This is the Whale heater vent on my 'van. It's a new(ish) vehicle and I didn't see any cover included with all of the rest of the kit that came with it.

Does it NEED to be covered in winter at all? If so (or even as belt n'braces) what's the best thing to cover it with? I've seen some ingenious covers about, (including a CD case used as a cover for circular vents!)

Don't want to use gaffer or masking tape because of reaction with the plastic.

Any ideas or advice folks?

Why do you need or want to cover it ?

What you see in your photo is the cover.. you can't cover the cover and use the heater.

or is this cover just for storage purposes.. ?

From user manual

When using the heater in winter ensure that the flues are not blocked by snow or fallen leaves etc.
When the Space Heater is not going to be used for a long period of time, we recommend that the open end of the combustion air and
exhaust flue are covered to prevent ingress of leaves etc.

Was a newbie, now a Middie.
I suppose a cover can be handy to stop small crawly creatures getting into the heater. Truma supply a winter cover.

Thanks lads.
No, I'm aware that you can't cover it whilst in use. I've begun the laborious task of wintering the MoHo and wanted something to stop shite and grizbies getting in through the slits.

makes sense..

I'd use a bit of plastic and gaffer tape to secure..

to clean off the gaffer tape glue use white spirit..
