If you mean fridge vent covers our handbook says they should be used when washing the MH, when MH is in storage and when temperature is below 10 deg c

Fridge vent covers. Put them on when I travel to keep the draft down. Also leave them on if the temp drops, as they still vent ok :)

They are also useful when cleaning the MH, especially if you plan to use a power hose.

I'm confused...... (easily done).

Trying to buy winter vent covers for our Thetford N150 Fridge/Freezer. I have found two different types - which is best?

As mentioned above, your fridge should be totally room-sealed.
Many moron manufacturers don't achieve this during installation and risk making their victims, sorry customers, carbon monoxide death statistics!

Not recommended as it can give a false impression that its ok to let the pressure washer go over them, when they don't seal at all. Best method for cleaning is to give the vents a wide berth and clean round them by hand. As part of my valets I always remove vents, clean OFF the van and clean surrounds by hand.
