Yes they came with the Senators, had some with my Indiana, but not my Pegasus 524, so you either have to make them part of the deal or pay for them later!!

Further to my earlier post, my Unicorn Users Manual makes it clear that the ventilation grilles must be kept clear. See 4. 8. 21 and 4. 8. 24.

in Winter.

 

So why use covers, it seems to go against the Manual ?

Good for when in storage and also if you are a hardened cold weather caravanner. My olympus has thetford vents. I looked up the fridge on thetford website and it says good for when in storage and should be used for temperatures below 8 degrees

Our Pegasus manual states that the vents should be kept clear, but that you should use winter covers when the outside temperature falls below 10 degs, otherwise the cooling unit may not work effectively.

sure you better with covers in winter than not conon sense me thinks

Assuming that the English interpretation is what I think it to be then it is not common sense at all, just an alternative point of view. As has been said before, covers can do their own damage so that has to be balanced against any damage they might prevent. It's down to personal choice and mine would be not to use them.

Winter fridge vent covers should be used when the temperature drops to 8 degrees and below.

If not used, the fridge gets too cold and does not work correctly.

 

They are also useful when washing the van to keep unwanted water out of the back of the fridge, and also when storing the van for prolonged periods to keep wind blown dirt and insects out.

If used as per instructions vent covers would do no damamage but as some stated the manual states not to be used. Last year on Boxing day we was in minus 11 and below 8 for the next couple of days, never noticed the fridge had stopped performing. l agree they are useful when the van is in storage but l would remove when usuing the van.
