When the fifth wheel is stored between uses in the Texas climate, should the vents in the roof be left open to allow air circulation. My vents have rain sensors which close on contact.
What are your thoughts?

We have the Maxair vent covers and leave our vents open.

If your rig has any jalousie windows, you can also leave them open a little. It's pretty hard for rain to get in them.

If you trust the rain sensors and don't have the Maxair covers, then leave those open some also.
Moving air is good. Especially if you have humidity.

Do you have the trailer hooked up to power while it's stored? I don't recall if my Maxair vents automatically close if the battery voltage gets low. If you don't have anything keeping the battery charged, I would be concerned about it raining in.
