents:

Installed:

Hopefully that'll do the trick and keep the rain out while still allowing air to circulate.

Happy camping.

Dave.

Hey luv2skyski,
I have been lost in your pages checking out your mods! Great work!
On this mod, I was wondering if it might not be a bit better if you turned it up side down and mounted it on the inside of your door... As long as the ends were sealed, it should keep the water out and eliminate any from coming in while driving, in theory any way...
Thanks again for sharing! [emoticon]
