I have a 2013 8x22 VRV and the middle cover has come off of mine no less than 7 times.  I finally got tired of replacing it and bolted it on.  No more worries but I have no idea why it keeps on coming off.

We had a hail storm and are now replacing those covers... Thank you for the good info; we'll be replacing them with better ones.  But the video we watched talked about taking the fan out to re-attach the actuator...  And the screws in that are some kind of strange thing -- with torx-type points and 2 Allen-type flat surfaces.  1.  Do we need to drop the fan to re-attach the actuator? 2. If we do, what the heck are those screws?

I had a vent open itself on my last trip.  I'm 100% sure it was closed (it was the bathroom vent) and after my first stop I noticed it was 1/2 way open.  I closed it again, tightly, and it stayed closed.  I'm assuming that the vibrations and wind let it slowly open as I was driving.  I was prepared to rig up something to keep the handle inside from turning but it wasn't necessary.

I just replaced original cover with metal lid.  Tools-number 2 square, Phillips head and needle nose pliers.  This video was helpful, but does not include fan information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKORCcsBbfU  You do need to remove the fan to access the actuator screws, but take your time and it relatively easy.

Soffit vents are to let air in, ridge vents let it out. If the roof vents let the soffit air out, then all the air from the roof vents to the ridge could stagnate, heat up, and cause the shingles to fail. The ridge vent will only work if there is some other air to replace what is leaving. I'm not saying this is happening, only that it's a possibility. If there are gable vents too, then the fresh air could come from them for the peak.

It's all about the "design" and the building science behind it. If you install two things that are supposed to work together, and then add a third that isn't. That third is just going to get in the way...
