    We've got an '88 Coleman Laramie and I'm wondering if anyone has ever put a (somewhat) permanent cover over their furnace exhaust.

    First, the furnace is not being used and I'd like to remove it entirely to gain some storage. But, I'd also like to have the option of putting it back in when I need it.

    I'd like to remove the exhaust cover from the outside and put a solid piece of something over it.

    Anyone do anything like this to their PUP?

    Sorry, misunderstood what you were asking...

    I put an insect screen over mine... I didn't realize you wanted to block it entirely.

    I cover the holes in the winter to keep the critters out. If I were to remove the furnace I would remove the grill, put something over the holes and reinstall the grill.

    You could get a vent to cover the hole, many people do that to cover a bad spot on the side, if you want it completely closed you could put something inside the vet to cover the louvers,

    I like the vent idea w/ something inside to seal it up. That would probably look best also.

    Tin foil taped inside would probably seal it.

    How about installing a porch light. It may be handy.
